I recently received this email from a reader:
Why has Market Basket, Shaws and Hannaford stopped selling Josephs oat bran low carb pitas! Many friends along with myself have been searching for them everywhere and no one sells them. We have 3 market baskets within 5 miles of us and not one of them has them. BRING THEM BACK!!
I think I found the missing pitas -- they are at BJs. You get 3 packages of them for about $3.59, all bundled together. BJs also has Thomas's Carb Counting Bagels, two packages for $4.50 or thereabouts. (As I said before, they also have Atkins approved bread and Russell Stover Low Carb Candy, 15 bars for less than $10.) In the choice of the pre-packaged low carb war, BJs beats Costco.
I suspect that the missing pitas will soon show up again at Market Basket, Shaws and Hannafords. It is probably a supply problem. Remember, Shaws and Stop & Shop were out of Carb Countdown for a while (I could only find it at Johnny's Foodmaster) until supply caught up with demand (and now Market Basket and Crosby's have it.) I would bet that the same thing is happening here.
BTW, the low carb pitas have 60 calories each and 5 net grams of carbs.
