I recently found Nestles INSTANT Full Cream PM. And it real does dissolve very quickly in cold water.

The last run of Milkman was January 2008. Even if you managed to find some in some long-forgotten storeroom, it would be way past shelf life.
Time to move on………May 25, 2009 at 6:09 pm #1503465
Sadly they closed the plant as mentioned above….
On the other hand, half NIDO and half non fat works pretty well! You can also get full fat from PackitGourmet by NIDO and another brand :-)May 27, 2009 at 6:08 am #1503848Sarah WeltonMember
We did a blog entry on powdered milk (and eggs) awhile back. We didn't carry Nido at the time but have since added it to the site. It's one of my favorites with the other being Nature's First.May 27, 2009 at 6:24 am #1503850Peter BurkeMember
I grabbed some Nido in the "ethnic isle" at our supermarket – half price promotion ($2 per can). Doesn't -dissolve as well as Milkman, but it beats the non-fat stuff by a mile.May 27, 2009 at 8:03 am #1503860
Peter, I have found that in recipes warm water works well with full fat milk. If you get clumps in cold recipes, us a spork to beat it good – or really shake the milk up.May 13, 2010 at 9:15 am #1609436daniel pearsonMember
Due to the overwhelming response to the sudden end of the product known as Milkman, our company (Marron Foods) has decided to take over the production and distribution of this product. Our plan is to have it back on the market sometime this summer. For more information, please contact me at [email protected].May 13, 2010 at 9:51 am #1609441
Very good news indeed….
Be sure to let us know when it is on the shelves – a lot of hikers will be waiting to hear this.Apr 12, 2011 at 9:27 am #1723583Peggy McGuinnessMember

I recieved a sample of Milkman, and it is like I remembered. So much so, that I am taking a look at changing my resupply boxes' menu contents. Thank you for the sample, and I will be letting NIDO go.
