    I love em and see them sporadically at various Latino markets:

    Mayfair in Allston
    Russo's in Watertown
    Tropical Foods (does that still exist) in Roxbury.

    Where are you geographically and other hounds will chime in?

        I am in West Roxbury. I have looked for them in Market Basket, but no luck.

        Will travel for them! I will check out the places you suggested

        Thank You.

        They always have them at Wegman's. I've also seen them at Russo's sometimes. I don't like them so much though.

          I know I've seen them at C-Mart and Kam Man on occasions, but not consistently.
