Early sightings of Pepperidge Farms Cornbread Stuffing?

Has anyone seen this stuff in the stores yet? It comes in a big 16 (maybe 14?) oz bag.

I'm making my Thanksgiving stuffing/dressing for an "Octobersgiving" party and am (sadly, I know) dependent on Pepperidge Farm's Cornbread stuffing mix.

Although I would ordinarily be happy to work from scratch, this is an unusual situation.... so before you tell me to make my own cornbread and work from there, let me explain. I actually really like the lighter texture that you get from using their bone dry little cubes of corn(ish) bread.

I used the Stovetop version before in a similar Pepperidge-Farmless bind, and it was, frankly, awful.

Any early sightings of the real deal? Any suggestions for replacements?

Thank you in advance!

    I did a search on 10016, within 30 miles. It listed a couple D'Agostino's and a Food Emporium.

    1. I thought I'd add a note in case anyone searches and finds this thread. If there's just one or two lonely bags pushed to the back of the shelf in a store... don't buy it! I thought I was lucky to find a couple of bags in my October search and as it turns out, they were awful. The cubes had been reduced to dust and possibly beyond the good dried bread "stale" and into a off-tasting yucky STALE. The stuffing was entirely inedible. Gooey after the slightest light-handed folding in of additional ingredients. Beware.
