  1. I saw some at Gelson's a few weeks ago, but I don't know if it is a seasonal thing or not.

    1. It's all over the place. It was at Gelson's on Wednesday for some retarded price ($12.99 a pound or some such nonsense), it's at 99 Ranch, and I saw it at Olive Marketplace on Oxnard and Whitsett in North Hollywood for $4.49 each or something.
