Q: where to get malted milk powder (in cars, or, in bulk) ??

I live in WLA.

1. Anyone know of stores that still sell the 40 oz size Carnation malted milk powder? (I only see the much smaller 13-14 oz size now in Pavillions, Ralphs, etc., but I need to find the larger size, if it's still out there.)

2. Alternatively, is malted milk powder sold in bulk in any stores in the area?

      Steve, at which S & F did you find this product? I tried the Venice one (on Lincoln Blvd) and the WLA one (on SM Blvd, west of Bundy), and both told me that they do not carry it.

        I know the S & F on La Cienega a little below Pico (1835 S. La Cienega) has it but I'm sure some others must as well...

          Sorry if I mislead you. Didn't know one way or the other but thought it might be someplace to try.

        Gelson's has it. Not sure what size container tho.

        Is it a problem to get 3 smaller containers?

        Here's a 2# bag -- 32 oz. http://www.webstaurantstore.com/malted-milk-powder-2-lb-bag/10450521.html?gclid=CMmDiPqy66sCFQdzgwod3T48JA Awkward if you're looking for 40 oz but I wonder if you'll find cheaper since 1# is twice as much at King Arthur. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/i...

          Great link. Thanks so much. Should be perfect. (I have no idea if the tastes of malted milk vary from one brand to another. . . . I guess I'll find out.) :-)
