Twiglets--where can I find them in DC?

Every year I get my English husband a bag of twiglets for his stocking. We just moved from NY, where it was relatively easy to find them, but I have had no success in identifying a place here in DC where I can get them.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

    Rodman's?

      Just tried Rodman's. No go. Other thoughts?

      I believe British Pantry in Old Town Alexandria has them. They are on the 100 block of South Columbus, just off of King Street.

        British Pantry does indeed have them. If the other recs below don't work out, I will make the drive out. Thanks!

          Nope. At least not right now. Tried there over the weekend.

            Maybe the "designer" grocery stores-Dean&Deluca, Wegmans, Balduccis, et al.

          I'm not sure if they stock them, but it's definitely worth a try: Classic British Cigars and Goodies in Clarendon:

          I haven't been in ages, but they do sell a whole bunch of British snacks, teas, candies. Maybe worth a call to ask if they stock Twiglets. Seems like a product they would sell...
