I love that jumbo couscous but can't find anywhere.

Does anyone know an online supplier?

Hi Sophierosie,

I almost went loopy trying to get hold of this delicious stuff after eating it in a pre-prepared salad once with feta and chilli oil from Sainsburys.

It took me a whole 18 months (no word of a lie!) to track it down, it's especially hard as it has so many different names (Jumbo, Mograbieh, Giant, Israeli etc).

Anyway, you'll be pleased to hear that I've started supplying it (£3.50 per 250g box) and will post it anywhere within 2 days.

It's a really nice variety and only takes 10 mins to cook in simmering water.

You can find it on ebay, my username is kattowgirl (or just search for Jumbo couscous).

Hope that helps! Kind regards, Kathryn

You can get it from Tesco stores which have a kosher section.

You might be able to get it from or, although they run an online grocery type service so might not post it out to you (justkosher has a £35 minimum delivery charge).
