  1. 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?

      are the big Venezuelan the same as the big Florida ones?

        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.

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

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