Amy, don't despair! After ~15 hours, hundreds of addresses checked, and ~20 eMails sent out, I
believe the last one sent out will
lead us to Handi Foods Ltd. and their outstanding product: Pita Puffs. I'll get back to you via
this site. delabate

amy, I left off another contact I
made by eMail on Jan 7th:

o Gigi Deelstra
Kidssentials
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada
info@kidssentials.com
905-855-9942

Gigi offered to "jump thru hoops",
including working w/customs to get
Pita Puffs for me. She even gave me
her home phone #.
I have sent her a letter of thanks,
but have chosen to get P.P.s from
the NH source I mentioned above.
Steve, thanks for your info (which
I got after I made the above three
contacts). I will keep it to back
up the info I have. Thanks to all, and I hope you have a happy, healthy New Year. delabate

I would love to know where to buy these tasty little snacks. Here in Florida we used to be able to get the ranch and cinnamon. I haven't seen them in a long time.

Hi! I found the Handi Foods Baked Pita chips at Meijer in Indianapolis, IN. I didn't see any puffs, though. I bought the garlic and chives flavor and they are great.

They are sold at the grocery store on the corner of Ottawa/Lackner in Kitchener!

These illusive pita puffs can be found at Food Basics stores across Toronto. Not at ALL locations though. And may or may not carry all flavours.
Enjoy!

I bought these today at Food Basics for $1.47 a bag. They were the BBQ ones.
YUMMY!

Think I know why I haven't been able to find them easily lately. Company had some legal trouble.

I don't think you read that source all that well as their legal troubles were dated 1993! That's 16 years ago!
