Pinquito Beans? Lompoc?

Bean Counter | Nov 28, 2005 04:05 PM

OK, my grandparents live in Lompoc so I've spent a reasonable amount of time there in my life. I have always been under the impression that Pinquito beans are a local specialty. In fact, I once had a lovely t-shirt. Anyway I was in the area for Turkey Day and decided to look for some. No luck. I will admit I wasn't hardcore but I really thought all I would have to do would be to ask a few people and voila but only one(!) person even knew what the heck I was talking about. So whats the deal? And does anyone have a source for next time I'm in the area?

Random aside: when I looked in the phone book for gourmet sources, Ace Hardware was listed. Of course I had to check that out and they have quite an extensive kitchen supply collection. You know, for Lompoc.
