Remembering: creamed chipped beef (aka S.O.S.)

Does anyone know where you can still get creamed chipped beef? I have seen it in the grocery store freezer case (Stouffer's) but it was not great. Really looking for a dinner still serving it.

Background: My mother's family is from Lebanon, PA and it used to be a popular breakfast or brunch item at home and served out. Also known as "shit on a shingle" (S.O.S.) or "skinned indian" (sorry all you PC folks out there) it's great comfort food.

Hormel sells the dried beef (in a jar) in most grocery stores, but the best stuff comes from the Daniel Weaver Co, now a brand of the Godshall's Premium Meats Co, out of PA.
