    Superstore and T&T seems not to carry the Mama Instant Rice Vermicelli Clear Soup anymore.. They have the Mama noodles which comes in chicken, shrimp or pork flavors but no longer have the rice vermicelli anymore.

    Why have the stores stopped selling Mama Instant Rice Vermicelli Clear Soup? Where to buy them in Greater Vancouver?

    I used to eat these too. I haven't specifically looked but I'll keep an eye out. 88 Supermarket on Victoria Dr. would be a good place to check though.

    Thanks! Don't go by Victoria Dr much, but if I do go by, I will check it out.

    Quite a disappointment that the grocery stores stopped selling this product.

    Hey @Bill, I have been unable to locate this :(. 88 Supermarket did not carry it along with all the other Asian stores I frequent. They had instant vermicelli but other brands.

    The closest thing I found is the Mama Pho Instant Noodle for $0.59 cents a package which I found at a Vietnamese grocery store on Kingsway and Knight St called Sieu Thi Dong Thanh Supermarket. They did not seem to carry the Mama Vermicelli variety but I didn't ask them directly.

    Good find, milquetoast! Will check it out next time I'm in the area. A bit pricey though, I used to buy the Mama Instant Rice Vermicelli @ $0.32 cents a pack at Superstore. I have a feeling, since the floods in Thailand few years back, Mama Instant Rice Vermicelli being a Thai brand, has been discontinued. The floods affected the rice paddies.

    Hey! I just saw them at Pricesmart on Grandview Hwy today for $0.49 a pack, it's on the lowest shelf in the instant noodles aisle and it's next to the Mama Instant Pho that milquetoast posted above!
