WHERE to find shelf-stable milk???

Postby FussyOldHen » Tue Jan 29, 2013 10:56 pm

Not only can I not find it, I can't even find a store employee who knows what I'm talking about. They lead me over to the soy and rice milk cartons and ask if that is what I'm asking about.

At the stores I usually go to, I find the shelf-stable milk in the same section as the canned milk...as in with the evaporated or condensed milk, usually on the BOTTOM shelf.

My local grocery store-- Shop Rite, has it in quarts where the canned milk is, and in juice pack style in the juice aisle.

Costco has it juice pack style and in 1 liter containers, both white and chocolate. I just bought some today!

What area in Costco? I couldn't find any. I thought it would be near the canned milk, but no luck.

No Shop Rites way out west.

I get the Parmalot milk at WalMart, has a shelf life of six months. Yes, scan the BOTTOM shelves carefully, it's there. I'd also perhaps just ask the store employees where the Parmalot milk is on the shelf, someone may actually know in that whole store...lol! It's great to keep for cooking, and for emergencies when you want a bowl of cereal or to make pudding or something. I usually keep several on the shelf, keep watch on the expiration dates, and use them FIFO.

I've been looking on the bottom shelves, thinking that if they had it at all, that's where it would be. Okay, I'll check Costco again and the other WM.

Thanks!

I find it's usually in the baking aisle at my stores. Brand name is Parmalat. Occ. Dollar Tree will get it too ($1 is a GREAT price!)

Last month I switched over to canned milk.

I buy 12oz cans of Evaporated Milk (not condensed) from my local grocery store's Baking Goods aisle. Pour the Milk into a 1 quart mason jar then add one can-full of water to un-concentrate it. Shake it up and put it in the fridge. Makes 3 cups of milk for $0.79 which is just how much I need in any given week.

How does it taste to drink billpiece, or do you just use for baking/cooking and such?

I looked at the Parmalot milk today at Wally World and the dates were June 2013. What is the longest lasting of the shelf-stable milks?

My Wife drank some over the weekend and she said it was good. I use it mostly for cooking and in my coffee every morning.

It comes in a Fat Free and whole varieties. I've tried both and they both seem good. The cans of milk I have now, which I bought a few weeks ago have a use by date of Aug 2013.

The costco brand I bought yesterday is called HORIZON ORGANIC and comes in a small case of 18 8 oz containers. It expires 11/13 so I will rotate it out before then. It would probably be cheaper to buy it in 1 liter containers, but with the smaller ones, I figure in an SHTF situation and no refrigerator, I could open 8 oz at a time and not have to worry about keeping it cold.
i rotate this out by letting the grandkids drink it. I plan to keep 3 cases on hand and should have no trouble rotating the stock

I also do have some freeze dried powdered milk in cans from Honeyvillle Grains and I also buy evaporated milk at Aldi's cheap. I use that in my coffee as it's almost like cream and also in cooking and baking. I keep several cases of that.

Sorry I cant remember which aisle I found the milk in at costco. When I go back next week I will make a note of it. Good luck!

In Minden Louisiana Wal-Mart has Parmalat in the baking section. I tried it and found it nothing special. I will stay with condensed and Nido as it is not skim milk and when cold is not bad at all. Swamp

Really? I liked the Parmalat, and I couldn't tell a difference between it and the skim milk I usually drink. I had some Parmalat shelf stable milk I had to open one morning when I realized my kid had finished off the gallon I had in the fridge.

Don't worry about that date--I've used some with 12 month expiration dates on them--yes, they are fine.
My earliest date now on the shelf is May 2012...and I would not hesitate to use it.
I ususally have about 20-25 cartons in store.
I had a Gossners in the fridge to use, but dh brought store-bought home.
I left it in as it was chilled and dh used it one morning--he raved at how great it was and loved the taste.
