DTW - Colman's mustard?

berkleybabe Nov 18, 2011 06:31 PM

Have been looking for Colman's dried mustard and can't seem to find. Even Holiday Market. Anybody see this lately? If so, where...

    If you can't find it in a nearby store, Amazon has it.

      bb, have you tried Hiller's?

      Not OUR Berkley Hiller's, but the ones in Commerce/W Bloomfield/Plymouth that make me sad for our quirky little local one...(that said, I LOVE our odd little Hillers!)

        Actually, I did see it yesterday at Hiller's in Berkley. Check the British food "section", aka a few shelves in the ethnic area, on the bottom shelf.

        Also saw it at Nino Salvaggio's in Troy.

          Thanks! I'll check it out.

        Papa Joe's definitely has it. It is by the liquid Grey Poupon mustard, rather than by the powder spices (be sure to check the expiration date of the can you buy). I thought Meijer had it as well, maybe in the "ethnic" English section--but I don't know that for a fact.

          VTB, checked the RO Meijer this week and no Colman's, have checked over the last couple months and no go. I'll check out Papa Joe's. And, yes we did get Penzey's powder, but it's just not Colman's.

            Makes no sense why the RO store wouldn't carry it - I did see it at the Meijer on Hall rd (Shelby Twp) this past weekend - 4 oz tin for $6.79.

          Yeah, I've definitely seen it in the "international" food aisle at Meijer's and other stores.

          If it doesn't have to be Colman's, they have mustard powder at Penzey's (regular & hot), and also carry it at Bulk Food Warehouse (Clinton Twp & SCS).

          I found a tin of Colman's in my cupboard that has what looks like a Farmer Jack price sticker on it; so, what do you think the shelf life is of dried mustard? My tin's obviously pretty old, with no expiration date on it.

            Thanks, dog, but we've done alternative. This is one of those non-negotiable deals. Colman's, please.

              There's just no compromising on certain things, is there? We *all* have these non-negotiables that others might roll their eyes at, and we'll never apologize for. I totally understand this. Good luck, BB, and if I see any, I'll let you know!

              Colman's is not just "regular or hot," it's a blend.

                Babe, I'm stunned! I can't live without my Colman's (no ham shall be served without it) and have had no problem finding it at Meijer's or Holiday Market in Canton. I'll do a recon tomorrow and report back.
