Anyone else find a problem buying couscous? I love this shit, but my giant ass supermarket that has like a solid 8 sqaure meters of shelfspace dedicated solely to pasta barely has a square foot dedicated to couscous, and it's almost always sold out.
Have you looked down the "ethnic" aisle? Lots of times when I can't find something, it's been stuffed into the ethnic aisle somewhere. Like tortillas. Why the fuck are they not in the bread aisle?

I fucking hate this shit more than anything, and it doesn't make it easier for them either as they have to jump all over the place for their shit.
Tortillas are in the bread aisle at all the stores I go to, hell, the tortilla section takes up like 1/4 of one side of the aisle. But I also live in Texas, so there's a large Mexican population so it makes sense.
I don't even get them from the bread aisle though, I just buy the fresh ones made daily by the little old Mexican lady running the tortilla maker near the deli.
It really is silly. Recently I went down the Indian aisle and was upset to see they were out of masoor dal. Later I happened to wander down the dried beans aisle and saw a shelf full of red lentils.
JUST PUT IT ALL IN THE SAME PLACE.
I eat whole wheat versions of any product I can. I can generally find couscous in whole wheat and many different flavor options anywhere.
My issue is always pearl couscous, the bigger kind. I think it's also called Israeli couscous. I like it a lot more, but I have a hard time ever finding it, and I literally never find it whole wheat.
I just want to eat the pearl wheat jew and they won't let me.
