Where to buy chestnut puree


Recommended Posts

hellokitty -- for some reason i am thinking i even saw it sitting on a Provigo shelf :shock: and the canned kind as u mention, i think imported from france. there were marrons glaces and the puree. so u may not need to venture far after all. and for sure u can get them on Laurier, as mentioned upthread.

they also have the at Vieille Europe on St-Laurent, just south of St-Cuthbert, and Maison du Roti, Mount Royal just east of Papineau. it says "puree de marrons" on the can, and the label is this blue/brown art nouveau kind of swirly motif... i see them in a lot of places...
