    you won't believe it, but I found Cafe du Monde Coffee w/ Chicory at 99Ranch (Fremont) around 5 dollars, check with the 99Ranch in the South Bay (Milpitas, Cupertino). Don't have to buy it in New Orleans that's for sure.

      Actually, Cafe du Monde is common in Asian markets because it's popularly used to make Vietnamese coffee.

        I've never seen Zapps chips anywhere other than the New Orleans area.... Hopefully someone will post that they're someplace locally!

          Zapp's Potato Chips has a website that you can order from directly. They even have Zapp-o-Vision!


          The last time I was in New Orleans, I tried their Spicy Cajun Crawtators and was pretty impressed. Must be due to their kettle cooking process in 100% peanut oil. Firm, snappy crunch and spicy, cajun barbecue aroma really goes well with a cold beverage nearby. Make sure to try their Hotter 'N Hot, too!

            Can't help you with the chips.

            As for Cafe du Monde Coffee, you can do better
            by adding chicory to a can of Yuban.

              I was looking for NOLA-specific foodstuff for a Mardi Gras gift basket I'm putting together. I'll head over to Ranch 99 and/or CostPlus to check out the coffee.

              Just an FYI but I found Cafe Du Monde beignet mix at Cosentino's (but, no coffee!).
