Newfoundland Savoury

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.

    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.

        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.
