Hunt's Ketchup in YYC?

n
nonlinear Jun 15, 2010 09:22 AM

Does anyone know where to find Hunt's Ketchup in YYC? It's a consistent winner in ketchup taste tests, but I can't seem to find it in Calgary. I'm not even sure if they sell it in Canada or not!

Thanks!

    Good question - I've seen it referenced in a number of BBQ/smoker related recipes and would like to know where to get my hands on some as well.

    I did a quick google search and a similar question came up for Saskatoon. Someone recommended trying Safeway as they apparently sell it in BC and may carry it across other provinces.

      Write the company.

          Just curious as to who you tried to contact.
          ConAgra has a .ca site http://www.conagrafoods.ca/en/contact.jsp
          And there is a toll-free number on that page as well.

          You might have better luck with the Canadian site if you were contacting the US one.

          FWIW On http://www.huntstomatoes.ca there is no mention of ketchup.

            Ketchup is worthy of its own website

            thanks swbossert! Do you know which Sobey's location carries it? I just tried the location on Southland, and they didn't have it.

                How long ago did you buy it from Royal Oak Sobeys? Was it recently? I was there today and walked up and down the aisles but couldn't find it. Do you remember which section you found it in? Thanks.

                    It was a few months back... it was with all the other ketchup.

                    Perhaps they aren't stocking it anymore. :(

                      Sorry folks... I guess they don't have it in right now :(

                      I did see the hunt's BBQ sauce.

                      Hopefully they bring it back soon. :)

                I'm pretty sure somewhere, walmart, zeller etc will bring it in for the summer, because they often bring limited/seasonal bulk food items from the US.
