Macadamia Nuts - Where to buy? YYC

cn1822 Jan 19, 2011 10:45 PM

This is awkward for me to ask since I thought it was a more common ingredient, but it turns out I was wrong. Can't find them anywhere. I checked Superstore, Sobey's, Safeway, and a couple other places as well; about the only places I haven't checked are the Organic stores. Does anyone have an idea where I can buy some in bulk (for baking)? Please and thanks!

    I just saw them in bulk at the co-op midtown market.

      Thanks! I'll check it out when I can. They're awfully elusive.

      They're usually in the nut aisle, as opposed to the baking aisle, if that helps.

        I tried that as well. Couldn't find it. :(

        I get mine at Community Natural Foods. They're not that expensive either.

          I fairly sure Amaranth carries them too (in their refrigerated bulk section).

            I've also seen them in London Drugs and Walmart - both in the nut/snack aisle not baking.

              Planet Organic South has them too, in the refridgerator section, near the dairy/eggs.
