Malted Milk Powder - Where to Buy in NYC?
Trying a simple recipe combining peanut butter, malted milk powder and dried coconut for yummy snacks. I know Carnation and Ovaltine make it, just to name the more popular varieties, but I can't seem to find. I wish to buy IN STORE and NOT online if possible. Anyone bought and can advise where to go? Tried many stores, many within the same chain, on Long Island too. THANKS! -cH
Horlicks is another choice. It's a UK brand popular in Commonwealth countries. The jar I last bought (at a Chinese grocery) was made in Jamaica. You might also find it among Indian groceries.
I recently got Carnation malted milk powder for a cake recipe on Chow.com. I was able to get it at my basic local grocery store here in the city. I believe it was in the same section as hot chocolate and coffee. I have to believe if Food City carries it, the larger chains must stock it, too. Did you inquire with the manager? Good luck with your quest -- the snacks sound very yummy!
You can try Kalustyan's at 123 Lexington Ave (around E. 28th), New York, NY 10016 (Phone= 212-685-3451). I vaguely remember seeing Ovaltine and/or Horlick when I was shopping there a few weeks ago. I just checked their website and looks like both Ovaltine and Horlick are sold by Kalustyan's on-line but you can give them a call to save a trip in case they don't carry them in their retail store.
p.s. Ovaltine is misspelled as "Ovalitine" (with an extra 'i') at Kalustyan's website in case you have trouble looking it up.
