Re: Milo - where to buy in Ticino

It's similar to Ovomaltine.

Doubtful if it's available here.

Re: Milo - where to buy in Ticino

G'day from a fellow Aussie in Switzerland.

Like a previous poster suggested, I have sometimes found Milo in Asian grocery stores. Be aware, however, that whenever I have found it here it has always been a product originating in Singapore. This stuff has the same packaging and a similar taste. But it is not quite the same taste and texture as the Australian one, particularly if you like to eat it straight from the tin...

Although I have never tried this, I was just searching online for a possible supplier for you and found this: http://www.aussiefoodshop.com/australian_food_home.html

It is a Sydney-based shop selling the real deal worldwide. No idea if the prices or postage would be prohibitive, but maybe worth it if you are desperate!

There is actually this Nestle factory store in my village, where they sell Milo. Google possible Nestle factory stores in your vicinity..maybe they carry Milo as well.

Neither Nestlé Shop Switzerland nor Germany sell it. But you could get it on Amazon.de

I don't know about Tessin, but I know you can find it in Zürich. I usually get it from a Turkish shop called Barkat. Not sure if there is one in your area.

Re: Milo - where to buy in Ticino

Hello from a fellow Milo fan. You can buy milo from SANZA in the UK: http://www.sanza.co.uk/ Not sure if this is the real deal (I've tried stuff from South Africa, Japan and the UAE and it doesn't taste quite the same), but worth a try?

Re: Milo - where to buy in Ticino

I found this interesting piece of research entitled 'Milo, Ovaltine, Horlicks – nourishing drinks of yesteryears'
https://littlegirlstory.wordpress.co...f-yesteryears/
I used to sometime go past the grimy Horlicks factory in Slough, GB. But that was many years ago and I never, as far as I remember, ever drunk the stuff.

Re: Milo - where to buy in Ticino

Haha! Yes. I miss that good ol' chocolate drink. It's tastier than Ovaltine aka Ovamaltine. But why would you want Milo when you could actually buy fresh chocolate milk here?
