Where To Find "California Earthquake Potato Chips"

Has anyone else had these? They're SO good. The only place I can find them is at the Do-It Center checkstands, in small bags. Gelson's used to have the larger bags but they discontined them. The story goes that an earthquake sent all the spices at the chip factory tumbling, and the spice blend created a brand new flavor combination. Anyway, the taste is sort of a lighter and sweeter version of a BBQ potato chip, really yummy....if you see them in a store please let me know where, thanks!
