How about french fried onions, then?http://images.calorieking.com/branding/ck/runtime/updates/91.jpg
Although they might be battered, I am not sure.
If yes (or a starting place to look, anyway), it seems like they kept them in the grocery store near the canned soup or green beans (most popular use is to top a green bean cassarole). Maybe in the salad dressing section next to the croutons?
It seems to me they would be near the bacon bits (salad topping), shoestring potatoes or croutons, because they are all salad or soup toppers.
