Black Black Chewing Gum (Northern VA?)

I bought this small case of Black Black (caffeinated) chewing gum from Japan a while back and wanted to get a refill of it. Inside the plastic container are small, hard, rectangle pieces of black black gum (not sticks). I was wondering if any places around here sold it? I've looked at H Mart and Grand Mart, but can't find it. I remember Grand Mart at a time stocking the sticks, but I was just there like 2 weeks ago and didn't see it.

Any help would be appreciated (my boyfriend loves the convenient little container--he keeps it at his desk @ work and it's a great alternative to coffee).

I've attached a picture of the canister thing for reference.

    1. Don't know if it's the exact same gum, but I bought something quite similar for my sister, thinking it was the same as the old Black Jack licorice gum....turns out definitely NOT. And, it was Japanese. Found it at Border's Books - believe it or not - a couple of weeks ago.
