black treacle in philadelphia
hello everyone - i am looking for black treacle (not regular treacle, and i cannot substitute blackstrap molasses since it is for brewing beer, not baking). have you seen this anywhere? i know i've seen regular treacle and lyle's golden syrup around, but i can't think of a single place to find black treacle (other than mail order sites). if you have any helpful hints, let me know please!
hehe, yes, but he doesn't carry it either. i spent an hour there over the weekend while the bf put together all of the other ingredients he needed for this batch. you should stop in, the bf does the brewing and we both do wine, and barry has tons of stuff for all levels of amateur brewers/vintners. lots of beer and wine kits for beginners too and his stuff is so much cheaper than home sweet homebrew (but that guy has some great cats).

I know this post is old, but in case anyone in the Philadelphia area is searching for black treacle, O'Neill's Market in Glenside sells it. I just bought some today for a gingerbread recipe. You might want to call ahead to see if they have what you want in stock. They carry a lot of UK products. Here's a list they provide on their website:
It's a short walk from the Glenside train station (take either the Warminster or Lansdale/Doylestown line), near the Keswick theatre.
