Where to Find Strawberry and Mango Extract online?

I'm having a hard time finding pure strawberry and mango extract online that will ship to Canada.

Olivenation used to but they don't anymore :( Any ideas??? I really want to use some for cupcakes...

      Thanks for the links! Amazon only ships to Canada if that seller specifies it. So the first link with the mango extract will, but Olive Nation, which carries the strawberry ones on Amazon, will not :(

        you missed the one from Cook's, and according to their FAQ page they'll ship anywhere outside the U.S., you just have to place the order via phone or e-mail instead of through the website...

          Ah! Another option, thanks GHG! One of their other pages stated they didn't but I'm glad you found the FAQ! Canada doesn't have to suffer! :)

    2. Look up The Perfect Puree. They sell on Amazon too. I believe their minimum order is three containers and with cold shipping will run about $80 dollars - spendy but the purees are pure and last quite a while. All of the purees I have tried are excellent. The lime and lemon are concentrates and last forever in the freezer. The prickly pear and passion fruit purees are my favorite.

        Looks amazing...but again, shipping to Canada is not something they offer :(

          you know, the OP was under the impression that Olive Nation no longer ships to Canada, but you're right - according to their website, they do!

            ghg, yes; that's why I posted it. thank you for confirming my reply.

              Thanks everyone! Actually what happened was Olive Nation stopped shipping to Canada but shortly after I posted this, I was able to convince them to temporarily take my order!! So it's a one time deal, I think. Ordered some mango, blackberry and strawberry extract! I've never used it in baking but I imagine it would intensify the flavors, no?

              1. re: freelancer

                then they really should update their website because that shipping page still lists Canada!

                use a light hand with extracts. i can't speak to experience with the flavors you bought, but i've found that extracts in general can taste (and smell) very artificial if you go overboard. some are worse than others - you couldn't pay me to use almond extract because to me, the aroma and flavor are both just WRONG...but i will sometimes use pure vanilla extract (though i prefer to use whole vanilla beans if possible). i suspect the berry flavors might not be as harsh a some others, so a little could give your baked goods a nice boost. just proceed with caution ;)
