So many times when replying to an eGullet thread, I have been able to state with joy and pride, that WE in east central Ontario have this wonderful dairy, Reid's recently changed to Qwickerts, where we could buy dairy products which contained...gasp...dairy ingredients! And at reasonable prices. It was a treat to shop there. And we did. At least once a week. And indeed, only last on Monday afternoon. And we don't even live in the city.
No more. As of today, all the Qwickert stores have closed on account of bankruptcy and I am writing this short obit because I am very, very sad.
Most of all I will miss the whipping/heavy cream. It contained no sugar or other things which don't belong in this dairy product and it came in litres (sort of like quarts).
