Desperate for zwieback!

No, it's not for die Ubertoddlerin. It's for the apple cake recipe I learned at my grandmother (of blessed memory)'s knee.

It used to be you could get them on the top shelf of the cookie display in any grocery store. Then they moved it to the centre of the baby area. Then it was the bottom shelf of the baby area. Now I can't find it anywhere.

Holland rusks will NOT do. Biscotti, despite being Italian for "zwieback", will not do. And graham crackers or wafers of any description won't do, either. It has to be zwieback.

I'm really hoping I can buy these and not have to spend the time making them. I've already made the applesauce from the Gravenstein apples I bought in Oak Glen this weekend; parsonage's emergency dessert must follow!

Please help me find it. The closer to Anaheim, the better, but I'll travel.
