Help!!!! Where are the jelly beans??????

What did Montréal do with its jelly beans? Didi I miss some recent statistic that jelly beans kill?
I am having a wicked jelly bean craving- and I don't want 50 flavours. Or 49.
I want eight: red, orange, yellow, green, purple, pink, black, white. Nice bright colours, not all old and sticky.
I used to get the resealable McCormick's ones, and they were so good.
I just spent a couple of hours all over Mile-End/Outremont and cannot find any jelly beans! Where'd they go?
I checked every pharmacy, dep, movie rental place, dollar store, and grocery store and there are no jelly beans! None! Like, literally (in the actual sense of the word), none. At the Blockbuster, they had apple/cherry/coconut ones from Christmastime at 75% off, and I saw some Jelly Bellies at a Jean-Coutu. But holy crap, people, I am serious- not another jelly bean out there! Not a single crummy package. I just want plain old-fashioned jelly beans. I have had the Sans Nom ones before- they are terrible- but they also didn't exist today- I don't get it. Easter candy is out there, and not a single jelly bean. There are tons of jellyish candies- blue whales? Jelly rabbits? Jelly everything, and no beans.
But I want that special, candy-coated, not grainy sugar-coated, simple-flavoured good jelly bean taste! 1) What is wrong with Montréal?
2) Has anyone seen the McCormick's jelly beans anywhere for sure? I will travel anywhere in Montréal and get them!
I feel like I am stuck in the Twilight Zone.
