BBQ Fritos?

Has anyone seen BBQ Fritos? I use the original for Frito Pie, but I love these for munching and bean dip.

Frito-Lay still makes them, but doesn't widely distribute them. It's sad: the Frito-Lay empire was largely built on Fritos, but they neglect them for dozens of horrible-tasting Lays potato chips and nightmarish Doritos blends. I find Chili-Cheese Fritos passable; can't abide the Honey BBQ Fritos (ugh, and they don't even look like Fritos).

I e-mailed Frito-Lay, and they basically told me to look around. (BTW: I loved the short-lived Tabasco Fritos. Easy enough the duplicate at home: Buy original Fritos, place in plastic bag, douse with Tabasco sauce, shake, spread on baking sheet, heat in 200-degree oven until crisp again.)

You can find BBQ Fritos on-line, but the shipping is a killer.

I'm in Friendswood, so I'm interested in any BBQ Fritos sightings in that neck of the woods. But I'll drive further if necessary. I'll even fly, if I need to; I fly my Cessna for boudin, Hill Country BBQ, and Mississippi Delta tamales.

Thanks kindly.
