Bonne Maman Rhubarbe for cheap?

When I was in Paris a couple of weeks ago, I had a little time to kill before catching a train and decided to poke around in a little convenience/grocery store down the street from the Gare du Nord. I was shocked by how cheap some of their jams were and couldn't resist picking up a jar of Bonne Maman rhubarb jam (as well as a peel-top can of Clement Faugier crème de marrons). I've seen both these at my local Whole Foods for relatively major money (something like $8 and $12 respectively). At this little store in Paris, the jam was 1.25 euros and the spread not much more.

Anyway, now I'm hopelessly addicted to downing Bonne Maman Rhubarbe with fresh ricotta, but my reserves are dwindling fast! The combo is so sweet-creamy, slightly-chewy...I simply must have more! Can anyone help me feed my dependency on the cheap in the Boston area? If necessary, I suppose I'll have to shell out at Whole Foods, but I'm pretty sure my local small WF doesn't even have the rhubarb flavor (maybe they have it at bigger WFs?) Any report of rhubarb-flavor sightings (be they cheap or, I guess, pricey) would be much appreciated.
