ISO pomegranate molasses - etobicoke

  1. I can't imagine that Pasquale Bros. wouldn't have it: http://pasqualebros.com/
    Likely to be found cheaper at No Frills and so on, though, if they do carry it. I'd check the international-foods section, if there is one, or call and ask someone in the grocery dept.

    1. NoFrills often have a small Middle Eastern section with vine leaves, tahini, orange and rose water, couscous, etc. That's usually where to find it. "Cedar" brand is probably the most common.

      1. alrighty, i'll check my local no frills tonight (not holding my breath because i'm normally disappointed when i go there looking for something specific).

        tks for the pasquale bros tip ... i never even thought of that!

        1. Try any Punjabi Grocery Store or you can make your own with pomegranate juice which is a bit of a pain because you have to boil down the pomegranate juice until it is syrupy.

            Do you know of any Punjabi grocery stores in Etobicoke? I'm relatively new to the area, still.

              http://www.mastindia.com/toronto/t_gr... is a listing of Indian grocery stores in Mississauga etc. There is also the Indian Punjabi Bazaar which has several locations. I am not from your area so I recommend you call first. The one I shop at in Hamilton has the most helpful staff and will even order stuff in if enough people request it.

          2. i tried the no frills @ renforth/rathburn and the fresh/wild @ king/spadina last night ... 0/2. i'll try pasquale ... when i can get out of the office one day before 4:30 pm...

              I can put you in touch with a "definite" source in Mississauga if that's not too far, though I suspect it is.

                nope ... mississauga is not to far. i work in mississauga. i might actually be heading to planet organic tonight (for another product).

                1. re: lilaki

                  OK, then make a trip to the all-but-invisible Town&Country Market hidden behind the Shell station at Hurontario+Fairview Rd., just south of Central Pkwy. Great Lebanese grocer packed with nice stuff. Try it sometime.

                    tks for the tip ... next time i'm in the area, i'll check it out! i'll try pasquale bros this friday as i'm off work and it's much closer.
