Horlick's Malted Milk?

Has anyone noticed a source of Horlick's Malted Milk in Chicago? I can order it online but the shipping costs as much as the jar of Horlick's so I'm looking for a local vendor. Maybe a health foods store? Thank you.

    Horlick's, the pride and joy of Racine, Wisconsin is hard to find in Chicago? Oh, how the mighty have fallen?

      I FOUND HORLICK'S MALTED MILK. Wikipedia said the country that consumes the most of it is India so I went up to Devon Avenue and found it at Patel's, $4.99 for a big jar.

        Excellent. I will have to make a trip to Devon too.

        Any of the Chinatown grocery/supermarket stores will carry it too.

          Thanks. It is certainly worth tracking it down locally as a British groceries place online wanted $6.99 plus another $6.99 shipping and amazon.com wanted around $7 shipping for a $3.50 plastic bag of the stuff. The $4.99 at Patel's is for a 400-gram jar, nearly a pound, and you can ship it home yourself in your shopping bag.
