Garlic Bologna

Since Walmart and Publix stores quit selling garlic bologna, does anyone know where I can find it In Kissimmee, Fl. (Orlando, Fl., area. I was telling someone about how we used to eat it all the time.

  1. I could've sworn I've seen Boar's Head garlic bologna at Publix delis, but I could be wrong.

    You should call Polonia, the wonderful Polish restaurant in Longwood that sells several authentic Polish sausages and other cured meats and provisions:
    They may have it, or they'd know who would.

    1. When I was buying Bologna I'd look for good Garlic Bologna, but since I've been going to the Italian markets and buying Daniele Mortadella sliced real thin, I haven't thought about bologna since... It's full flavor and garlicky, along with containing the occasional sliced pistachio or peppercorn... It's what I always hoped the garlic bologna would taste like... I get it at Cacciatore Brothers in Tampa... About $5.00 a pound...

      1. Boars Head does have a Garlic Bologna as well as a fine Mortadella. Boars Head brand and Mortadella are a must try if you have not. A lady asked me what Mortadella was, I replied "The Rolls Royce of bologna"

          Publix no longer sells garlic bologna. Their service dept. rep told me the sale of garlic bologna had dropped to where they were selling on an average of 10 pounds a week per store. so, with the low sales, they decided to quit carrying it in stores.

        2. So sad that Publix quit producing their house brand garlic bologna... I have been delivering to Publix DCs for years including their home office there in Lakeland where these products are produced. This was the drawing card for me at their stores.... I so loved how it made the whole fridge smell so WONDERFUL!! Since they stopped carrying that I have no real reason to visit their retail stores any longer. I know that sounds extreme... but the Boars Head that is mentioned here doesn't hold a candle.. I'll just have to resort to creating my own.. The Mortadella is a great alternative..
