Does anyone know of any stores that sell Clausssen Sauerkraut in SD North county? I think it is the best but can't find it anywhere.

      Not to derail you or anything, but I picked up some Stogsdill Sauerkraut at the farmers market in little italy.

      Pretty good. (Keep in mind though, I am not some kind of "Sauerkraut expert" or anything).

        IMO there are much better brands out there, easily obtainable.

        Bubbie's is my favorite, which can usually be found at Whole Foods or Sprouts/Henry's.

        Ba-Tampte is a close second, and can be found at the same stores.

        Kruegermann's is also excellent, and can be found at Tip Top Meats in Carlsbad.

          Do you like the sauerkraut from the Happy Pantry at various farmers markets?

            I haven't tried it. Good?

          As long as everyone else is trying to change your mind here is the sauerkraut tasting fro the San Francisco Chronicle FWIW.

              Thanks Wolfe, glad to read Claussens was followed bt Boars Head. I have an unopened package in my fridge, more likely to give it a try now. Surprised no one on this post mentioned BH.

              Personally, I can't stand Claussen sauerkraut, as it is too sour. For my taste, the best sauerkraut is Steinfeld's Wine Kraut, available at 99 cents stores.
