food grade non-latex fitted gloves

I'm trying to hound down some non-latex gloves that are sort of thick like the Thickster, Extra Thick with textured grip (which are not food grade). I need them for working with hard candy.
Thank you for any recommendations!

  1. I don't know about Thickster, but all restaurant supply places sell vinyl as well as latex. No textured grip though, restaurants go through them too fast and I'm sure that would raise the cost too high. Restaurant quality gloves are actually low-grade surgical gloves, so maybe check medical supply houses too.

      1. I found some food grade latex gloves at Smart and Final. They seem to work well.
