Where to buy Blood Sausage / Black Pudding?

I'm looking for twin city area retail shops that sell blood sausage and/or black pudding.

I've previously found kishka at Kramarczuk's, and while that's delicious I'm looking for some other varieties.

Any leads would be much appreciated.

  1. They used to have it at Christmas. I don't know if they have it now.

      The Scandinavian style that I've had in Seattle was distinctly sweet.

    2. You can buy blood sausage at Mackenthun's Meat & Deli in St. Bonifacius, MN.

      1. We've gotten blood sausage at Clancey's before and it was good. I know it is a "sometimes" thing for them as apparently their supply of blood is not constant so I would call before heading over there (unless you are okay with obtaining other delicious sausage instead if they are out - I like their mereguez and duck sausages too).

        1. If you want it made with beef blood, you can get it locally at the places mentioned. You can also order from Fraboni's in Hibbing, MN. If you want it made with pork blood, which is more traditional, I don't think you'll find any in Minnesota. I've ordered the pork blood type from Cleveland.
