    I am pretty sure Tourtiere Australienne stocks it, but it could be the Australian version not the UK version, which might taste different.

      Most Chinese grocery stores sell it.

        Thanks for your info. Aside from Chinatown do you know of any in NDG?

          Bramble House on Donegani in Pointe Claire sells all kinds of goods from the UK, including Ribena.

              I hunted around for Ribena a few times and was surprised they didn't have it Marché Hawai. Sometimes I get a French cassis syrup which is pretty similar and easier to find. I can get it at Co'pain d'Abord, for example. The brand I have at the moment is William.

                I think the OP is looking for Ribena's beverages, not the syrup.

            Just a tip - there are quite a few British products available in some of the deps in the Parc Ex area. A Sri Lankan dep there is my source for Marmite and Hobnobs and I've seen Ribena there (and the classic lime cordial, I forget the brand name but it's the old school one)

                Can you give me the nearest street intersection of the Parc Ex's Sri Lankan dep.

                  St Laurent x Jean Talon - it's a short way west along Jean Talon from the intersection (less than a block IIRC). Very tiny, easy to miss.
