Hebrew National Hot Dogs in Montreal

  • 17
  • Share

This is a question for anyone in the downtown Montreal area: Does anyone know if there are any stores that sell hebrew national hot dogs in Montreal? I have tried Metro and Provigo and so far have not found anything. I am tempted to check the walmart, but it is a bit of a hike for me and I'm reluctant to go unless I have good reasons to believe that they carry them.
I have tried to determine if they are sold in canada at all or not, but haven't been able to find anything one way or the other.

Thanks!

  1. According to this thread, they may sometimes be available at Snowdon Deli and Loblaws (St-Jacques), presumably in the kosher section.

    Best to call first to confirm, since they're both outside the downtown area. Good luck!

        Excellent!

    2. not available in montreal

      1. I have also seen them at Quality Fruit on Westminster corner Mackle (cote-saint-luc). BTW they carry quite a few products that you can only buy in the States.

          Like what?

            Certain types of cheeses like Alpine Lace, Breakstone's cottage cheese, also low fat cookies and Weight Watchers items. Generally US foods that are either low fat or kosher or both - catering to the local CSL crowd. Having said that, happens to be a great fruit/veggie store with excellent produce (and prices to match) run by really nice people.

        2. They are available at certain Deli's sometimes at Snowdon Deli sometimes at the bagel joint on Queen Marie Rd (few blocks b/4 Victoria on south side) but for over $10.I think you could pay a trip to Platsburgh for that.They used to be at Loblaws St Jacques but got busted by the language police for no french on the package.My guess is that the Deli's are going to the USA and thats why they are 60% more expensive.

          1. I've seen them at National grocery on Sherbrooke St (close to Vendome metro).
            4903, Rue Sherbrooke Ouest
            Westmount, QC H3Z 1H2
            (514) 484-3541

            I think they are $8.99 a pkg.

              Not downtown, but I noticed these dogs at Yagel Bagel on St Jean in DDO over the weekend. There were 2 different sizes, I believe the price tag on one was $9.99.

              There's a Yagel Bagel in NDG too, so good bet they carry them too.

              1. re: ios94

                Just got back from Price Chopper in Plattsburgh last weekend and Hebrew National have a new Summer BBQ Pack 24 hot dogs for $9.99usd.Now that's a deal for the best HD in North America.

            2. Pretty sure I've seen them at Real Bagel on Queen Mary...

              1. The Hebrew National skinless hot dogs available in the US(used by Five Guys Burgers), are they much better than the Hebrew National hot dog franks available in Montreal?

                1. re: BLM

                  Why would they be any different? As far as I can tell, Hebrew National dogs available in Montreal are a grey market product "imported" from the US for the local kosher market.

                  1. re: SnackHappy

                    There's different version of the Hebrew National hot dog franks. The best one are the ones with natural casing and/or skinless(both still unavailable in Canada to my knowledge). I don't think the ones in Montreal are grey market(also appeared at same time in Toronto market, & Hebrew National at that time proclaimed their hot dogs were now available in Canada).

                    1. re: BLM

                      I think you might be confusing them with Nathan's Famous which have recently become available in Canada.

                      1. re: SnackHappy

                        Yes, you're right I got confused with Nathan's Famous. Sorry.
