Just a shout out to see if I can find some Nesquick Banana flavor drink powder.
The Mrs. loves it and I'd like to surprise her for her birthday.
I can do $ or trade cigars for your bother.

Thanks in advance.

Damn Darryl, could have grabbed you some when we drove back from Myrtle Beach a few weeks back. May be headed to PA next month. When's her B-day?

I wasn't aware they even made it, Darryl. It sounds delicious ( in that cool chemically bananna-y taffy-like way), and I will keep an eye out in my neighborhood.

May 22nd.
I hope to find some if I have to go to Pittsburgh for work in a couple of weeks.
If not I'm hoping someone here wants to do some business....:r

Doing a search online for it and it says it's been discontinued for a while. Might be really hard to find any.

Man I used to love this stuff as a kid in California. I've never seen it here in PA. Now I really want some.

Worse comes to worse, perhaps you could find a Torani syrup to get some points.

I used to love this stuff as a kid. After searching high and low and hearing rumors of it being discontinued I got desperate and decided to try fleabay on a whim. Somehow there seemed to be Banana Nesquick in abundance there. Problem is that it's all in the UK. I guess they still produce it there.

I just did a check and there only seems to be one seller at the moment (http://www.ebay.com/itm/500g-Nestle-Nesquik-Nesquick-BANANA-Milkshake-Powder-UK-FOOD-/140736873438?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Food_SM&hash=item20c49243de) with 3 left in stock. It's ~$20 shipped to the US for 500g. Pretty steep, but then again, that's a lot better price than it no longer existing. Send him/her a message and see what the shipping cost is to Canada.

On a side note, I wish I could still get Hi-C Ecto Cooler too. That stuff was the bomb.

Hey Duane, check out post #8. ;)

There is also one more seller with ten of the 300g units, but with shipping the 500g seller is the best bet.

Let us know if you score. If not, there's a British store right next to where I work and British and Scottish importers here in Barrie.

:tu I ended up ordering a 500g tub from that seller on fleabay. It arrived today and I took my daughter on a trip down memory lane. I probably should have broken out Fireball Island too.

Banana Quick shake powder... $5
Shipping from the UK... $15
Reliving a Banana Quick shake from powder with my lil' girl... priceless.
