Straus Barista Milk

Hi, looking specifically for retail Straus Barista milk. Whole, 2% and nonfat sightings all appreciated. The closer to West Hollywood the better.

Thanks!

    Have you checked with your local Whole Foods? They would be my first place for this search.

      Just checked with the West Hollywood Whole Foods. No dice. They do carry various other Straus products. Will call some of the other local Wf's.

        No need to call. WF doesn't carry Straus Barista milk. Never have.

        Straight from the cow's mouth:
        "Right now it is currently available for food service accounts" -- That was circa 2009, but AFAIK, it hasn't changed.

        TJ's Straus Cream Top is hard to microfoam, in case you're wondering. But it is only $3.70/half gal. Water it down for lower fat content.

          Thanks Tony. You inspired me to speak cow and e-mail Straus. Received a very prompt reply. They do not have any for retail, just distributor to business (coffee shops).

          Coffee Commissary on Fairfax sometimes has half gallons in their retail refrigerator that is a self grab for juices, waters, etc. Unfortunately it's just a tease as it's the only thing in there that isn't for sale. I'd appreciate it if any customers who have interest ask nicely if they will add it as a retail sale item!
