Bulk food-Jonvince, Bulk Barn - who else?

Vinnie Vidimangi | Oct 17, 2011 06:46 AM

I go to either Jonvince Steeprock or Bulk Barn Steeles and Dufferin. I go back and forth after I get pissed off by the one or the other.

My complaints are poor quality, stale goods, and with Bulk Barn, comparatively overpriced and on some items by 75%.

As for pricing, Jonvince I think is at least 10% more expensive than it needs be, but they are the market leader and may be able to set price.

My favourite supplier is R.J. Hirt in Detroit. Excellent quality of everything and prices significantly lower than JonVince.

Any recommendations in Toronto in lieu of the one's to which I go?

Incidentally, Five Guys gets its peanuts from David Roberts. The peanuts are becoming increasingly lousy to the point that they are only for addicts like me. I don't know whether buyer or supplier are responsible for the quality.

Flash. The peanut and pecan brittle at Jonvince Steeprock are reasonably fresh now!
