Red Vines Tubs available in N.O.?


I'm coming into town for a week for the IPCPR (cigar show) and we tend to get four or five tubs or Red Vines for every show. I'm hoping I don't have to pack them, and can just buy them when we get into town.

Does anyone know if they available for sale in N.O? I tried calling the listed Sales Representative:

but she pawned me off on someone else who didn't answer the phone.

    1. Well, I called Walmart, Target, and Walgreens. No luck. They do have Red Vines, just not the tubs.

          Called Sams, no dice. Called Rouses and Lengenstein's, no dice.

          I guess I'm packin' Red Vines.

          Try the two locations of Cost Plus World Market. WM often has candy not easily found elsewhere.

            Tried the two in the N.O. area, and they don't carry it.

            Thanks for the idea though!

            The Red Vines rep called and said that they don't really go for red licorice in that area, so they don't distribute. He suggested I call Sams.
