Where's the pfeffernusse?

Florida Hound | Dec 17, 2010 01:05 PM

I need to "vent" that my local grocery stores have not stocked any packaged pfeffernusse cookies for the Christmas season. Only a couple of years ago, they were everywhere, and we enjoyed them through the season. Now- none in the supermarkets. Why not? They must have been fairly popular just a few years ago.
Inverness, FL has a Publix, Sweet Bay, Winn Dixie and Wal Mart. I thought Publix especially could order about anything, but more and more, they are saying "we have changed vendors..." and that was the response I got when I asked about Pfeffernusse.
We found them on a 1-shot deal at the Flowers outlet bread store, and bought a bag. Now, Flowers is out of them and we wished we had stocked up (they were not top-of-the-line, but...).
On a trip to Brandon (about 70 miles out of town), we stopped in a European gourmet deli and found wonderful pfeffernusse, so we have not been totally deprived. Just wondering where this mass-produced goodie of yesteryear has gone to.
