Where to buy Condorelli-brand Italian "Latte di Mandorla" (almond milk beverage)?

s

Does anyone know where to puchase the above, particularly in the Toronto/GTA area? Widely available in Italy (where I last enjoyed it), it comes in the following formats: a three-pack of 200 mL drinking boxes, as well as a 1-litre container.

I've tried the "Mandorlat" brand but it isn't as nice.

It's possible that some of the smaller "Mom and Pop" Italian grocery stores carry it - if any of you could point me in that (or another) direction, I'd be very grateful!

Thanks a lot and Happy New Year!

Susan

    Highland Farms in Vaughn next to Wonderland not sure if that was the brand but definately almond milk but I think it said "syrup", cloudy in a odd shaped bottle.

        Out of curiosity, what makes this different from the regular almond milk we can find here?

          It's smoother, creamier and overall has a more delicious and authentic almond flavour than the ones here, wouldn't you say, Dewster? Do try it!

            Yep its sweeter and more like an amaretto cream than say Silk which I hate. Would not work on your Shreddies ;)

            I think it's meant to be more of a flavoured treat than a milk substitute? But I am just speculating since I haven't tried either :)

              You're right, jules, it's not really a milk substitute like local almond, rice, soy etc. milk would be.

              The ingredients:
              - water
              - sugar
              - selected almonds (11%)
              - emulsifier: sucrose esters of fatty acids
              - anti-oxidant: L-ascorbic acid
              - flavourings

              Just a nice beverage to enjoy as a special treat!

            Hi everyone,

            Just reporting that I recently discovered Condorelli Almond Milk at Lady York Foods (2939 Dufferin St., North York, ON) @ $4.99/litre. They also carry another Italian brand, ? Dolcon, but Condorelli is the best!!
            (And an intriguing cocktail tip from the Italian radio host who was broadcasting there that day - almond milk with mint liqueur; although the LCBO seems to have discontinued selling this type of liqueur.)
