Where can I buy alphabet pasta?

asianstamp May 18, 2009 01:57 PM

I used to buy my alphabet pasta from Albertson's. However, since it became Lucky's, I'm having a hard time tracking this down. Does anyone know where I can buy this? I've tried Safeway's and TJ's but no dice. Thanks!

    Rainbow Grocery may have it in bulk. You could try calling them.

          Potrero Safeway has it in the little bags.

            In my Lucky's (Alameda) it's in the Mexican foods aisle.

              Trader Joe's does still make it. Just call the branch and check.

                  Berkeley Bowl definitely has some. I think that Whole Foods has at least one brand.

                    probably any larger Mexican grocery store will have it. .they have all the pastas in the little bags.. . stars, melon, fideo and usually alphabets as well - I think the brand name is La Morena. . .and another one. . which I can't remember but the packaging is red.
