It can be found at any baking supply place.....should be real easy to find in Jersey. Its not usually real cheap so you may want to learn how to make it.

If I had to use sugar candy I'd make it my self.
If you get it from a source that makes other stuff like candy etc. it is possible it may have some other stuff in it that would be harmful to your girls.
Just my opion.
