I don't have any trouble getting Yves products here in (metropolitan)
North Carolina.  While I haven't seen it widely in mass-market grocery
stores, it's available in several health food stores.  But, if you're on a
trip, it's a lot easier to find a Food Lion or Harris Teeter than a HFS.  
My guess is that there aren't enough vegetarians in the general population
here for specialty products to be available in the big supermarkets.
