    I wouldn't go out of your way to search out an asian grocery store, but if you happen to be near one, you should check it out. There is always the standard Horlicks and Ovaltine mix, but sometimes they have Carnation brand too.

      Here is an old thread discussing exactly what you're looking for:

        It's on the shelf at my local ACME market. I wanted a malted milk shake.

          I got some from a chocolate factory in Grimsby (near Hamilton) called Monks Chocolates last Christmas. They do not sell it in the store but the manager sold me a couple of pounds in a bucket. This is the real stuff.

            You want Horlicks. Most Asian stores have it. Some supermarkets also. Possibly at a bulk store.

              Picked up a jar of Horlicks at of all places No Frills at Carlaw and Gerrard St. E.
              $4.99 a jar. It will last me a loooong time.
              Yes, I shop at No Frills, Food Basics and other places where I can get a deal.
              Meat and Produce are where I go to higher end shops.

                  (OT - that No Frills at Carlaw/Gerrard was a pleasant surprise for me when I went in for the first time a couple of months ago. Bright, clean, produce looked nice, and best of all a good selection of Herdez mexican foods - chiles in adobo, different styles of salsa, canned tomatillos etc. It's great to have a source of serviceable Mexican ingredients close to home when I can't get to Kensington. /OT)
