Default Elephant Powder

Anyone know what happened to Elephant brand BP? Is it available anymore? It's the best stuff I ever tried, unfortunately I only bought 1 lb. many years ago and it's almost gone!

Maine Powder House used to carry it. But it looks like they have dropped it or something. The link for Elephant does not work either.

You're the first one I've ever heard say anything good about it. It's defunct, has been for years.

Elephant brand is gone so let us avoid the tendency to flog a dead horse.

Hows about looking at a date? Not to beat a dead thread but this is almost 18 months old. Long dead and forgotten.
