Nathan's Dill Pickles

xcalibur2572 Nov 3, 2011 02:46 AM


I am starting my Christmas gift shopping early as I have a family member who is tough to buy for. He has mentioned his love for Nathan's pickles, which are only available in the US. Being in Edmonton, I don't get down to the US often.

Does anyone know if there is anywhere in Canada that imports Nathan's food products? I know we can get Nathan's hot dogs at Soda Jerks. So, there is a way to do it, but I am not sure where to look.

Any advice would be appreciated.

    There is a Nathan's Hot Dog restaurant on the southside of Airdrie but I have never been in it (too busy going to Five Guys in the same strip mall). Not sure if they carry food products beyond their restaurant service.

      I've been to that Nathans. There weren't pickles for sale beyond what you could order with your meal. Sorry. Nathan's pickles might be something you have to order online--if you post your question on General Topics you'll reach a wider group of hounds who might be able to point you to a source.

        I looked around nathansfamous.com, but I didn't see a place to order food stuffs aside from hot dogs. Could you provide a link?

          I see what you mean - that's strange. I e-mailed them to see if you can order their pickles online. I'll see if I get a response. Otherwise, there is a phone number listed to call: 1-800 925-2416.

            I got a reply from Nathan's. They suggested that I contact Hermann’s Pickles (877.674.255) out of Ohio to see if they ship to Canada. Thanks all for your advice. The hunt continues...

              The latest is that they do ship UPS. I need to contact customer service at the factory to see if they can ship to Canada. (800) 245 2696 8 AM - 3 PM M-F ET. More to come..
