Do you have a preferred milk powder? Brand, whole or skim?
I am looking for some less expensive sources for quality powdered milk. Sourcing Nido on the web is expensive but I am afraid to even look at the "health food" stores here - they are outlandishly pricey. I haven't seen any in Costco or supermarkets - at least not good stuff in bulk quantities. But then if the product doesn't yell and wave at me from the shelves I wont see it.

I just use the store brand non-fat milk powder. I can't find whole milk powder and even if i did, i wouldn't get it because it will probably end up being too expensive. By the way, I have been making chocolate for a long time and chocolate with non-fat milk powder tastes great! It tastes like artisan brand once you create a good recipe. Anyway, Good luck!
I order my powdered milk from Azure Farms in Dufur Oregon. (http://www.merchantcircle.com/business/Azure.Farm.541-467-2220 )
It is not a cheap powdered milk, but it is organic. As well they seem to be able to ship into Canada (I cannot find a supplier here). The previous place I ordered from is not able to ship across the border - last time it was stopped and destroyed at the border.

Wabbit - I did some figuring and find that the Nido direct from Amazon with super saver shipping is the cheaper by far. It works out at about 2.9 cents vs 1.9 cents, shipping included. The milk I bought is from the Netherlands - maybe it is made differently from that from other countries. We will see!
