  1. I think I've seen them at Akhavan. but Loblaws should carry them somewhere. I think my Mom used to use Bing cherries in syrup for her Black Forest stuff.

    At worst Akhavan will have frozen cherries and I'm sure there's a way to make your own syrup for them. I was thinking of making the same cake and that's the route I'll probably go because I was thinking it would be nice to do half sweet and half sour cherries.

    1. I may have also seen some at Milano's on St. Laurent, but I'm not 100% sure.

      1. La Vielle Europe on St Laurent has them.
