Empire Kosher frozen latkes?

Okay, these are about as inauthentic as a latke can be, a triangle of pressed brown-crusted shredded potato plus starch binder, like a folded-hankie-shaped Tater Tot. I don't care; they're cheap, delicious, and I love them. They were for many years (in Nashville) my favorite backup plan for breakfast potatoes, and it seems to me I used to see them here for a while. In Nashville I'd buy them at Kroger, currently the parent of Ralphs, but I've searched in vain there - Ralphs just has those raggedy authentic things, much more expensive and to my taste not as good (sorry!).

Anyone seen these in the LA area?
