Searching for Nido on Amazon also returned Peak brand whole milk powder. It's cheaper. Anyone use it?

I don't know about Peak, but KLIM is good,a nd about 1/2 the price of Nido, I think. Very popular in Latin America and made in Holland, I think. It's also a great way to attract the attention of US Customs,if you buy a big bag of i tand stuff it in your suitcase ;-)

Be careful with Nido -- there are 2 kinds: one is non-fat (ewww) and the other is the full-fat good stuff; but the packaging (color, design) is the same on both. Read the label a bit carefully or you'll be disappointed (as I was!)...

I prefer Milkman.

This may seem radical, but I prefer a custom mix of about 80% Ensure powder and 20% non-fat powdered milk. Ensure has other nutrients and calories in it besides plain milk, and it is vanilla-flavored. It works for me. I have one unopened can of Nido for backup. Milkman used to be preferred, but it got hard to find.

Milkman is readily available at REI. I've some in the cupboard.

I used to like Milkman rather than what was then regular dehydrated milk (i.e., non fat) because it tasted much better (to me anyway). When Milkman went away I tried full milk Nido. I really like the rich taste (and the extra calories). Haven't tried Peak.

May sound weird but how about infant Formula? actually tastes pretty good,better than lowfat powdered milk for sure, maybe even more calories than powdered milk.

Just wondering... What do you guys do with this stuff? Just use for recipes? Sounds like you drink the stuff. Bleh!

Why not something like weight gainer or Recovery 2:1:1 that has some body to it if just for drinking?

I definitely don't drink it straight. I use it in cereal and oatmeal. It is good to use with recipes too.
