Just moved here from the northeast. After a relatively exhaustive search I have determined thes items are simply not to be had in Plano/Frisco:

- Skim Plus milk (or other milk that is fortified fat free milk but has taste of whole milk; ultra-pasturized)
- Light cream -- which usually resides in the fridge section next to the heavy cream and half and half.

Anyone know why? Thanks.

I've never seen UHT fortified skim milk in the US.

I rarely see light cream, but you can blend your own by mixing half and half and heavy cream.

Are you talking about the purple cartons from stop and shop called skim plus ?

I haven't seen them yet and I the milk that I have found is horizon organic and a brand from New Jersey. I tried the others but kids like these ones. Maybe in the tetra packs?

For the Skim Plus milk, try Braum's Reduced Fat Milk.

You can get UHT milk in cartons at most stores. It is on shelves and not in the dairy case.

Braums is the best place to go overall.

Thanks for the responses. I haven't seen Braum's in the stores anywhere (closest one is 7 miles away according to the website) but I will be on the lookout for it if it ever does come. It's not the ultra-pasturization I'm after, It's really the full flavor in a fat-free version that I was hoping to find.

The lack of light cream isn't going to kill me. It was just something that I was hoping to find once in a while when needed...

Thanks all!

Braums is an ice cream and dairy store. Their reduced fat milk says "we remove 1/3 of the water from the milk which concentrates it giving it a better taste and making it better for you!" I think that it tastes even better than full fat milk.

I recommend the Braum's skim too! Very rich tasting.

You have heavy cream and whipping cream , the whipping is the lightest of the two. That the only two type of cream you will find in Texas.
