Wow, I was sure I'd be the first to bring up raisins but is well covered.

I'll add certain Mexican foods in a mass market store. The crema and queso may not be anywhere near the Dean's and Kraft stuff. There's a grocery near me that has dedicated a small island cooler... in between the bakery cakes, the fresh flowers, and produce.
Tortillas may be in more than one place, too. Nationally or regionally distributed manufacturers may have some room in the bread aisle or perhaps an endcap. The good, local stuff wrapped in paper and delivered daily isn't in the vicinity. Protip: If you've checked the expected sections for tortillas but still can't find these superior staples, look for a low shelf in front of the deli or butcher cases.

I no longer answer this question truthfully.
