I have used V&M products for some time[lizards and Frys} and thought they were pretty good stuff, but I have not seen them around recently. I have just heard it rumored that they are going through some corporate changes, and will be back strong soon.
I have used their fries and lizards for years. Recently I got a free sample of their new Chopsticks (Senko knock-off's) too and was very impressed. I plan on throwing their ringworms this year instead of the ZOOM 4" Deadringers. I love the fact that the V&M can be bought in bulks too.
