ISO Horlicks Malted Milk Tablets

Has anyone seen these in the Bay Area recently? I posted a thread about ordering them online a couple years ago, and someone said they had seen them in Oakland Chinatown. TIA for any help.

  1. You could try Orient Market on 8th or 9th ? just off of Broadway in Oakland. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if they had Horlicks. I used to eat those too.

        I tried Orient market as well as everything with the Pacific East Mall -- no luck yet. Anyone else have any suggestions?

          They don't have them at Ranch 99.

        2. I have ordered them online from The Vermont Country Store:
          They're very reliable and carry lots of wonderful -- yea, nostalgia! -- products. Happy hunting!

          1. You might call to confirm, but I could've sworn I saw them at Cost Plus (MV) the other day. The reason I'm not sure is b/c I haven't heard of them, but I saw them at CP and remember thinking, "What are Horlicks?", "What an odd name", etc. Maybe it wasn't Horlicks and maybe it was another weird-named drink (It was hot cocoa or some kind of drink, whatever I saw, though it looked like powder rather than tablets). Then I saw this post.

            However, don't hold me to this. Next time I'm there again, I'll check.
