I was unable to obtain the powder locally. The product was sent to me very quickly and enabled me to make a recipe my daughter brought back from Vancouver. It required this specific powder. The cookie bars were delicious!I am very grateful I could find it on the Amazon site. I would order similiar products without a minutes hesitation. N Nullmeyer

Same superior product for the last 60 years or more. Plain old fashioned Brit custard.

I was searching for this product specifically because I wanted to make Nanaimo Bars. In the area of the United States I live in, I've never found it. I was glad to find it available here on Amazon, and the price was fairly reasonable.
The powder made it to my home in a timely manner, and it worked wonderfully in the cookie recipe. Our Nanaimo bars tasted great! It has an expiration date of about a year from the time I bought it, so to get my money's worth, I'll need to use the whole container up in that timeframe, which shouldn't be too difficult. I know lots of people say this is just glorified corn starch with a little flavoring in it, but having the authentic flavor in the recipe was important to me, so that's mainly why I purchased it.

Pros:
- Easy to make over the stove in a matter of minutes with milk and sugar
- Still tastes great with almond milk (wouldn't advise using vanilla flavored milk, it conflicts with the flavor of the custard)
- Tastes great over white/ vanilla cake

Cons:
- If you're American you'll need to add more sugar for a sweeter taste if that's what you're used to
- You have to keep stirring constantly until it's completely boiling, otherwise it won't turn out right

How can you go wrong? This product is older than I am and I have enjoyed it since childhood. I like to make English Trifle for desert and there is no substitute for Bird's Custard. It is a wonderful comfort food. Yum!

I have a friend from Vancouver BC who wanted to make Nanaimo Bars when she was here last year, but she could not find custard powder. Amazon to the rescue! This year I purchased the custard powder for her and she used it to make them. I don't really know what else you can make with custard powder, but it was definitely worth if for the Nanaimo Bars alone.

I purchased this product a little while ago and just got the chance to make it this morning. Oh, what memories this brought back from my childhood in England. Even though I don't have many happy memories, this custard was my absolute favorite. We'd have it in trifles, over cake. I remember having it in school and now I can enjoy it here in my very own home. If you grew up only knowing the American vanilla pudding, this is different - it has a much more delicate flavor which I prefer. Well, I'm off to make a pound cake to accompany my custard. YUMMY, YUMMY !!! Ta Ta!! UPDATE: I refrigerated the custard and when I tasted it something was missing - that flavor of freshly made warm custard. I decided to nuke a bowl of the custard for about 30 seconds and then stirred the custard - the freshly made flavor returned so I suggest you reheat the custard before use.
