Buy Bulk Melting Wafers Online In Canada

by Samantha
(CANADA)

Please help. I am run ragged trying to find where to buy bulk melting wafers online IN CANADA.



Google is over run by US company pages... and/or US companies that DO ship to Canada, but the added taxes, shipping and the fact that it takes up to 3 WEEKS to deliver is crazy. If I see one more ad for bulkfoods.com I think I'll go mad.


All I want is to pay less that ~$1/100g... there are 2.2lbs in 1000g.... correct my math (I am bad at it) but that is what? 0.22 lbs per 100g.


a 5lb bag of Merckens white wafers is priced at roughly $5-$6USD. So I have to convert dollars based on the rate the day the order goes through... add in any extra customs duties and pay extra on shipping.


Anyone buy bulk here in the great white north? Looking mostly for white melting wafers.


Please?






Hi Samantha,

I can see your dilemma. I've just spent 30 minutes trying to locate a place to buy bulk melting wafers online in Canada without any success. In fact, I couldn't even find a place to buy them in small amounts!


I even checked eBay Canada since you can often find things on eBay even when you can't locate it otherwise. No such luck. All the suppliers listed there for the white chocolate wafers were US sellers.


Just out of curiosity, did you check with Candyland Crafts to see how much they charge to ship to Canada and how long it would take? They may be able to beat some of the other sellers you've investigated on shipping costs, but they charge $19.75 for a 5 lb. bag of wafers (That works out to be .8 cents per 100 grams before shipping).


If you can get 5 lbs. for $6.00 somewhere as you mentioned, that's only about .27 cents US per 100 grams. How much are they asking for shipping? It seems like that would be your best option if you are trying to keep your costs under $1 per 100 grams.


Well, hopefully someone from Canada will be able to come riding to the rescue and provide you with a local supplier. Surely there IS one in Canada?


Best of luck!

merckens wafers NEW
by:

I live in Saskatchewan and get mine at bulk barn too. If buying a different brand of wafer than Merckens, you might want to buy just a few and do a taste test. They may look the same, but some of them are pretty awful tasting. I have found merckens preferable to all the other wafers. I know the Co-op food store sells wafers as well but I think they might be Foleys. Are the wafers at Superstore really Merckens? I don't know for sure, but think they might be another brand.

Bulk chocolate wafers NEW

I live in Alberta and buy my wafers at Bulk Barn. However if anyone knows where I can get sugar free ones that would be awesome, as Bulk Barn stores near me have stopped carrying them.

Superstores NEW

I often purchase mine at Superstore in their bulk candy section. Often cheaper than the Bulk Barn.

You can find Merken' chocolate at Bulk Barn for cheap plus they have sale coupons every few weeks or Michael's stores has other candy melts and they have sale coupons every week ! Do not order from the U.S. Because customs and duty will get you above and beyond your shipping fee

The bulk barn has colored wafers for about $12.99 a kilo, and chocolate compound wafers for $6.18 a kilo.
Michaels craft store has 397g bags for 4.99, but if you use one of thier 40% off coupons it's only $2.99 a bag.
