Looking for Dried Lychee at Trader Joe's?

Anyone find dried lychee at your local Trader Joe's? Fremont one doesn't have it, so I'm asking around. Anyone seen it? I heard it's pretty good and want to get some, willing to travel.
They have it at the Mountain View Trader Joe's. I bought it and I wasn't that impressed. It was ok to buy the first time but I probably won't buy it again
I saw dried lychee (and dried rambutan if anyone's looking) at the Los Gatos TJs on Sunday. In a plastic-lined foil pouch, top row of the dried fruit section. The price scared me away.
I tried them and they grow on you -- they don't all taste exactly the same, some sweeter, some a tiny bit woody.
I went back (San Mateo) to get more - and they didn't have any. The guy talked me into buying dried rambutan instead, saying it's the same. It's not: the rambutan is freeze-dried, and is light like styrofoam -- we've been calling it styrofruit. Not nearly as tasty as the lychee. but fun.
I will buy more lychee when they have it.
They are in foil zip packets.
