Where can I buy mini-puff pastry shells?

My supermarket in California has pepperidge farms puff pastry shells, but they're pretty big. Has anyone seen the smaller versions in any nationwide supermarket?

    Trader Joe's perhaps? I haven't seen them, but they might have them.

      I haven't seen mini puff pastry shells (the small ones are still pretty big like you say) but I've seen mini phyllo dough shells in the freezer section near the puff pastry.
      I use the mini phyllo shells in several different ways.

      Will those work for you?

        No. I actually need the puff pastry rather than the phyllo. Pepperidge introduced them last year, but I can't seem to find them anywhere.

          I just bought some of the PF minis. They were from a PF outlet store on the East Coast and I was thrilled to see them, thinking it was a new product.
          I hope they aren't phasing them out because they weren't successful.

          I've been hoping they would make these for a long time.
          My tiny vol au vent cutters don't work on the PF sheet pastry because it rises too high for mini shells. I've been trying for years to solve that problem.
