I went by Hobby Lobby last night and they said they no longer carry them.

I didn't know they ever did carry them locally.

 

MOS is back in town, so he's probably your best bet :)

 

I've been real happy buying from ScienceBob online.

If you're desparate hobby lobby has them in the education section.  You have to buy a science kit of 6 exeriments but you'll have 'em.  It's in a zippered pouch kit-thing about the size of an old school lunchbox.  But no, they don't carry the blister packs of 2 tubes and lids any longer.

I've purchased from both before when I needed some, but it's been a while.

Well I'm not very local, but I have 400 or so in my inventory right now. I can have them at any Beaumont area event, or can send them with an area cacher headed toward Houston. $0.75 each.

Here's their list of science kits.  Do you know which one it is?

Thanks.

I see what you mean about desperate. That makes them $3 each. I only need one right now and I wouldn't mind paying that for a couple but I don't need six.
