HELP! I can't find Brach's spice jelly beans anywhere in the city! Really!

I'm pretty excited to finally have a reason to post here, after having lurked for years. I only wish it was for a less-frustrating reason.

I actually thought that Brach's had discontinued their spice jelly beans in favor of the "classic" fruit variety after having no luck whatsoever at finding them anywhere. I've been to NINE different drugstores and three grocery stores in various parts of the city--the UES, LES, and in-between areas--and no luck whatsoever. The best I've been able to find is a bag of all-black licorice beans. But the spiced kind are available from many sources online.

So, what gives? Where are the spice jelly beans hiding? It's not usually this hard to find my beloved "gramma candy" here in the city--readily-available Necco Wafers, check... C Howard's violets... Licorice allsorts, no problem... Yes, clove is my favorite flavor! How did you know? Did I mention I'm 22?

Although I haven't been there to check, I don't think Economy Candy carries them. I'm out of ideas and the drugstore lighting is starting to give me a tan.

Can anybody help?
