Food locator question for SoCal Mefites: Where (and what brand) can I buy a soy margarine, no dairy component, that comes in sticks, that is NOT Nucoa?

I am a picky (but good) baker. I like the Willow Run sticks for baking, even Kroger brand margarine works. I haven't been able to find those here, so I tried Nucoa, which meets my criteria. But something about Nucoa doesn't work. It has...an overly greasy mouthfeel. Sounds stupid when talking about sticks of fat, but Nucoa has that 'roof of the mouth coating' mouthfeel to it, and I think it changes the way the cookies I make taste. Nucoa is nasty and gross and I hate it.
I called Whole Foods, Sprouts, and have been to several stores with no luck. Is Willow Run sold somewhere out here? I live in Pomona but am willing to drive a little bit. A similar product? Help!
It needs to be:
1) All soy/vegetable- no dairy
2) in stick form - no spreads
3) not Nucoa
Thanks in advance!
