Powdered cheese for popcorn

In addition to their parmesan cheese in the green can, Kraft used to sell powdered cheddar, in an orange can, I think. The green can stuff is pretty vile, but the cheddar wasn't bad on popcorn. I assume it was approximately the same stuff that Kraft includes in its mac and cheese package, maybe not quite so finely powdered.

But they stopped selling it more than 10 years ago. Where locally (NoVa or DC) can I find a substitute? Anyone know of a baking supply shop that might have it? I've found it online, but either the shipping charges were unrealistically high, or the smallest size (intended for commercial bakers, I suppose) was too big for my personal use.

My son has suggested buying mac and cheese and using the pasta part in a different dish. I may resort to that, but doesn't someone in town sell it in small quantities? Maybe one of the ethnic groceries? Some place in that big market that has Litteri's in it?

Oh, and why does Morton no longer make that really finely ground popcorn salt anymore? Not butter-flavored salt, merely salt, but very fine.
