White Lily self-rising flour - $2.00 a bag?

Hi all,

Where I live, White Lily flour is not available (I've checked everywhere - Kroger(Frys), Wal-Mart, Safeway, Costco, etc.). I used to be able to order it for $2.00 a bag, but White Lily's online store is gone. It now costs a little more than $4.00 a bag.

Does anyone know of an online place where I can order for $2.00 a bag?

Thank you,

  1. I can't remember what it costs (as I'd buy it if it were $50/lb). but Surfas in Culver City has both plain and SR flour AND SR cornmeal mix

      I just checked on their website, and Surfas' price for all the White Lily flours is $5.99 for a 5-lb bag.

      I would guess that WL shut down their online outlet to avoid competing with their own customers, now that it's being distributed more widely.

        I was at Surfas and they no longer carry White Lily Products. I was told that there is no longer a distributor in Los Angeles.

        Any anyone know of an alternative source except the Smucker's website?

    2. Eddie, how long ago was this? I don't think you're going to find White Lily anywhere for $2/bag these days, not even in a supermarket in South Carolina. ;) For that, you'll be lucky to find a supermarket house brand, I think.

      1. Hi all,

        It was about in December when they had it, but a Google cache still exists and it shows January 8, 2007.

        I think I found it.

        Go there, and you find:

        The product page is still up. I don't know if I'll be able to order it (they might call me and tell me my order's cancelled), but I will try and order that.



        1. Post back when you find out? I just poked around a little on that site, and when you go through the main index and search pages, it says there's nothing "currently available" in the flour category...

          1. Yep, but Google's cache still has the White Lily link. The product page is still up for some reason. I'd think that if they didn't have a few bags in inventory they'd remove that.
