I finally decided to stop at a lowly tiny Food Lion grocery store next to my house. I asked a stock lady, and she said that every thanksgiving someone asks about it and that they didn't have any. Just as I turned to leave, she mentioned that I could check their McCormick seasoning area of the regular spice section and LOW AND BEHOLD there it was. It's not the Sun Luck brand, but by golly I got some. Funny thing is what can you imagine these other people are using this Chinese Five Spice for...? ;)

It really sucks living in a podunk town.

Looking forward to the cook tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe!
Ha! Dude, that is funny. For the rest of you that are stuck in Podunkdom,
just use allspice.
