Famous Chili Company


I leave in Mokena, IL and I can't find these anywhere. I used to be able to get them at Walmart in New Lenox but they stopped selling them. We talk to someone last year about where else to go and someone said they would get back to us. Still waiting. Anyone else who can help?
We love the 4-Star Chili. Until recently we have been buying it at Kroger in Paducah, KY. They tell us now they are no longer carrying it. Is there another distributor in Paducah, KY that sells it?
One of my favorite childhood memories is eating Famous chili in a bag of crushed Fritos with a plastic spoon for lunch that Korky had prepared. Wish I could have some now
