Spicy/Flavored Mayo advice

Trader Joe's Wasabi Mayo packs quite a punch!

where can I find those ultra sticky/glutinous/stretchy chew balls that the old fellow in the film Tampopo nearly choked on

I'm sure Mitsuwa will have them.
I used to travel to Japan on business and a client there told me that during the Mochi Festival, the news reports tally the number deaths due to choking - much like our news reports track the number of highway deaths during a holiday weekend.

Where can I find mutton

The latest Payless Foods flyer has "Lean imported use like chivo mutton" listed at $1.69/lb. There's one in Sun Valley at 8025 Vineland plus many others around the county. Disclaimer: I haven't been to that store or tried their mutton, I just saw it in their ad. I usually go to the Payless on Peck Road near my work for cheap fruit and vegies - they have sweet corn this week 5/$.99
