Kraft Cheese in a Blue Tin/Can (made in Saudi Arabia or Middle East)

Does anyone know where I can find this in Toronto? Etobicoke?

    If this is what you're looking for I think your best bet would be to order it online.

      Most Middle-Eastern grocery stores carry this. Would call a few to see if they have it.

      Around Hurontario/Dundas there are a few. Not too sure about Etobicoke. And in the East end the 'Lawrence of Arabia' strip has a few stores that will carry them. (Lawrence/Warden)

        It is made in the Middle East, although it used to be a product of Kraft Australia. I had a roommate in University from Mauritius, and he always had some at start of term.

        I definitely saw it last week by the checkout in the Asian supermarket at 3701 Lawrence Ave. E. - there is a Winners and a Value Village store in the same plaza.

          I had a roommate years ago who had this as well. She was from Australia and I've never seen it in any of my usual grocery stores since. I may have to try to track some down just for a little walk down memory lane.

            ok can someone fill me in on what this is, Im kinda curious. When I think Kraft I think either processed cheese slices or Kraft Dinner. Is this some kind of Processed cheese in a can? Perhaps full or KD powder cheese? Or is it just a little circle of cheese?

            I NEED to know. (and im not gonna google, Ill come back for my answers:)

              It's processed and unremarkable other than the fact it's cheese in a can.

                so its basically the same cheese that we find in Kraft Singles? but in a can shape?

                This intrigues me...

                If this is so, I bet it would be great to melt the cheese so you can pour it on a hot dog or hamburger or whatever else that cheese would work with...

                  I have tried to melt this cheese and from what I recall it does not melt well. This was a number of years ago so hence my reply.

            FYI - saw this at Sunny Food Mart yesterday. 747 Don Mills Rd. It was at an endcap directly in front of the customer service. They even had a few other brands on the other side of the store near the honey section.

            I think a lot of Sri Lankan grocers carry this too. I think they call it 'Australian cheese'.
