    I'm from Alabama, heart of grits country, and I must admit, I never aquired a taste for them! They seem lovely in theory, but the texture is just not for me!

    And here I was thinking that grits were a southern classic! Love mine with an egg and some cheese scrambled in...or in place of rice with a little gravy [​IMG]

    Oh Earth Fare is the bestest grocery store ever! I wish we had a whole foods around here though.... I bet whole foods or fresh market would have them?

    We do have a Whole Foods but it is quite a drive and we never hardly go that far.

    I found some on amazon - Arrowhead Mills. Also they have some Bob's Red Mill ones but they were more expensive. I put the AM ones in my basket.
