Pampered Chef: Where can i buy sorbet?

  1. I didn't realize that finding sorbet was going to be so difficult. I would love to try the new Tropical Torte w/pineapple - but can't find Mango Sorbet. Can't find any sorbet honestly.
    and the Lemon Gingertini's sound awesome, but don't have Lemon Sorbet.

    I live in Mid-Wisconsin. Anyone know where i can purchase sorbet?

    Am i wrong to look in the ice cream section of the grocery store?

    I was going to say look in the ice cream section. If you have a Baskin N Robbins Ice Cream store you can try them.

    I'm in the Dells. Wal-Mart has it. Usually between the ice cream and the popsicles.

    we have been making the gingertinis (non alcoholic version) we can't always get the sorbet so we are using the lemon fruit bars. we use 2 bars per recipe
    we also like it made with limeade and lime fruit bars

    Sorbet is in the ice cream section of any large super market. Haagen Dazs has the most selection, they come in pint sized containers....HTH

    And in case anyone is wondering, there IS a difference in sorbet and sherbet! Sorbet is non-dairy and is unfortunately usually more expensive, sherbet includes milk-fat. Oh, and sorbet is MUCH yummier! IMO... :D.

    I had a host once buy sherbet instead - now I know to check that they are going to buy the right ingredient!

  10. I checked our Super Walmart in Rhinelander. no such luck.
    I called a larger grocer in Wausau. Trigs. THEY HAVE HaagenDaas sorbet!!! yeah! No Mango, but we'll work on that.
    The Mango icecream worked hey?
    I thought of the fruit bars, but wasn't sure how that would work.
    I know sorbet is different than sherbert. didn't think of the milk-based. just knew sherbert was creamy, where sorbet is more "flavored ice" for lack of a better term :)

    Thank you all for your help. keep them coming if anyone finds the mango sorbet.

    Our grocery store is willing to order items that they don't carry if you request them. Maybe you could ask. :chef:

    Wow, I didn't know sorbet and sherbert were different! I could only find lime sherbert when we made the gingertinis but they turned out GREAT!

    I have found Mango Sorbet at Wal-Mart and Walgreens (drug store of all places!). Around here it is Haagen-Daaz and in the small containers. At my Wal-Mart it is in the same aisle as the rest of the ice cream but more towards the Ben & Jerry's area. Now different stores around here have different kinds of Sorbet! It has taken me several trips to find raspberry before and lemon. One of the stores around here even had some blueberry/some other kind of berry mix!

    For those with access to commissaries- our small one actually had it so I'd guess the larger ones would have it. They also had the large pound cakes as well! :)

    I was just about to say this. I went crazy trying to find it. It is expensive. I found it at our local safeway for $3.00 on sale.

    I had trouble, both with finding the lemon sorbet (for gingertinis) and when I did, with the price! I looked online for a sorbet recipe, made it really inexpensively, and it was great!
Have something to add?
