Where to Find T Discs for Tassimo in Canada

walmart2.jpg
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.

From S.H.:

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.

A&P and "The Barn" grocery stores carry Twinings, Starbucks, most Nabob, Maxwell House varieties as well as Hot Chocolate. As a matter of fact, I have found Tassimo products in every major grocery store in the Golden Horseshoe area, although not all carry tea. (Toronto to Niagara area)
