    No problem! I was in a store today that sold Flavorite brand items as well but alas they had no Star Wars fruit snacks. :cry:

    Roundy's is a Wisconsin-based supermarket chain operating 154 stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois. Its stores operate under five different names: Pick 'n Save (not to be confused with Pic 'N' Save, a defunct discount chain purchased by Big Lots), Rainbow Foods, Copps Food Center, Metro Market, and Mariano's Fresh Foods. It may also operate some stores under the Ultra Mart banner.

    The company website can be found at the link below. It contains links to websites for each chain, where you can find store locators.

    Discovered an updated Food Club box today at Brookshires, which is an East Texas/Louisiana local chain. This new box has nutritional information on the front, and also has smaller overall contents (23g pouches instead of 26g) totaling 4.8 oz. It's also dated 2011 (instead of 2010) and comes with the blue pouches previously found in the Phantom Menace boxes. I'll add all this info and front/back images to the Food Club post above.

    In an effort to get caught up, I'm going to make place holders for the known remaining boxes, and add photos and info as I have time...probably have to be after Celebration VI.

    SHUR-FINE

    It appears there may be 2010 and 2011 versions of this brand. This is the 2011 box shown here. More details to come as they become available.

    New sizes have been found, as well liquid filled fruit snacks (sometimes called Erupters). However, in the case of Spartan, they do not use the Erupters name.

    Spartan 4.8oz (6 pouches) Clone Wars 2011
    Spartan 7.2oz (6 pouches) Star Wars (Erupters) 2012


    SPARTAN

    UNBRANDED 24-PACK (PHANTOM MENACE)

    Also found at Walmart, during the release of Episode I in 3D. These were typically found in carboard shippers at the corner of the cereal aisle. The shippers featured similar graphics. Intended to be a quick promotion, these contained the same Clone Wars shapes as all the other snacks. However, it did herald the arrival of the new blue wrappers.

    I've updated the first post with all new group shots.

    Also, I'm comparing notes with another collector, and it appears there are a few more boxes out there to hunt. Some may be older boxes that might be difficult to find. I'll post info as it comes to me.

    Right now, additional boxes to look for may include: Acme (part of the Albertson's family), Jewel, Richfood, Southern Home, and a 2010 version of Shur-Fine.

    Fellow Spy OneCardShy has discovered two new boxes at Tom Thumb grocery stores. A 10-pack and a 20-pack, featuring the Safeway Kitchens logo and Classic Star Wars artwork (but the same Clone Wars snacks inside).

    -Simon David
