Anyone....?

I received a great-sounding recipe for a protein-laden ice cream from Miss S the other day (who, by the way, REALLY should set up a blog!) and was all gee-ed up to make some. BUT.... after a fruitless search for frozen egg whites, involving what seems like hundreds of supermarkets, I've given up.

Does ANYONE in Melbourne know of a Coles or any other supermarket that actually stocks these? Preferably north(ish) of the city....

Pretty please?

I don't know where you can get them but I'm sure I've seen them before. Supermarkets are so annoying - they seem to carry such random stock. You'd think if one supermarket carried something then all the ones in the chain would.

Btw, I made a batch of your protein cookie recipe for the first time today. Awesome!

Woolies....they have them here in little ol Innisfail-they'll have them there.
They are hard to spot cause they are in a skinny 950ml carton on a low shelf in with the pastry stuff here.
Also-they have reduced fat tortillas now too! woohoo! now if they would just combine the low fat with the whole-meal-I would be in absolute heaven-LOL!

PS-where is the protein cookie recipe? I didn't see it in your good food blog-maybe I was looking too quickly and passed it?

Raechelle...I WISH it worked like that. I've been checking Safeway for YEARS for frozen egg whites and have never found them yet. Supermarkets are weird in the way they stock products - it seems to have little to do with the size of the local population, and more to do with what the manager feels like selling.

Oops, forgot - I haven't posted the cookie recipe on my blog yet. I'll make a batch and do that soon, promise!

KEK-here is the e-mail of the goldeneggs guy-msciano@Goldeneggs.com.au
He can give you a list of where the product is stocked.
Cheers!

I spoke to the guys at Evelyn Faye about the frozen egg white situation awhile ago. I used to use them and they disappeared from my Safeway. A boy at Safeways told me they'd decided to stop stocking them. So i looked around at some other supermarkets. Then at Evelyn Faye they told me that the Western Australian company had decided to stop importing them into Victoria. Business reasons. I find it interesting because they seem so popular in the States.

You're welcome! Hope you can track them down-there so convenient!
