    I’m not familiar with store bought meringue.
    Where in the supermarket would you find it?

      I think you need to ask your own grocery if they carry it and where. I get mine from Trader Joes and I think it’s in the cookie section but I’ve seen some of it in either in the candy section or sometimes near the fruits so it could be anywhere.
