Alphabet noodles?

Really of interest only to you UK people, because I suspect import costs would be ludicrous...

I was just talking with Mum, and out of the blue she asked me "Do you remember when you were little and we'd go to Leeds and I'd buy those little alphabet noodles for your soup?"

I remembered the noodles, but not the Leeds connexion. "Why?" I asked. "Did you want some?"

Mum would indeed like alphabet noodles for her soup, so I said I'd try to find some for her.

These are the little vermicelli-thickness pasta letters, similar to those in Heinz's Alphabetti Spaghetti™, not the big chunky pasta letters from Annabel Karmel or similar.

O wise readers, do any of you know a UK source for ickle pasta letters?

ETA: (since ciphergoth seems to have been confused by the original post) what I'm after is the dried pasta letters, not the already-in-sauce-in-tins kind.
