Finding Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses in Toronto/GTA area?

I have been on a hunt the past week or so to find Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses! I was able to buy some last year at Wal-Mart no problem, but this year has proved to be a bit of a challenge. My Christmas baking is not going to be the same without them!

Can any Chowhounders help and mention any places you've seen them? I've provided a pic of the packaging.

Thanks in advance!

  1. I just saw a giant bin of them at a Bulk Barn in Hamilton. If you call your local franchise, they can tell you if they have them.

    1. I just wanted to bump this thread - I didn't succeed in finding them last year (2011) and I'm hunting for them early this year (2012). So far, no luck at Loblaws, Canadian Tire, Metro, or Sobey's. Has anyone been able to find them?

          I plan on checking there this week and will report back.

          Thecupcakegal - did you end up finding any at Bulk Barn in 2011?

            emeats: I ended up stocking up when I saw them at a Shoppers Drug Mart downtown. So far this year, I haven't seen them though. I will be hunting for them soon, and hopefully will check out a few Shoppers again!

      1. Most Shopper's Drug Mart will have them.

          I've been to 3 locations (Spadina and Bloor, King and John, and Yonge and Wellesley) and none have the candy cane kisses. All have the same display that has the kisses, hugs, and a couple other variations (caramel/almond/cookies and cream) - but no candy cane ones. If you come across a location that has them, please post it here!

            I work at Hospital for Sick Children. I saw candy cane kisses in the Shopper's in my hospital. I've never had candy cane kisses before, maybe I'll give it a try!

              That's really close to my work, I'll check it out! Thank you!

                Stopped by after work and picked up 4 bags, thank you!! They are on sale for $2.99 and they seemed to have several cases worth of bags, in case anyone else is looking!

                Just purchased some at Eglinton/Mount Pleasant Shopper's. On sale for 2.99. They did not have a lot on the shelf.
