    Beer-making stores will have it. It is called "corn sugar" and is used to carbonate beer.
    Oak Barrel on San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley has it.

      As a type 1 diabetic, I know I can load up on giant bottles of glocose tablets at any Walgreens. :)

        go with smarties! buy in bulk online...see this guy's blog:


        let me know if you need any links for buying smarties in bulk...but should be relatively easy...another option I looked into was getting bottle caps (I don't like the taste as much), since I had so much trouble controlling how many smarties i would just snack on!

        I don't know how prices are, but Le Sanctuiare (sp?) has all sorts of those things.

          Beer stores will have it in bluk and it should be fairly inexpensive by the pound. In the East Bay you can get Dextrose at Oak Barrel in Berkeley on San Pablo.
