Another thing I'd like to mention to canadianSKA and all us vegans living in New West, Burnaby, or northern Surrey:
Today I just found out something I never knew before, and am quite excited about. There's an IGA supermarket in Columbia Square strip mall walking distance from the New Westminster Skytrain Station that has one of the best selections of vegan foods in a mainstream grocery store I've ever seen. They have Earth Balance margarine, Earth Balance whipped, Earth Balance shortening, Tofutti's Better Than Cream Cheese, Soy Delcious ice creams, So Good ice creams, organic chocolate ice cream sandwiches (Lil Buddies, I think was the name), a Terra Breads rack, Amy's cheeseless pizza, Amy's shepherd's pie,Tayo potato drink, various rice drinks in the non-refridgerated section, Tropical Source peanut butter chocolate chips, TastyBite ready-to-eat chana masala and lentils, Greek stuffed cabbage, Greek stuffed grape leaves, a creme caramel flan (which I'm not sure is vegan, since it contains lactoflavin, which can be animal-sourced). They just had so many vegan items that I don't see at other grocery stores; even at some of the other IGA locations.
I'm happy I've found this place, because before, whenever I wanted to buy some specialty vegan items after 6pm, I'd have to ride the skytrain all the way to Edmonds Station to go to Choices. New West Station is a couple stations closer to me.
