No, but you should find it in the Yellow Pages. If you don't have the Yellow Pages, contact Teles for a free copy. (I hate the Super Pages directory.)

Look in the yellow pages, as it should be listed under "Ice" you can also get it from food suppliers.

you can always go to a grocery store and get it for free I use to work as a stock boy and when the truck came in the frozen containers were packed with it. I use to take it and stick in bottles of pop and close the cap. Its kind of like a firework. oh ya dont blow of your hand if you do this. ;)

I've always got it at the ice cream stores, like Baskin Robbins. Give the guy 5 bucks or so and they'll usually let you haul it away. Be careful with the stuff. I've used it mainly for fog machines...blow the fog over the dry ice in a basket and it cools the fog, so it will hold on the floor for a long time. Then, what's left over is fun to put in toilets at parties.
