She said they don't have Sweetex in thier warehouse, (thanks JanH for the item number, it was the same) THey had the item number in the system still but was listed as discontinued!!! She had ordered it in the past for people so she was familiar with it. She told me she would do a little searching for me to see if it has changed names or something.

Have they renamed it? Is there another brand I should ask for? IF so, an item number would be great, apparently they need the item number to look it up faster.

HELP !!! edited to add: I live in KY could it just be our GFS? Anyone know any other place in KY to get it?

The lady called me back !!! THis info is for anyone in KY who needs sweetex. They don't carry it in their warehouse anymore.. BUT they can special order it from the vendor. 2-3 weeks for delivery. so order ahead of time. She said there is a new item number going to be assigned to it. Once i get my order i will post the item number.

price 77.99 for 50#

I have always have to "order" it - it only takes a couple of days usually though (even when they told me it would be a week or two) Glad you finally can get it!
