Whole Foods has 'em. For larger amounts, look at amazon.

Easiest thing to do is get a wide-mouthed water bottle and put in 2 tablespoons chia seeds, lime juice, and water. Shake it for a little while to avoid clumping. The texture takes some getting used to.

Do you mean the texture after it sets for about 5 minutes? (they kind of gel up IIRC).

Yes, that's the texture. I've found that it's easier to drink with the lime juice.
