Where to buy single serving jam/honey?

Hi,

I am trying to find those single serving jam or honey packs that hotels/McDonalds use to serve for breakfast? Does anyone know where you can get it locally (GTA)? I tried costco but they don't seem to have them, and shipping is expense for smuckers online...

thanks.

Why? You are paying a premium for single serving...Honey will last for a long long time (the reason why it was used as a preservative many years ago).

I'm pretty sure I've seen them at Costco before and they were really closed to expiry date. Unles you consume like 5 packets a day, don't bother.

Maybe he's hosting some sort of party or gathering. Perhaps he is opening a bed and breakfast, or is a caterer.

I don't see a need for individual jam packets otherwise....

eg 1) take your own honey/jam from home and buy a toasted bagel from timmys. cuts costs since they charge for it and bagel is warm.

eg 2) wait until you are going to eat to spread it on bcuz doing it at home would make a mess in the bread bag

eg 3) i put honey in my tea, but sometimes dont have time to make it at home and have to buy from timmys. they charge for the honey.

True... but thats pretty ghetto.
It reminds me of the ghetto families that bring cheese to mcdonalds to make their own cheeseburgers.
This was back in the 90's when they didnt have those value pick menus... but they did have cheap plain hamburgers. lol

If you're going to bring your own honey and put it on the bagel yourself, you may as well take the extra 2 minutes to toast the bagel yourself and skip Timmy's all together.

My dad always wanted to buy them in small quantity so he could make his own toast with jam on it at work.

Yeah, it's for a breakfast meeting, I should have clarified...

Thanks for letting me know, do you know if there are any other stores? the wholesale club's location is pretty far from me (Markham)...

Costco doesn't have it, except for whipped butter or something, and I think I saw peanut butter as well...just no jam or honey
