Dulce de leche in Edmonton?

  • 7

I was recently in the American South where I purchased a squeeze-bottle of dulce de leche, and after many delicious breakfasts, the bottle is now empty. Can I buy it here? I know about "making" my own by boiling a can of condensed milk, but I would much rather buy it already made. Has anyone seen it on a shelf somewhere?

  1. In the USA I've bought this (cajeta) from the hispanic food section of an ordinary Walmart.

    1. About 35 years ago, I was a kid, I remember it as being sold as "Milk Caramel" in the States. You might try looking for that--though that name seems to have been replaced by "Dulce de Leche." You could also look for the French "Douce de Lait" (I believe that's the name in French)--especially since you might have more French things in Canada, well Quebecois at least.

      1. you can get PC brand dulce de leche at Superstore in Calgary, so probably in Edmonton too. It manages to hit the spot. I think it 's usually by the jams.

        1. Argentinean dulce de leche is available at the Italian Centre and at the Latin American grocery Paraiso Tropical 9136-118 Ave . The Mexican version, cajeta, is also carried by Paraiso Tropical

          1. Thanks everyone!

              Can also get a few different brands at Tienda Latina/Argyll Foods on Argyll & 99 St

            2. The Argentinian dulce de leche at the Italian Centre is quite good, but Bonne Maman also has 'confiture de lait' (milk jam) that is often next to the jams. Haven't tried it, though.
