Gross... but I remember reading that this does help.


But isn't canned pumpkin just pumpkin puree? Or do they come pre-mixed with sugar?

Giant Tiger has the Stokely brand. I just picked some up to make pumpkin pancakes. It's just pumpkin puree..no sugar.

Was it just pure pumpkin? At loblaws and metro they had Ed Smith brand however it was pumpkin filling (had salt, sugar, spices and some other stuff in it)

ED Smith makes both kinds. Make sure you read the label: they have pie filling and also pumpkin puree. The pumpkin puree is cheaper (about $1 cheaper than the pie filling) and the can is slightly larger. You can find this at Walmart, Longos, etc. Use it for soup...yummy!

Have you asked and they dont carry it? Or cant find it by looking? Asking this only because you will find it in with the vegetables, most are looking in with the pie fillings.
That's my 2cents worth

I asked and they both brought me to the pie filling ones. They had no clue about other kinds. I did look in the canned vegetable departments at both and saw nothing.

I've seen the ED Smith Pure Pumpkin at most Loblaws and Metro banner grocery stores, usually in the baking aisle where the pudding/jello/Lucky Whip packages are. Usually $3-4/can.

Exact same thing happened to me the one time I was looking for it at the Walmart on Steeles.

I use the same for my cats when they have "gastrointestinal issues". The tin is huge so I freeze the leftovers in small containers for future use. The consistency isn't quite the same after defrosting but as long as they eat it and it works, I don't care!
