You will typically find molasses in one of two places in grocery stores: the baking aisle or the cereal aisle. In this article, we share where to find molasses at Walmart, Kroger, and Safeway, as well as which stores carry pomegranate molasses.
Where Is Molasses in Grocery Stores?
In most grocery stores, you’ll find molasses in either the baking aisle or the cereal aisle. If you don’t find molasses in either of those places, a less common area that some stores may use to stock molasses is the spice aisle, by the boxed puddings. Following are details about where to find molasses in three national chain stores.
Where Is Molasses in Walmart?
Walmart stocks molasses in the baking aisle near the sugar and other sweeteners, customer service representatives we spoke with at Walmart locations in New York, Pennsylvania, Kansas, and Arizona said. Usually, you’ll find molasses right by the corn syrup in the baking aisle, and it’s often stocked on the top shelf.
Where Is Molasses in Kroger?
If you shop at Kroger, you’ll typically find molasses in the cereal aisle near the maple syrup. We spoke with customer service associates at Kroger locations in Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and Virginia to verify this information.
Where Is Molasses in Safeway?
Similar to Kroger, Safeway stores stock molasses along with the pancake syrup in the cereal aisle, associates from stores in Idaho, California, and Nevada told us. One representative mentioned that molasses is usually found on the top shelves by the syrup.
Where to Find Pomegranate Molasses in Grocery Stores
Since pomegranate molasses is not a commonly used item, most grocery stores don’t keep this product in-stock. We contacted several locations of various major grocery store chains and found that only Whole Foods carries pomegranate molasses regularly. However, some stores have pomegranate molasses available at select locations. You can usually learn whether a grocery store near you carries this item by entering your zip code on the product page at the store’s website, or searching your location’s current stock in the store’s mobile app.
