Hmm, funny.  I only managed to find a 10-pack of the same.  Didn't see
anything about T-Y on them but then I didn't look all that much.  Where
would I find on the disc or packaging that they are T-Y?

I looked but didn't see anything larger than the 10-pack.  This was at the
Fremont Fry's.  Which one did you find the spindle at?
