Dulce de Leche - In the Can.

mcsheridan | Mar 23, 2009 10:30 AM

I spend a bit of time on UK food boards, and the idea of Banoffee Pie has been growing in my mind. Not wanting to boil up a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk, I went searching...

First I found "Nestle Treat Caramel" from the UK, and while it's available from online import sites, the price is a little steep. Writing to Nestle about when they'd be offering Nestle Treat Caramel in the US was a bust, as the botgal who responded thought I was talking about candies, not canned caramel/dulce de leche.

Doing a little more searching turned up Nestle La Lechera Dulce de Leche, available in the US (also imported, but from Chile) in many urban areas or areas with a Hispanic consumer base.

Store Locator:

So, I picked up a can last night (13.4 oz - $2.79) in the "Imported Food" aisle; it was shelved quite close to the Goya products. Now, there's a Banoffee Pie in my future, and maybe Millionaire's Shortbread after that. Yum!
