Where can I buy tins of Royal Dansk butter cookies in Toronto/Scarborough?

I can't find them anywhere. Loblaws and Metro don't seem to have them except during the holiday season. Are they available anywhere in Scarborough/Toronto? Thanks.

    I spotted them in Metro, the location in College Park. The actual Royal Dansk brand, in a round blue tin. Looks like they had 20 or more tins.

      Might be a bit far for you but saw them at B Trust Supermarket at Creditview and Burnamthorpe in Mississauga.

        No Frills at Victoria Park and Eglinton carry "Danish Devine" brand butter cookies in their reduced-to-clear-from-the-holidays section. Although not Royal Dansk, this brand does appear to come from some company in Denmark. They're in a blue tin. Don't get the Danish butter cookies in the red tins beside them, as they are from an Asian distribution company.

        If you really want Royal Dansk brand, perhaps you would find them in a European deli?

          I don't know if they are available year round, but I have most definitely seen them at Starsky (both locations - Dundas/Dixie and Dundas/Winston Churchill).

          They may only be a Christmas season delicacy, much like my very beloved Fazer Finlandia Fruit Jellies - we just stock up on these when they are avaialble.

            I think I've seen them in all the chinese supermarkets.

              Make sure they are the specific brand, the made in China ones don't have any butter and don't taste good to me.

                Most of the brands at the Chinese supermarkets are not the original/authentic ones. so you do need to check the label carefully. The colour of the tins are the same. I almost made the same mistake yesterday.
