WTB: whole wheat gemelli pasta

collinsgavornik | Nov 22, 201401:54 PM

I'm looking for dried whole wheat gemelli and my nearby stores [star market and whole foods] have ignored my request to stock it, even though both carry a brand [DeLallo] that makes it. Has anyone seen it around?

Back story: When I lived in Texas, a local high end grocery chain called Central Market had a store brand whole wheat gemelli that was _the best_ texture and flavor. Women would actually stop each other in the pasta aisle to rave about it, it was that good. I once tried to buy a case from the Texas store and have them ship it up here, but had to go through their gift basket people who estimated it would cost over $100. [I'm obsessed, but I'm not crazy.] For a while I bought the DeLallo brand in bulk through Amazon, but discovered I had a little mouse problem that my landlord still hasn't resolved and I just don't have big enough mouse-proof containers to hide 16lbs of pasta at a time.
