    Looking for uht milk in small pots/sachets 24th Jan 12 at 4:27 PM
    My husband uses dairystix at work for his coffee

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dairystix-Semi-Skimmed-UHT-Milk-sticks/dp/B0045VA2US/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327421989&sr=8-1

    He doesn't have access to a fridge so they are convenient (and cheaper than paying the cafeteria prices for a coffee on his break)

    Does anyone know where we can get hold of these, or similar (small pots would also be fine) at a reasonable price. I have ordered them from tesco when I do an online shop but don't do online shops very often and I forgot to get them last time (no big tesco nearby). I can't seem to find them in other supermarkets.

    Thanks

    As you have put a link to Amazon in your thread why not use them?

    What about the "coffee mate" type coffee whiteners? And I have also seen coffee sold in sachets with the whitener included (Kenco 2 in 1). I don't drink coffee so no idea what they taste like.

    Hi,

    I have loads of these that I took from a Travelodge a few weeks ago. Well, since I paid for them, I might as well take them!

    I can post them to you if you want?

    Try Makro or similiar, they do them for B&B's - of if you don't have access to Makro, try calling a few B&B's and asking them where they get them - and you never know, they might even sellk you some at cost price.

    Hi I used to get them in Asda to take on holiday. Might be worth a look. Haven't bought any lately.

    Got some delivered via tesco groceries this past weekend. Only found them accidently after searching UHT milk.

    I used to take a small jar of powdered milk to work. 2-3 tea spoons mixed with cold water at the bottom of the cup worked like fresh milk, much better than trying to add the powder at the end to go all lumpy.

    Might be worth a try at home to see if it works.

    Approved foods sometimes sell them, still P&P but a good excuse to buy other bits.

    Im fortunate enough to have a Booker Card, and a local Booker so get them from there.

    The Lichfields ones in the pots are 2.85 for 120 x 12 ml pots

    The Lichfields milk sticks are 2.99 for 100 x 10ml portions so your getting less for more but it takes up less space

    But yes they are much cheaper than buying a pint of, they dont get nicked or go off at work, and healthier as you only use whats in the pot our office milk club is unfair anyway.
