Anyone know where to get fresh Tellicherries bulk in metro Halifax? I used to get them at a neat little Japanese-Godiva store on Dresden which closed some time ago. Then at the Atlantic Superstore until they drastically cut their selection of gourmet items, now they only carry them in those ridiculous disposable grinder jars. Pete's Frootique does the grinders too. Have tried Planet Organic and they do have whimpy little 55g bottles of Extra Bold from Cape Herb which are decidedly neither bold nor fresh. I suspect Bulk Barn would be no better. i'm probably overlooking the obvious.....

    I should have said that I did indeed get the tellicherries from Costas and they are the best I've found. Have to say I have had the Kirkland ones from Costco in the past and they are either old or just inferior.

        any one in HRM who likes spices needs to get on this mailing lis "costas at halavrezos dot ca"

        anyway Costas has a stand at the old Farmers Market on Saturdays and has the best Tellicherry by a mile

          Costco has them. I have a Kirkland 399g container in my pantry; not sure what it cost but I recall thinking it was a great price.

            Thanks so much, I'll get someone to snag some for me. Seems I've been signed on since I posted this initially!
