Non-Dutch processed cocoa powder in Toronto?

Anyone know where to find non-Dutch processed / non-alkalized / natural cocoa powder in Toronto? I think brands that fall under this category are Hershey's, Ghirardelli, and Scharfen Berger. However, I looked at McCall's and its listing for Ghirardelli unsweetened says it is alkalized. I'm not sure about the Callebaut either that they sell.

    1. From the other thread looking for "Dutch Processed" cocoa someone posted this:

      Bruno's Fine Foods at Yonge & St. Clair has a good selection of Dutch Processed and non-Dutch Processed cocoa.

      There is a lot of info in that thread about both dutch processed and non-dutch processed

      I would think places like Whole Foods, Pusateri's, etc would have it too but according to that thread most of the stuff sold in Toronto is non-dutch processed and it is hard to find dutch processed in Toronto so you should be able to find it...

        I went into several stores with no luck. Everything from No Name to Fry's to Valrhona is Dutch processed. That thread is two years old. Seems things have changed.

          Dufflet on Queen West has (or used to have) a small section where they sell high end chocolate and cocoa, among other gourmet ingredients ... that's where I got my cocoa a few years ago (a really big bag) ... maybe give them a call and ask ...

      2. No Frills at Bathurst and Wilson carries the Hershey's. It is in the kosher section. Not sure what part of town you are in but any large supermarket with a large kosher section (generally along Bathurst between St Clair and the 407) would carry the Hershey's.
