Q: I was delighted to discover Jack Nicklaus ice cream at Kroger just before our Masters party last year. It was the perfect dessert to serve for our “back 9” party on the last day of the tournament. However, I have not been able to find it recently. Could you help me locate a grocery that sells his ice cream? Thank you in advance for your assistance. JoAnn Leahy-Lagi, Sandy Springs
A: JoAnn, according to my sources at Kroger, the store stopped carrying Jack Nicklaus ice cream. However, it is available for home delivery through Schwans.com. You can select from a variety of flavors that range from salted caramel toffee and triple chocolate to chocolate peanut butter swirl and warm spiced butter pecan. Each pint sells for $3.99.
Q: I love the product Aveeno Nourish+Style Volumizing Foam, a division of Johnson & Johnson. Also, it says made in Canada. I would love to find this locally or order it somewhere. Thank you for your help. Marilyn Hunt, Cumming
A: Unfortunately, the hair product was discontinued January, 2012. If you’re absolutely sure that you can’t find a suitable substitute, you can still order the volumizing foam through Amazon.com. A 6.7-ounce bottle will cost you $34.65, though. Note that it’s only a matter of time before stock runs out, but you can probably expect the price to rise even more before that happens.
Q: What happened to Breyer’s fat-free vanilla ice cream? I cannot find it in Publix or Kroger, where it has been available in the past. Thanks for your help. Dan Johnson, Atlanta
A: According to Publix, Breyer’s fat-free vanilla Ice cream is not an item that the store currently stocks, but it can be special ordered at any Publix location. Note that it takes about two weeks for the ice cream to get to the store.
You can start looking. Soon.
I’ve had to disappoint more than a few readers in the past by letting them know that their favorite salad dressing, Old Dutch Sweet and Sour, had been discontinued. Very seldom do I get to inform them that a beloved item has been brought back to life. However, I received an email from Reily Foods, which also offers Blue Plate mayo, French Market coffee, Luzianne tea and Swans Down cake flour, stating that “due to the overwhelming number of inquiries we have received, the company has made the decision to manufacture once again.” Old Dutch is back — well, it will be back soon.
You can start looking for Old Dutch Sweet and Sour dressing in a few months, but note that the dressing will only be available on the company website, reilyproducts.com.
