Q: My husband cannot sit through a church service without Wint O Green Lifesavers. He calls them his “yawn pills.” I can find bags of individually wrapped Wint O Green Lifesavers, but the cellophane wrapping is too noisy. I have been searching for the old-fashioned rolls. Can you please help me? Thanks. Linda H., Dunwoody
A: Linda, I’ve got a local source for your husband’s yawn pills in a roll so that he doesn’t disrupt the congregation. Tuxedo Pharmacy, 164 W. Wieuca Road, Atlanta, 404-445-0278, stocks Wint O Green mints in individual rolls for 99 cents each.
Q: My grandkids and I enjoy working on crafts when they visit. I’ve been looking for a kit that is filled with soft flat foam faces that you stick to Popsicle sticks to make little animal puppets. I don’t know the name of it. Can you tell me if something like that is available near Riverdale? Thanks. Mrs. Williams, email
A: JOANN Fabric and Craft, 250 Pavilion Pkwy., Fayetteville, 770-719-5257, carries Busy Bucket foam puppet pals that makes 40 foam critters, including monkeys, tigers, lions and elephants. The kit includes brightly colored sticks and is priced at $7.99.
Q: Can you please let me know if Carnation still makes malted milk powder? It’s been a while since I’ve seen any and we used to enjoy it in our milk. I hope you can try to find this for me. I looked at Walmart because I thought I bought it there once, but it wasn’t there. Thank you very much for looking. M. Patel, email
A: Nestle Carnation original malted milk mix is still around. It’s not stocked at all Walmart locations, but you’ll find it at Walmart Supercenter, 3100 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, 770-640-7225. A 13-ounce container of the malted powder, which is made from barley, costs $4.44.
Q: My husband wants to try making sausage from scratch and he’s looking for natural casings. He saw some with salt, but he wants plain. He thought the name of one brand was Lem, but I’m not sure. Do you know where I can find these for him? Thanks. Patty Hill, email
A: Patty, I found Lem natural hog casings that will stuff up to 25 pounds of ground meat, from brats to Italian sausages. An 8-ounce bag costs $9.99 at Bass Pro Shops, 5900 Sugarloaf Pkwy., Lawrenceville, 678-847-5500.
