Search for Alphabet Pasta - Twin Cities

Does anyone know where I can buy alphabet Pasta in the Twin Cities? Preferably Minneapolis, but I'd go over to St. Paul too, since that would still be cheaper than purchasing it online.

I used to buy it from Trader Joe's, but they stopped selling it a bit ago. I haven't thought about it in a bit, but our interest revived and so I thought I'd see if anyone had seen it anywhere.

  1. I've seen it at most Cub Food stores in the Hispanic food section. It comes in a plastic bag like egg noodles, only smaller.

      Thank you - I'll take a look the next time I'm at Cub!

        How funny - I assumed that alphabet pasta was available everywhere, but now that I think of it, I've only seen it at Mexican groceries. If you're closer to El Burrito Mercado or another large Mexican grocery, check there before you head to Cub.

          Thank you both! Found them today at Cub! Glad to finally have some again. It would never have occurred to me to look in that section for alphabet pasta! Mole sauce yes, pasta letters, no. Once again, Chowhound comes through.
