Crema di Balsamico

Can anyone tell me where I can find Crema di Balsamico at retail in the Los Angeles area?
(Preferably Glendale, Burbank or Pasadena.)

    Did you look at Gelsons, Bristol or Whole Foods? They all carry it at the Beverly Hills locations.

      Hello, Wino49.
      I have found most balsamic vinegars to be too lame -- until I found Acetificio Emiliani, Crema Gastronomica Balsamic Cream. Originally, I purchased a bottle at the Cheese Shop of Beverly Hills; it was about $20 at the time. Then, I found it for about $7 at the Eagle Rock Italian Bakery:


      If this interests you, call ahead to see if they have it.

          Wino49, please do report back!
          We are on our 6th or 7th bottle of this particular one and I still like it a lot!
          Let me know what you think.
