I didn't see these at Shalimar in Central Square, where I'd gotten them before. When I asked the woman who runs the place, she told me they can't import them anymore--they come from Thailand and apparently the FDA has determined that they bring in bugs with them.
She said the situation's the same in all stores in the Boston area, and in NYC.

Anyone else heard about this?
