So I was put onto this through EB and can't find it anymore!

Stupid useless staff can't tell me if its discontinued or not either.

Looked with the cake stuff (& other cocoa) not there.

Looked with the hot chocolates etc (where it used to live!) and it's not there either.

Is anyone else having trouble finding it?  Should I try another Woolies? Or has it moved location in your store too and please where is it hiding?

i got some before christmas.  I think the packaging has changed, if it used to be in a box, as it is now in foil packaging

The black gold brand from IGA has dissappeared from the shelves too.

Just bought a pack from Woolies yesterday. i found it near the cake mixes and other baking products, but yes, it's no longer in a box, it's in a white foil packet. It might have disappeared from the shelves for a bit while the packaging was changed over.

Call up Woolies customer service. They should be able to tell you if the product is still available etc. We had this problem with a product that we could no longer find at Coles. They followed it up and tracked it down.... esp once I said, "No, it wasn't available for weeks" at various stores.

They moved it not longer ago to the aisle where cake mixes and sugar are. At my local woolies its on the bottom shelf under I think bicarb soda area. Stupid place but that's where I found it. Hopefully you will find it too.

It's in a different packet and was on the bottom shelf of mine, it had disappeared for awhile, but it's back.  Ring the head office.  It was under the chocolate section of the cake aisle

I noticed the packaging change before Xmas at my local Woolies. Am keen to see if the quality is the same as the old one, it's a fantastic rich cocoa.

At mine the cocoa is with the baking, cakes, sugar right n the bottom shelf.
