    Nestle/Carnation Extra Thick Cream

    I used to get this at Sainbury's for making my spesh Kiwi dip (it's like reduced cream for all the kiwis!).

    Went to get some today, and it's not there! Checked the Carnation website, and though it's there in the image, it's not there in the product lists.

    Does anyone know where I could get it?



    It's on the far right.

    Thanks

    Think it may also be called 'sterilised' cream - so other brands may do that.

    There is a smallish Asda near me now, so I will try there, thank you. I will also look for sterilised cream. Of course they may have just moved it away from all the other evap milk type things, which could be the problem!

    If you have a Home Bargains near you they usually sell it.

    Ive been trying to get this too! It used to be called sterilised cream and came in a blue and white striped Nestlé tin.

    We were talking to the kids about foods we ate when we were kids in the 70s and I wanted to buy this (and condensed milk, tapioca etc) so they could taste it.

    I couldn't find it anywhere (sains, asda, tesco etc) let me know if you find some - I'll try Home Bargains at the weekend!

    That was how I noticed it in Home Bargains, it was like a blast from the past. I hadn't realised it was still sold until then.

    I got some by accident a few weeks ago - meant to get condensed milk but picked up the wrong thing. I got it from Tesco. I've still got it in the cupboard so if you are desperate I can send it to you as I don't think I will ever use it.

    We used to have it on top of trifle when I was a kid. Don't think we ever had fresh cream until I was maybe about 12.

    No WAY? OMG! Lazymummy!

    We don't have a Home Bargains near us sadly, and a Poundland (99p shop) is a 15 min drive away.

    I have emailed Carnation Customer services and will let you know what they say.

    I use it for making dip .
