    Ahhh, memories of Horlicks tablets which one can still get at Vermont Country Store. Then you can make your own.

      useful, but i have a caveat, this is for a bet. i bet my friend that we can no longer find strictly "malt flavor ice cream". and i'm hoping to prove my friend wrong! i would love to be proved wrong to find the store though.

        Reminds me of Baskin and Robbins Irish Jamocha I had 40 years ago and never saw it again. It was Irish whisky flavored coffee icecream with chocolate chunks. Maybe it was just a SF Bay area thing with the Buena Vista Cafe in SF serving their legendary Stanton Delaplane approved Irish Coffees. Who says you lose your memory when you get old?

        And B&R had molasses icecream too for all to short a run. And why is it you have to go to Europe to get licorice icecream.

      Are you referring to Carnation Frozen Malts?

        Thrifty's used to have a malt ice cream. Chocolate with tiny little malt balls.
        It was pretty good.

          Ummm, that was vanilla with little malt balls and they still have it. I think it is almost their number one seller, at least here locally.

            It's called Chocolate Malted Krunch and I have a tub of it in my freezer right now. =) Rite-Aid bought out Thrifty's but the ice cream kept the brand because it was so good.

            Contact Mariposa Ice Cream in San Diego and see what they know.

              came across this discussion and thought I'd let you know that in this day and age (2013), malt is fairly popular on the east coast. Il Laboratorio del Gelato has a really nice version--that's in NYC.
