Have torn apart 3 HEBs and 2 Wal-Marts looking for them. One asian grocery store had one variety but only a few packages and acted like I was crazy when I asked them if I could get them to order me a box.

Has anyone seen these out in the wild in San Antonio?

Since you're willing to take a whole case of this, why not request it from HEB? When you have a UPC code and are willing to take a case of something if they don't want to stock it, you can request an item from there. Just ask the cashier for a request form and turn it in at the service desk after you fill it out.

I haven't spent much time looking at the noodles in the Asian foods section, but the 3 HEBs I know of that have the best selection of Asian foods are the store at Wurzbach and I-10, the Plus store at Blanco and 1604 and the Alon store at Wurzbach and NW Military.

Sorry, can't help you about where to get them locally but you could always order online: Just a thought.

But then there is always the shipping price to deal with.

Shirataki Noodles | AsianFoodGrocer.com

Sun Harvest can probably order it by the case as well.

Edit - sometimes I can't find what I am looking for and just order a specific dry food online, I have not used the services of the above link however.

Okay, Tim's has them. Just the "House Food" brand which isn't calorie free, and only two varieties. They're also more expensive than Asia Market ($1.99 vs $1.39). And they're not in the noodle section, fresh noodle section, or the tofu section. They're in a cooler by the registers. Go figure.

Anyway, I left a few packets for the rest of you but more or less wiped them out.

Thanks for the tip.
