ISO Milo drink powder

Any one know where I can buy a tin of Nestle Milo in the Montreal area?

I tried searching but only got a lot of hits for Milos ! :(

    Tourtiere Australienne on Parc has it (though call first, they get it in shipments and it can sell out)
    One of the stores at the Jean Talon market sometimes has it (the general store type store near Havre Aux Glaces - not sure of the name sorry!)

      It's now widely distributed. Most supermarkets and gourmet shops stock it, and every Asian, Latino, African and Caribbean store in town has it.

        Thanks for the replies,
        SnackHappy, maybe I'm not looking in the right places, but on my last forays into Provigo, P&A, IGA, Asian store on Fort and a couple of the smaller stores along Ste Cath, I did not see any.
        Of course I'm willing to expand the search, could you please provide any specifics.

        I will also pass by TA since they might have the Aus/NZ formulation that is more malted/y and less sweet than the North American versions.

          Well, other than "it's in a green can that says Milo", I'm not certain what to add. The Montreal area is pretty large. It's usually found in the "ethnic" food section of the store, but that really depends on the store. I've seen it at various Loblaws, Maxi, SuperC, IGA. Kim Phat and Hawaï always have it. It's really all over the place.

        i've seen milo at the loblaws in parc extension. it's usually in the imported cookies/drinks aisle, but i've sometimes seen it in the international foods aisle.

          I saw some today at the IGA in Mercier. It was next to the Nesquick.

            Thanks again for the help. Eatingproject, I found it at the JT Loblaws which is right by my work!
            Enjoying it now and creating weird and interesting coffee beverages with it too.
