I would think it would be available almost anywhere, at any grocery store.  Heck, Hershey's even makes some.

Fry's is "Dutched". It may not have the colour but if you read the label, you'll notice the wording. You may also find Droeste in grocery stores.
Just to be sure, Fry's is the stuff in the yellow can?

Yes,it's in the yellow can,and I have read it.Interesting that the ingredients lists sodium bi,which is supposed to cut the acidity in "regular" cocoa,and yet ,looking at the recipe  for fudgy  brownies on the can,it calls for baking powder which is supposed to be used with "dutched"Oh,la dee da.Think I'll try the Bulk Barn idea.Thanks.

That analysis doesn't fly.

Bulk Barn sells the best cocoa I've found--and only at this time of year. It's the Ruddy Red, and costs at least double the regular stuff. I stock up every year--but never buy enough.

Thank you,I'll try that.Do you know if it's "dutched"

I've always assumed that it is. It tastes far superior in any recipes I make, costs much more, and is a nice "dirt" colour rather than the terracotta colour of the cheaper cocoa.

My tried-and-true method is keeping it in the bag, tossed in the cupboard :)

Are you looking in my cupboards?  I actually bought 5 lbs of dutched cocoa from http://www.bulkfoods.com/.  Well, upon looking, maybe not from there, but I've bought other things from them.  :)  I now have it in manageable quantities in food saver bags, stacked with peanuts, also in food saver bags on top of them. (This is the first time I've had a pantry, can you tell?)   The working bag is indeed in the baking box with other cocoa's stacked upon the bags.

You and I have the same outlook about baking supplies (I'm the one who bought 30 lbs of chocolate when it was on sale, and who drags home Plugra and Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips on every plane ride). I have a baking cupboard upstairs and two more storage areas downstairs. I never understand when people say they don't have the ingredients to bake :)


Your toffee thread has me thinking I'll try some of them. The Caramel Chews from RLB's Xmas book are cooling on the counter right now. Yum.

Toffee is cool to make because you can play aroung with the additions.  I also used dark corn syrup and brown sugar corn syrup.  I put so many peanut pieces on one that I wasn't sure it would meld together, but it did.  That pan is specifically for the guy that helps me with my home computer and lends me DVD's all year.  I didn't try the dried fruit that was mentioned in another thread, but the weeks not over yet.
