    I was out on 355 today so I popped into the Meijer off the Boughton exit to look for Carnation Malted Milk, and I was in luck. $4.39 (I think) for 13 oz. They had two types available: chocolate and original. I bought the original.

    Having it side-by-side with the original Ovaltine, they are definitely different. Whatever the "natural flavor" is in Ovaltine, it detracts a bit from the pure maltiness of the drink (but it gives that signature Ovaltine flavor.) It's not bad and while it is recognizable as malt, the Carnation is straight-up malt flavor. Back when I used to brew I used a lot of dried malt extract, and tasting the Carnation powder very much reminded me of that flavor and smell.

    If you're looking for it at Meijer, it's not by the coffee and hot chocolate section -- it's by the chocolate syrups section in/near baking goods where the Quik and Ovaltine are. (I thought the Quik would be in the hot chocolate and coffee aisle, but no dice.)

    The Ovaltine is easier to dissolve in cold milk, though.

    Thanks, Binko, for the info and impressions and especially for where to find it at Meiers. Thanks also, Nancy, for the info about it possibly being at the Walmart in Niles.

    I have a feeling I posted this before: Some Targets have Carnation MM. For Katie, Mundelein Target does.

    Thanks very much, tjr. I'm going to stop by that Target tomorrow to check.

    If it's there, it would not be the first time that Target has surprised me by being the only place I could find certain things other stores aren't stocking during these pandemic times when stores are stocking more of the big sellers and less of the other products. The last one was Knorr's parma rosa pasta sauce mix (I use it to make a unique take on linguine with clam sauce), for which I searched high and low for several months (resisting the buy-online-from-Amazon option) before I finally found it at, of all places, Target.
