IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT COMMENTS

Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. That means you will not see your comment when you post it. It will instead show up within 48 hours, along with my response if one is appropriate.

All comments are welcome and will be posted, even if they are negative. You just can't promote other sites or products in them.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at stevecarper@cs.com.

Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on Smashwords.com or Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Are Lactaid Scoopfuls MIA?

Lactaid is one of the few companies, if not the only one, to make completely lactose free ice cream in a variety of flavors, as I reported last year in Lactaid Scoopfuls.

I said at the time that Lactaid didn't even mention Scoopfuls on its own webs site. Today it does, kinda. There is a product request form page that mentions Scoopfuls as part of a form that readers can send to store managers as a "wish list of LACTAID® Brand Products that we hope you will carry in your store." But no ice cream is listed under the regular products page.

So is Lactaid Scoopfuls currently in any store?

Amazon no longer lists Scoopfuls on its web site. All links to the Scoopfuls pages return an error message. Even the one from the Amazon ad for Lactaid Scoopfuls that appears when you enter those words into Google!

I tried dozens of other links that popped up at the Google search page, but each of them apparently had originally led eventually to Amazon, and each of them turned up broken or empty.

If anybody out there knows of a site that still sells Lactaid Spoonfuls, please let me know. I'll try to get in touch with someone at Lactaid who might know what's going on.

Otherwise, the first paragraph of my previous post on Scoopfuls holds up better than ever.

Where's the lactose-free ice cream, everybody asks. It doesn't sell, I reply.

So true. So sadly true.
