Bulk Food Dilemma

Abbeshay | Aug 19, 2012 04:04 AM

Does anyone else know what I mean when I say that I like to shop for baking items at Bulk Barn but I find that some of the items become permeated with a particular odor of the store, I guess. This is not gross or anything, just off-putting. I had recently bought some dried cherries which were moist and plump but when I tasted some after getting home, they had a weird background flavour that made me feel like I was back in the store. Luckily, the cherries were just fine after I used them in a baked cookie recipe, but I is a little annoying because I've bought chocolate, rainbow sprinkles etc. and they had a weird taste as well. Whole Foods bulk area is okay but a little off my beaten path and Ambrosia is just way too far to go for one or two items. Does anyone have a favorite bulk food place that they can recommend for when I get in the baking mood and need a few items.
