Where to Find T Discs for Tassimo in Canada
Walmart in Canada has a large seletion of T Discs.
S.H. - our Canadian correspondent for all things Tassimo in Canada has put together a comprehensive list of places to get Tassimo T Discs in Canada. We thought we'd pass along his findings for all of our Canadian friends here at Single Serve Coffee.
Braun introduced their Tassimo TA1200 hot beverage system in Canada a few years ago and limited the release of the TA1400 to a few select specialty retailers. As a result, the TA1200 has been the predominant model sold throughout most Atlantic retail outlets. It took a while for T-Disc retailers to appear but 4 have emerged to date:
I decided to take a trip to a few local Superstore & Wal-Mart locations as the nearest LNT or Home Outfitters are over 3 hours away. When it comes to grocery stores, Atlantic Superstore has the best selection of T-Discs with the exception of any Twinings, Maxwell House, espresso or decaf varieties.
You can get your T Discs in Canada at most Atlantic Super Stores.
Wal-Mart carries everything except decaf & espresso (they just added Starbucks discs a few weeks ago). Both Home Outfitters and Linens-n-Things carry the entire Canadian T-Disc line-up. Sobeys is another national grocery chain as well as Superstore's primary competitor; however, they only carry 1 or 2 Nabob varieties.
Also be warned that not all Wal-Marts carry T-Discs as you'll often find only 1 store within a city that carries them (very bizarre). Atlantic Superstore has its selection mixed-in with the ground coffees in the coffee aisle while Wal-Mart decided to group everything into a display rack near its frozen foods section. LNT & Home Outfitters have their selections in the middle of aisles or on walls near their appliances sections (I couldn't get photos of these 2 locations since they didn't permit photography in their stores when I visited a few months ago). In terms of costs, Wal-Mart leads the pack with lowest pricing closely followed by Superstore while LNT & Home Outfitters have the highest pricing (sometimes even a few dollars above MSRP).
Here's the current retail line-up of T-Disc varieties available in Canadian stores (as of the date of this post):
- Nabob 100% Columbian
- Nabob Café Crema
- Nabob Espresso
- Nabob Latte
- Nabob Cappuccino
- Maxwell House - House Blend
- Maxwell House - House Blend Decaf
- Twinings Earl Grey Tea
- Suchard Hot Chocolate
- Starbucks Café Verona
- Starbucks House Blend
Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we'll have further details regarding T-Disc availability in Kraft's online Tassimo eShops, tips on placing eShop orders, and further Nabob T-Disc reviews in Canada.
