    Mom and dad went fishing in Northern Sask last summer (they are from Sask) and there was a group of American guys there and they shared a meal together, they brought grits which my parents loved. Can't buy them anywhere around here....and we love cornbread and I would love to change it up and make blue corn bread. I have found a couple of places on line but shipping to Canada is outrageous.

    Anyone know a distributor in Canada???

    Thanks a bunch.

    I don't know of a distributor, but I've seen corn bread mixes at Loblaws.

    Grits....never seen them around here. I'm heading to National Grocers today, I'll take a look icon_biggrin.gif

    I don't have a Loblaws here, I have Real Canadian Superstore which is the same family I think. I have looked but I havent asked. Shipping is almost $30 from one site and over $40 for another...I wish Amazon.ca had the same products as Amazon.com. I was reading that I could find a Italian market and they might have a course polenta...Edmonton is 2 hours for us and we don't get in often.

    I am going to phone Nutters Bulk foods and see if they have it, they didnt last time I asked but they might be able to get it in for me but I would probably half to order a case of it.

    Thanks.

    Do you have a Bulk Barn there? They may have it too.


    If I find some I'll let you know. I can pick it up and send to you if you'd like, it can't cost all that much to send from Ontario, could it?

    There is a new Bulk Barn on the south end of Edmonton. We are planning a girls shopping weekend there in March so I can hit it then or my cousin lives on the south and I can get her to stop.

    Thank you so much for the offer if I can't find them I might take you up on the offer. We have nothing here ...we are a city but the shopping and what we have doesnt amount to much, just got a Winners and a Future Shop just before Xmas this year.

    Bob's Red Mill makes a medium grind blue cornmeal, they do carry these products at our Super store, and I have also seen them in health food stores, having said that I have never looked for blue cornmeal icon_exclaim.gif . Check out any Mexican market/store if you have one in Edmonton..Good luck in your search!!

    I will have to ask a friend or cousin if they know where there is a Mexican Market in Edmonton. We don't get into the city often and my husband is adventurous to go find something like that. I will check Superstore today after work and call Nutter's they might be able to get it in.

    I live very close to the Niagara Falls/Buffalo NY border and often go over to pick up groceries. It seems that Wegmens website shows they have the Quaker grits for $1.89 in a 24oz size. Can't seem to find out anything about blue cornmeal but you never know. I would have no problem with shipping it out to you. Should be going over in the next couple weekends I think.

    Hi KennKonn- I was just surfing the site and stopped in here. My DH is Canadian and I come by here once in awhile. I just wondered if you were ever able to get either grits or the blue cornmeal? I would be willing to price out what the shipping cost would be to send you some and let you know. You can answer here or z-mail me.

    Aww thanks for the offer. I did find grits! I a friend of mine is looking in the city for blue cornmeal for me. She knows of a good little Mexican market in Edmonton and said she will check it out for me. Our local bulk foods had Bob's Red Mill corn grits much to my amusement and shock. Mom and I both bought two bags each. If we keep buying it they will keep bringing it in. They are going to see if they can order in blue cornmeal too...its available through Bob's but if I am the only one who wants it they arent going to order it unless I will take a case.

    Thanks again.

    Oh I'm glad you were able to find what you were looking for! I was eyeing the grits in the supermarket this morning, just in case! Happy eating!

    Glad you found the grits, it's one of my favourite dishes from the US. I know Superstore sells Bob's Red Mill too, so you may be able to get them to order in both the grits and the blue cornmeal, and it'll likely be a lot cheaper than Nutters. I've seen both at the Airdrie Superstore so it may be worth a shot to talk to the manager there icon_smile.gif. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

    Mom's Nutrition Centre in Saskatoon sells Bobs Red Mill Corn Grits. Phone 306-652-1118 I bought a bag there recently. If you can find them at Superstore (in the health/organic food section) I am sure they are a lot cheaper. Sorry I can't remember what I paid for them. I have never looked for the blue cornmeal here, but they may have it as well.

    I buy cornmeal from the regular chain grocers, but I'm not sure where to get blue either. The grits I have seen sold for a few years now in pharmacy (perhaps health food) sections like at Wal-Mart. Here in Canada, the preference is "cream of wheat" which is similar to grits. You can get that at any grocery store around the oats, etc. Good luck.
