    I wanted to use some in a ham and noodle casserole but nobody carries it.   icon_cry.gif

    You can still find them in higher end stores in CoCoCo, as well as in that pricey place in Burlingame, whose name I forget now; some of the foodie shops in N. Berkeley are sure to have them. Mikeytom Market on Church St. in SF may also carry them, and I've even seen them at some Safeways and Albertsons.

    I found out that there's a Nob Hill not far from me; I'll try them.

    I made a tuna noodle casserole and used the little salad macaroni. I kind of like them; they don't take up as much room as regular elbow macaroni.

    No wagon wheels at Nob Hill.

    They also didn't have what I was really wanting, Hershey's baking chocolate. My grocery store started carrying it but now they've stopped.

    I don't know why Ghirardelli's chocolate is so popular, other than it's regional, but its flavor isn't the pure deep chocolate that Hershey's is.

    They did have Scharffenberger (bought out by Hershey I've heard; heh) so I bought a block of that; another over-hyped chocolate as far as I'm concerned.

    I've been making ganache; a big dollop of it goes in my morning coffee.

    I see them in the health food supermarket all the time, but typically whole wheat, brown rice and corn/quinoa varieties.

    Thanks, I hadn't thought of that. I get stuff at the local health food store so I'll need to remember to check next time.
