Success! Osem brand Israeli couscous

Finally I found Israeli couscous. And right at Graul's for only $1.40.

From the label:
"Israeli Couscous is a unique toasted pasta, produced exclusively by Osem
in Israel. Like regular pasta, Israeli Couscous is made from hard wheat and
water. But instead of being dried, Israeli Couscous is toasted in an open flame
oven. It has a rich, nutty flavor, it absorbs flavor easily, and the surface of
each pearl-shaped piece picks up sauces, reductions, and herbs."

It has actually been a big week or so for grain type foods. I found quinoa, wild rice, quinoa flour and farro all with in a number of days, all of which have been tricky to find in the past.
