looking for pickled tomatoes

tomato fiend | Feb 20, 200209:09 PM     5

i think i picked up my taste for pickled tomatoes when i lived in nyc. when i moved to sf, i used to find bottles of bubbies pickled tomatoes in the supermarkets. then i moved down to la and while i can find bubbies dill pickles in most of the supermarkets here, no sign of their pickled tomatoes. the sad thing is my vons in santa monica carried claussen pickled tomatoes for a little while. i tried one just to see and it was pretty vile.

so i'm looking for anyone who knows of a supermarket/specialty food store in santa monica/west la/even oc(where i go visit my family) that carries bubbies pickled tomatoes or a comparable brand. hell, i'd pay shipping if there was an online site that sold them.

i checked out bubbies.com and the info was pretty sparse. i even emailed them asking for the address of some of their distributors in so cali, but have gotten no response.

ps: my last trip to nyc i stopped by the carnagie deli for some pastrami and was surprised that the pickled tomatoes served were not as good as the ones i liked from bubbies.
