Inexpensive place to buy dulse in Toronto

I bought my first bag, and I'm addicted. It tastes a lot like extruded Vegemite, which is going to be an instant turn off for a lot of readers.

However, I'm looking for an inexpensive source. This stuff goes for like $5 for a tiny bag! Is there anywhere I can get it in bulk?

  1. According to my dulce loving friends the only decent dulce
    Is fresh from Grand Manan. Apparently the source is key. In their world inexpensive and dulce do not go together. I hate the stuff.

      Given that I described it as extruded leathery Vegemite, I think I can understand why you might hate the stuff :)

    2. Experiment with dried seaweed at P.A.T. (4 locations).
      Something will be close to dulse and reasonable.

        It's really not the same. Kombu and wakame both taste very different.

      2. Maine Coast Sea Vegetables. Quality is good. I usually buy a a 1 lb. bag and a 2 oz. of the applewood smoked.
