E gads, I'm at a loss! They don't make it anymore?

What do use now?

We use Carnation or Nido or Soy Milk Powder.

I recently found Nestles INSTANT Full Cream PM. And it real does dissolve very quickly in cold water.

The last run of Milkman was January 2008. Even if you managed to find some in some long-forgotten storeroom, it would be way past shelf life.

Time to move on.........

Sadly they closed the plant as mentioned above....

On the other hand, half NIDO and half non fat works pretty well! You can also get full fat from PackitGourmet by NIDO and another brand :-)

Powdered Milk & Eggs on 05/27/2009 07:08:31 MDT Print View

We did a blog entry on powdered milk (and eggs) awhile back. We didn't carry Nido at the time but have since added it to the site. It's one of my favorites with the other being Nature's First.

Nido on 05/27/2009 07:24:50 MDT Print View

I grabbed some Nido in the "ethnic isle" at our supermarket - half price promotion ($2 per can). Doesn't -dissolve as well as Milkman, but it beats the non-fat stuff by a mile.

Peter, I have found that in recipes warm water works well with full fat milk. If you get clumps in cold recipes, us a spork to beat it good - or really shake the milk up.

Great news about Milkman! on 05/13/2010 10:15:22 MDT Print View

Due to the overwhelming response to the sudden end of the product known as Milkman, our company (Marron Foods) has decided to take over the production and distribution of this product. Our plan is to have it back on the market sometime this summer. For more information, please contact me at

Very good news indeed....

Be sure to let us know when it is on the shelves - a lot of hikers will be waiting to hear this.

I recieved a sample of Milkman, and it is like I remembered. So much so, that I am taking a look at changing my resupply boxes' menu contents. Thank you for the sample, and I will be letting NIDO go.
