Whatever happened to jelly rolls?

It was a staple of my childhood, not from home cooks but from bakeries or the grocery store baked goods. I remember small ones, a la Twinkies or Dolly Madison cakes, and larger ones, perhaps 5 or 6 inches in diameter. Seemingly always a red filling, which I now realize was raspberry jelly, and crunchy sugar on the exterior. Are they still around in any part of the country?
