    I've been looking for it for months also- to no avail. Finally asked one parknshop clerk and she said that if you've tried PNS & wellcome and neither one sells it, then it is not carried in HK. I think it's been over a year since I've seen the Wall's ice cream

    This is the wrong season...too hot...all the walls ice cream has melted. It will refreeze in winter.

    This could be almost as bad as the Great Vegemite Drought.
    Questioning the retailers about the lack of Vegemite gave a number of different replies, but it is finally back on the shelves.
    Maybe, just like Vegemite (and MacArthur), it will return.
    If they have dropped Walls from the HK market then I guess it just wasn't worth it. Either not enough sales, or the total cost to import grew too high.
    We all have to realise that we are living a long way from home and that your favourite snack may not be available, and that market forces will determine which ones are.
    As long as this does not impact the availability of Vegemite in Hong Kong, all is well with the world.

    PDLM - Now if you can help me figure out why the two liter bottles of Lemon Coke Light have disappeared, the spousal unit would be very happy.
