    Default Bulk price of beef boullion at Superstore?

    Anyone know offhand how much beef boullion in the bulk section of Real Canadian Superstore is per 100g? I'm trying to calculate the cost for my homemade dry onion soup mix.

    (Btw, 49.5g = 1/3c of beef bouillion).

    Do you still have a bulk section in the Superstore? Here they have a separate store (Bulk Barn), but it is part of the whole Loblaw's conglomerate so maybe the price is comparable. I bought beef stock last year and don't seem to have a record of the price, but it wasn't cheap (actually the Bulk Barn is more expensive for just about everything except spices and yeast). I do remember that the beef stock was about the same price as the dry onion soup mix (maybe even more). I bought enough to fill an empty instant coffee jar (maxwell house regular size) and it was about $6.

    Yeah the Superstore near my house has a really great bulk section. It's split into three sections and sits between the produce and bakery area:

    Section one - holiday candies
    Section two - nuts (pistachios, peanuts, etc)
    Section three - baking goods, spices, regular candies, etc.

    They have things like cheese powder (for macaroni and cheese), flour, wheat flour, etc.

    I actually found Costco to have the cheapest bulk bouillon. BUT the containers are like 2 litres of the stuff. Lasted me for years!

    I just wish you didn't have to pay a fee to go to Costco. That'd make it the ultimate place to get all your stuff, imho.
