Does anyone know is this brand of soup is available in Montreal. I would love to try it but have not seen it anywhere. Thanks

    About 3 years ago I went on a search for Progresso in Montreal and found nothing. Even more disheartening, at the time, I couldn't locate it anywhere in all of Canada. This may have changed but just wanted to let you know you might be on a futile search.

      I have never seen it here, and I live in la Petite Italie. Have not seen in St-LĂ©onard either, and not even remaindered anywhere.

      General Mills doesn't distribute/sell the Progresso brand of Soups in Canada.

      Best thing would be to head to plattsburgh and buy some over there.

        Save 20 minutes and stop in Champlain. While in the aisle, pick up a couple cans of Snows clam chowder and Rotel diced tomato with chile. You can also get some skin-on haddock fillets and Snyder of Hanover jalapeno pretzels. If feeling peckish, you can throw a pack of those day-glow red Glazier hot dogs in the cart...but I'm just saying.

          Hmmm, you're no amateur, LOL. Is the Snow's chowder very different from other canned brands?

            Not especially. Its maybe a tad better than the Campbells regular brand. I just mentioned it as you cant buy it in Canada. Plus I was tickled when driving off the Lewes-Cape May ferry a few years ago to find the road passes right through the Snows plant in Cape May, New Jersey.

        I am fairly sure that "Primo" soups are re-labelled Progresso.

          Primo soups are made by Baxters in Saint-Hyacinthe.
