Where in town can I buy Torani syrups, especially Orgeat?

    Can't speak to that specific flavor, but Cost Plus World Market usually has a pretty comprehensive selection of the Torani syrups.

      Here in CA I pick up Torani syrups at Cost Plus World Market, Smart & Final, and BevMo. BevMo is 2x the price of the other 2 places. I always have multiple fruit flavors around. A few pumps help me to drink more water. :) Mint & "nut" flavors for espresso drinks, and orgeat for MAI TAI'S!

        The nearest BevMo is 1250+ miles away from this regional board.

          They do mail order.

        Lunds carries a few of the more "vanilla" flavors (including vanilla, I believe). We buy raspberry syrup there. Haven't seen orgeat, but will see if they have it. I know they have at least one nut flavor, but think it was hazelnut.

          Kowalski's on Grand Avenue, too. It's in the front of the store.

          I was at the World Market in Roseville a couple weeks ago and they had Orgeat then.

            Hmm. Went up to the Cost Plus in Roseville. Yes, they have a lot of Torani syrups, but no Orgeat. They had something called Almond Roca, which looked interesting but it was sugar-free so I passed. (I did pick up a bottle of Torani Raspberry so it wasn't a wasted trip.) Guess I'll try Kowalski's.

              Call first to make sure they have orgeat. Better safe than sorry!

                Should I ask them where's the orgeat?

              Where's the Orgeat? Not at Kowalski's on Grand. They have other small bottles of Torani, but not as big a selection as World Market. So, I am still looking...

                If you don't require the Torani brand, you can find orgeat at well-stocked liquor stores around town. I've bought it at Surdyk's. And it's lovely stuff - well worth seeking out!
