Hostess Chocodiles

I am on a mad hunt to find one of my favorite snacks as a child, the Hostess Chocodile. I have not been able to find any! Does anyone know where I can find them? I was told Walmart sold them but was unable to find them there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Be careful when you open that link, cheeky -- disturbing images of Chocodiles! ;-) There's a stiff charge for shipping and handling, but if you gotta' have 'em, you gotta' have 'em.

    "The Fresh Chocodiles Team" is located on the West Coast -- and Hostess makes these things only in their West Coast bakeries -- so you and Google should be able to find a more-direct route to the prize.

    On the other hand, why not just make your own by tossing Twinkies into a pot of melted chocolate (or -- and this could be illegal -- by dripping the deep and chocolaty mole negro at Monte Alban over a warm, fresh Twinkie)?

      A lot of 7-11's and gas station convenient stores tend to carry them. Also you could always try one of the Hostess Bakery outlets, which I know carry them.

      Man, do I love those things! I've never had a problem finding them at Ralph's and they are sold in single serving packaging which is great if you only want a little indulgence. I have to warn you though that they are sometimes stale at Ralph's; must not have a lot of turnover.

        Try Smart and Final.

        Saw them today at the Hostess outlet on San Fernando Rd. in Glendale.

          Either Vons or Ralphs. On the bread aisle.
