Callisto, you should check the condiments or ethnic foods sections of whatever larger grocery store you have nearby. If they don't have it, do you have any gourmet food stores? It may be a little more expensive there, but believe me, it is well worth it. The other thing is you can always try buying it online.

Do they still have Food Lion? back there. I think that's the name. They were really big back when.

Food Lion does exist but it is by far and away NOT Vons/Safeway. Not even close. As a matter of fact, they've got this weird thing, they have three different names in the same city, Food Lion, Bloom, and Bottom Dollar. Bloom gets the good meat. Bottom Dollar gets the stuff that comes in that's mislabeled or almost expired, and Food Lion is in the middle. It's a weird grocery.

It sounds like something Harris Teeter would carry and I have to go to the lake tomorrow, so I'll look there. I mean, anything you can pour over cream cheese is thumbs up in my book.

Callisto, there is the exact same thing here in arizona. AJ's fine food it the store with all the best product, like whole foods, just local. Next in line is bashes, and then the store with the least good quality products is food city. They are all owened by the same company. Bashes is like safeway quality.

Yuck is right...This is the kind of thing that drives prices up and causes me not enter the store again.

I was surprised it didn't have one of those plastic seals on it and then I opened the other jar and there was a pop, the peach salsa did not have a pop.

I'm going to check Lowe's and maybe Bloom when I go out again.
