The Brighton Whole Foods used to carry these but no longer, it seems. Any other place to get these?

    I bought some at that WFM not long ago; they must have just stopped carrying them. Russo's carries them, though that's in Watertown.

      You have to look hard, but they're there (I do think they were gone for a while, though)... in the dried fruit section, at the bottom, in pint containers. Not too expensive, either ($2.99 for a pint). I miss them in bulk, but pints are better than nothing.
      When I need them in bulk and don't mind a nice drive out of the city, I go to Debra's Natural Gourmet in West Concord. Reasonably priced and you can get as much as you need (their bulk section is one of the best I've seen around here).
      Also, I'm told by a relative that the "new" Whole Foods in West Medford still has them in bulk.

        Not near, exactly, but South End Formaggio stocks them.
