First Post I've been Money Tipped!
I discovered by accident that one of my grandsons likes their chocolate one (he was at my house in the week and tried it from the fridge) I looked in My Supermarket site and it seems as only Sainsburys seemed to stock it .This morning after dropping another grandson to work I nipped in to the local one and low and behold they were doing packets with 4 flavours to a box for 60p. So I bought 5 boxes in case its being discontinued . I seem to remember last Christmas Mr T's were stocking the chocolate flavour only, wich I had bought a few boxes for him :). I have just made a bowl for him for tomorrows pudding and its chilling nicely in the fridge.At 60p for a box of four its 15p a packet and add a pint of milk (I use UHT or evaporated ) it makes a decent sized cold pudding for hot days that won't break the bank

    I love to make old fashioned milk based puddings. You are right though it is increasingly difficult to find them but Sainsbury's do seem to stock more than most.
    I keep looking for flaked rice
    I wrote to Whitworths and the answer was 'there is no demand'

    I remember liking the raspberries flavour as a child.

    Try an Indian supermarket? Or Amazon.

    I've searched (almost) everywhere for this and can't find it.
    I tried Sainsburys (that used to stock it) and now get the answer "Blancmange ! What's that ?". After explaining they check their little ipad type thing and say it's not available. :(
    It looks like Pearce & Duff became part of Kerry Group (ROI) in 1995 but I can't find any reference to them on the Kerry website.
    I've asked them what's happened but I've not had a reply yet.
    Dose anyone know of any High street retailer that still stocks this ?

    @MarkDerry
    Available on Amazon - search "blancmange powder" and you'll get Pearce Duff's is available. 
    So it's available even if not on the high street.
