    I would suggest trying a “high-end deli”. I used to work at the Budapest Deli (in Ottawa) and we sold cretons. Very popular item.

    We found one place in St Lawrence Market (after having repeatedly explain that Cretons are not Crutons), at a stall on the main floor south east corner (didn’t catch the name, weirdly enough). Sharkboy says they’re very good.
    The heat-print label had “CRETONS – QUEBEC – UNSPECIFIED” on it. Ha!
    Thanks for your help in this, Lex!

    I actually saw cretons at metro today. They were like totally hidden away at the end corner of the prepared meats section. I didn’t get them because they were almost expiring, but hopefully they will order another batch.

    @ToaruI’ve found them at the Metro myself, often expired or close.  This post went live in 2007 and creton are much more available in Toronto these days.  You can even find them occasionally on menus. 

    Thanks for weighing in Toaru!

    AlexaClark I see. It is quite rare to find them at Metro, they seem carry them infrequently and randomly. Metro Bloor & Spadina has cretons right now that expire April 26th or so tho. Finally getting a chance to try them again. I haven’t seen them anywhere else in Toronto myself.

    Creton is available at Longos and Loblaws in the deli section. At least here in Mississauga!
