Sweetzels Spiced Wafers in Florida?
I just posted on a Pennsylvania thread about a tradition around Philly called "Ivins Spiced Wafers" and their apparent competitor, "Sweetzels Spiced Wafers," available only in the Fall. I have run across the "Sweetzels" in Florida in years past, in the Fall months.
I am asking if anyone has any Florida leads for where these tasty ginger cookies are hiding this year...more to the point, where they are actually available in our Sunshine State this year!
Just checking in, as I have before, for any ChowHound suggestions or leads for Sweetzels or Ivins in stores in Florida??? They are a Fall-only commodity, a Pennsylvania tradition. In 2011, I did find a source for Sweetzels on-line (a bit cheaper than aruntx.com, if I remember), but it would be nice to know they do exist somewhere in a real brick-and-mortor store in FL, too. Thanks for your help, guys,

A few years ago my wife started an autumn tradition of having spiced wafers in our home. We just got some this past week from the Aruntx Premium Shopping Marketplace http://aruntx.com/ and they are wonderful, the package was very carefully packaged and not one broken spiced wafer cookie. They carry Sweetzels Spiced Wafers, Ivins Spiced Wafers and Sweetzels Ginger Snaps, along with other gourmet foods and gifts. Highly recommend.
