Found 4 bags at the local Menards. That was all they had and didn't know if or when they would have more.

I tried that when she was trying to find the Red Hot variety. Can you believe the best answer I got was, "just go buy it in the store"?? This after detailing all my efforts and asking if they could tell me anywhere I might try. The rep behaved like it was commonly available everywhere. Finally after pressing, I get a canned response about how they change the flavors from time to time, etc. So I wasn't going to bother wasting my time with direct communication this time.


Jim - I'm not much for posting family pictures on the Internet. He's doing well though! He's the cutest baby in the world to my wife and I, but I know everyone thinks that... to others' eyes, they all look the same!

Speaking of the little guy... he's waking up. Gotta run!

Thanks for checking!

Hey, did you pick them up by any chance? Presuming you don't want to eat them yourself , could I PP some money to you and have you mail them to me next time you find yourself at a post office? 4 bags should weigh one pound (presuming they were the 4oz bags and not the 0.8oz bags) so that'll only cost < $7 to mail to Canada. I was hoping for a couple cases, but 4's better than nothing!

Thanks Jim! You don't have to rush to the post office... just when you're there next is fine.

See my response right after his post. Unless I missed something, neither link gets me what I want. The first doesn't actually have them and (I checked) can't get them - they just haven't clued in that they should reflect that on their site! The second link doesn't show that flavor at all.

Thanks. I actually did find that one too... but there's a limit to the value of my wife's cravings

They're a little over $1 a package and that eBay seller wants over $50 for $12.

A better deal (though still not very good) is here: http://www.amazon.com/Cornnuts-Chorizo-Chipotle-Flavored-Quantity/dp/B00620VY84/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1331242185&sr=8-4
$84.82 for 36 bags, or $2.36 per bag.

Believe me, I searched The best I could find was the menard's but no shipping.

If you make it out to any of the Stars (professional soccer) games at the National Sports Center this year (home opener at the dome), find the crazy section with the banners and constant singing, then grab a handful of the Cajun Creole Hot Nuts that has become their official snack and is passed along regularly for whoever wants it. Peanuts instead of corn nuts, but tasty nonetheless. And how many snacks gets songs written about them?

OK, the free beer that Surly brought in last year was better (15 cases!), but you missed that.

Full schedule for them is here: MN Stars FC | North American Soccer League

I saw a couple of mentions of Amazon. . .try searching there but look at who the supplier is. Often it is not direct from Amazon and it will say in the small print somewhere up by the price and inventory status who is supplying the item. You can try going to their site and contacting them directly. If they offer a 3 pack over Amazon and you want a case, the supplier who fulfills the Amazon Web-based order may be able to do the case. We went through this looking for dark-chocolate covered Mauna Loa macadamia nuts. Eventually found that Target carries them.
