Milk Lab Almond Milk 8x 1L $34.50 + Delivery ($0 with Prime/ $39 Spend) @ Amazon AU

120

This is the cheapest you can get it delivered.
There is a deal for 28 bucks pick up but NSW only

Had this on price alert and has just come up as a deal.

I posted this as it's the cheapest non location specific deal with free shipping.

    Ipantry sells it for $4 per carton, free shipping for orders over $50

      Nice! I had a look on there and don't really want anything else to spend up to 50. Anything you recommend?

        Therefore not a deal?

        •  

          Well, it depends. If you just wanted the almond milk it's currently the best deal.

          However if you also happened to want some other doughnuts/flour/eggs and wanted to spend up to 50 bucks, AND live in Metro Melbourne (which I don't) then you'd save 31cents per carton.
          Buying 12 cartons of this at $4 per carton from iPantry is $52 + $150 shipping to QLD.

          Generally i'd say those are a few too many prerequisites to invalidate this as a deal.

            @badonde: Fair point, I'm in Melb so thought shipping was included. I'm hoping it's not $150 shipping to QLD though. Neg revoked.

        Well if you don't have Prime, then it's not free shipping on Amazon either until you spend $39.

        So you would need to buy 2 packs (16x 1L) for $69 to actually get the free shipping.

        While on Ipantry link posted by Ratzie, 16x 1L would cost you $64 shipped.

        •  

          Oh good point, i didn't realize the 39 limit for non prime free shipping.

          What you have said applies only if you live in metro Melbourne.
          To metro brisbane it costs 150 bucks for shipping.

          I only shared this because there are some members outside Metro Melbourne and Alexandria NSW https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/553111

    Officeworks for the 5% price beat - they have the 8 pack for $49.98
    They will hopefully then bring the price to $32.78 (do they do this for Amazon deals like this)
    https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/milklab-al...

    By the way, any idea how long the amazon deal will go for?

    What’s special about this almond milk to justify this crazy price?

    •  

      It's just the one that all cafes in SE QLD seem to use - so if you want that real cafe at home feeling then this will seal the deal for you.
      Depending on how you make a coffee of course ;)

        So how does it taste compared to Almond Breeze which Woolies regularly have on 1/2 price (like now) for $1.25/l

        • -1 vote

          I'm guessing a higher % of almonds used. I'd hope so anyway. The regular brands are like 1-5% almonds. I've heard there are expensive brands around and beyond 10%. This might be one of them. Otherwise probably cheaper to invest that money in almonds if you have a blender and make them yourself (Vitamix will make light work of this…)

          I wouldn't mind trying 1L of the stuff though…

            @Click_It: This one says 3.5% almonds. No different to the woolies $2 specials.

          • +2 votes

            @Click_It: This is made for frothing/steaming for coffee. It has thickeners to help to achieve this and isn’t as nice as other almond milks for drinking cold or putting on cereal

          • +1 vote

            @Click_It: Hmm woolies says AB has 2.5% almonds, Milklab claims 3.5%. 40% more almonds for 350% more $

            • +3 votes

              @gadget: So ~ 35g of almonds in 1L pack, the rest being water and some fancy stuff in small print.

              With $4 per 1L of 3.5% mixture, that makes it around $115 per 1Kg of actual almonds.

              Profitable business, but it makes you wonder - are they milking almonds or customers?

        • +1 vote

          This stuff is basically made for barista style coffee, mrs loves the stuff. If you don't have a decent coffee maker then I don't see the point in the premium for milklab.

        •  

          Almond breeze takes a lot of skill to froth in a pitcher. 9/10 times it will split.

          Milklabs is formulated not to split.

          If you're not using this for coffee then simply buy almond breeze or the aldi one.

        •  

          This actually rates good in coffees. It's just a matter of taste, if the cheap stuff rates good to you then that works well for you. I find this stuff goes much better in a steamer and gets much more texture

          •  

            @onlinepred: Cool. I should have noticed earlier that it's specifically for coffee, I just wanted a comparo just out of interest. I normally use the animal stuff :)

            •  

              @gadget: Ah okay, Yea I gave up the animal stuff a long time ago. If you are actually interested, or want to have less impact on animals etc, try out a few different types. I use oat milk in the refrigerator section for cereal etc, milk lab almond for coffee and even oat sometimes. Pretty easy to switch, might take a tiny bit of getting used to, but when the alternative is cheating out farmers and having cows raised to provide it.

              •  

                @onlinepred: We used to have almond milk in the office where I worked before. Originally I hated the taste (mind you it was with blend 43 coffee so no prizes there either) but eventually got used to it. That said I still prefer normal milk tbh.

                  @gadget: After a while I found I disliked the taste of normal milk. It's been the same with my parents and friends who also actually tried to leave animal milk. I would still prefer nearly any other milk substitute over normal milk. Given also that most people develop lactose intolerance as they age, so if you ever do get weird poos or stomach issues, it's a good thing to try and give up. I used to consume a lot of milk, but now it's just almond milk in coffees.

    •  

      It may contains traces of almond ( 3.5% )?

  •  

    Their dairy milk is consistently a good taste and the best I've ever ever had.

  •  

    I'm getting this expedited for $34.50 Brisbane?

    Edit: DW, price updated now to $40.49 with delivery.

  •  

    The price is not $35.40 as suggested in the title, but $34.50. And the promo is on all plant based milk range, not only on almond milk:
    - Almond 8x1L = $34.50
    - Macadamia 8x1L = $31.50
    - Soy 8x1L = $28.50
    - Coconut 8x1L = $28.50

    •  

      Will almond be restocked

  •  

    Is there a link for that $28 NSW pickup deal?

    edit: never mind, found it, didn’t realise it was on ozbargain

    Small problem with the almond milk craze - causing a drain on the river systems.

      Don't look at the impact of cows lol. This is only news as its new. Cow farming has and continues to be more impactful. Leather farming for instance is one of the worst culprits of water wastage.

    The wholelife pharmacy chain sells these as well if anyone just wants a single.

    lol the batch I got was on the list of those being recalled… 1/7/21 date https://www.foodstandards.gov.au/industry/foodrecalls/recall...
