Cash & Carry - 405 Ohio Street (Exit 254)
Davinci syrups (many flavors under $4.00 eachgalore, And cheap.

Safeway -8071 GUIDE MERIDIAN ROAD LYNDEN WA 98264
Hood Calorie (was Carb) Countdown Milk, Dannon low-carb yogurt, Crystal light drinks (much more flavors in US including decaf iced tea, and lemonade in individual packets).

My favorite place is a bit further on (just north of Everitt):

Super Walmart - Hood Milk (regular, chocolate and low-fat), Dannon yogurt, cans of sugar-free whipped cream,, other Crystal light drink flavors and other ugar-free drink powders, sugar-free sweet pickles.

I used to buy the Hershey 1-gram sugar chocolates with erythritol, but I think they are not discontinued (nobody has had them the last few times I went down.)

I go down regularly just for the Hood milk, now that Dairyland has stopped making their low-carb milk.

Hope that helps

Also Fred Myers sells Dreamfields Pasta. This is by far the best pasta on the market

I will also be heading down to Blaine/Bellingham in the next week... does anyone know if the advice in this thread is current?

I am specifically seeking Dreamfields Pasta, Davinci syrups, and low carb wraps.

Thanks in advance.

Last time I was in bellingham (feb.), the Cash & Carry ~ 405 Ohio Street still had an incredible selection of davinci, torani and oscar's SF syrups, all really cheap (maybe around $4 US now).

I have just come back from Bellingham and found this Cash and Carry store. Thanks so much for telling us about it. I couldn't believe the variety of flavours of the sugar free syrups. They were $3.63 US for the same size bottle that I've been paying $16.00 online! I bought 12 flavours that I haven't tried.

Fred Meyer is my store of choice now as it is the only place I know which carries the Hood milk. When I was there a couple of weeks ago, it looked like the chocolate was no longer available, but there was plenty of the 2%. I also like to get the Dannon sugar-free yougurt.

It would be great to try the low carb eggnog, Unitydkn. I would appreciate it if you would post and let us know if it is being carried this year. Also, do you know of any stores that carry the Land O Lakes sugar free whipped cream in the can?

Thanks.

Thanks, unitydkn.

I have only been to the one on Bakerview Rd. as it is the closest one to Vancouver. I'm hoping that if your store has it, then this one will also. If it doesn't, I will continue down I5 to Lakeway Dr.

I am from Seattle but have lived in Vancouver the past few years.. near Vancouver anyway..Sunshine Coast.

Anyway, Fred Meyer and Target are the two places I go to when I cross the border every single time. Target not for low carb stuff , just general shopping. If you have kids, it is awesome.

My other favourite store is Trader Joes and I heard they have one in Bellingham now off State Street. Lots of good stuff there. Too much to write out, just go !

Those are the three stores I miss most since moving NOB.

I cross every month or so and never fail to hit all three.

Tina
