Newfoundland Savoury

sushigirl67 Oct 6, 2011 06:54 PM

Does anyone know where I can buy some Newfoundland savoury in Calgary? The Superstore use to carry it, but I have not been able to find it there in months. It was called Mt. Scio Farm Pure Savoury.

    Thank you all...I was able to find it at Sobey's in the NE only. If anyone needs to buy a large amount you can get it at Elite International Foods.

      Does Elite sell retail?

      Newfie here! I usually stock up when I go home but I know I've seen it for sale up here.

      I believe I saw it at Giant Tiger (corner of Elbow & Southland Dr SW). I know they carry a few Purity products, which struck me as strange. I live close to there... I'll check this weekend when I visit the Planet Organic next door and edit this response to confirm.

      Have you tried any Sobey's stores? I've found Purity cookies, candy & syrup there before. Also, one of my friends on Facebook just posted that he found salt beef at Co-op on Blackfoot so those are some "maybe" stores for savoury.

              Brulee bakery on 11th Ave SW makes a really good spice bar that's similiar to soft molasses cookies. Not the same as a Newfie cookie but still good.

          Can't seem to edit my reply above... Just wanted to say that Giant Tiger did not have Mt Scio savoury but they did have a good selection of Purity candy, cookies and even Hard Bread.
