I discovered Bulk Barn when I was browsing the streets of Toronto while visiting an unfamiliar neighborhood, got very hungry but didn’t have enough time to sit down for a proper dinner. The pictures of nuts, snacks and candy in Bulk Barn window instantly attracted me. Later I discovered that Bulk Barns are located all over Toronto. My favorite location is just next to Bathurst TTC Station.
I love trying new food but I am never sure if I will like them. That’s why large pre-packaged portions that are sold in regular stores rarely work for me. In Bulk Barn I have a luxury of getting as much or as little of any snacks as I want. That’s my kind of store!
They have dozens of types of candy, nuts, snack mixes as well as teas and coffees. I often even buy organic cleaning products and cosmetics there. Bulk Barn is also great for picking out spices for dishes of international cuisine. Anais and cardamom are my favorites. I can always get just the needed amount and avoid wasting any food.
The best part of visiting Bulk Barn is that you can taste the produce before you commit to buying it! Bulk Barn also has food staples like various kinds of pasta and grains. Whenever I am not feeling like cooking a complicated meal I just pick up spinach flavored pasta and lentils and the dinner is ready!
