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?

    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.) :-)

        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.
