Where Can I Find It?

Q: Is there a local outlet where I can buy the original candied bacon rub? I’ve been wanting to give this a try for some time. Buying online is not an option for me. Thank you. — Ralph Smith, email

A: I recently read that bacon is on its way out. I highly doubt it, but in case there’s some truth to that ugly rumor, I suspect that Southern Culture original candied bacon rub is going to bring back bacon in a big way. Produced locally by Shark Tank alum, Erica Barrett, whose Southern Culture Artisan Foods snagged investor Barbara Corcoran, the brown sugar-based rub gives plain bacon a sweet and spicy kick. You can find 8-ounce tins of the candied bacon rub for $7.95 at Sur La Table, Phipps Plaza, 404-973-3371.

Q: I am looking for Glory hot sauce. Most grocery stores carry a variety of Glory products, but not the hot sauce. For a while, I was able to find it at the Buford Highway Farmer’s Market. However, they stopped carrying it. I know I can buy it online, but I would have to buy a case of it. Thank you for your help. — Tracey Brabant, Roswell

A: Don’t worry, Tracey, you won’t have to deal with a case of hot sauce. Ingles, 5075 Peachtree Parkway, Norcross, 770-448-7876, carries Glory food products, including 12-ounce bottles of Glory hot sauce for $1 each. It must be popular because when I checked with the store, it had only three left in stock, with more on the way.

Q: I never liked oatmeal growing up, so my mother insisted I try Wheatena. I liked this tasty hot cereal as a kid and continued to enjoy it into my adulthood — until it became hard to find and I forgot about it. My grown-up kids like my oatmeal so much, and whenever they’re around I make it, and doing so always makes me think of Wheatena. I have trouble coming up with something good and nutritious to eat for breakfast, and would like to know where I can buy this. I prefer buying it in a store, where I can check the freshness date. Thanks for your help. — Gloria Maxwell, Milton

A: Wheatena, made of ground toasted whole wheat, has been around since 1879, and still enjoys legions of fans. You’ll find Wheatena at Publix, 885 Woodstock Road, Roswell, 770-552-4580. A 20-ounce box will cost you $3.23. The bright orange box is stocked on the top shelf at the end of the cereal aisle.

Q: My 86-year-old mother used to find Delsym Cough Relief Plus Lozenges. She and I cannot locate them in stores around us. She prefers the honey-lemon flavor, but will be delighted to obtain any flavor if we can find them locally. I am willing to drive in the metro Atlanta area to find them. Thank you for your help. — Susan Tilenis, Cumming

A: Susan, you'll find Delsym Cough Relief Plus Lozenges at Tuxedo Pharmacy, 164 W. Wieuca Road, Atlanta, 404-255-3022. A package of 16 lozenges costs $8.59. However, the only flavor I could find locally is cherry. If you would consider ordering some through www.amazon.com, then you'll find plenty of the honey-lemon flavor, and the price is not much more when you include shipping. A box of 16 Delsym honey-lemon lozenges costs $5.49.
