Clear corn syrup

I went to 3 grocery stores in my part of town (west of Christie) and did not find clear corn syrup at any of them. Any tips for someplace that does stock it not too, too far away?

  1. have you tried the Korean grocery stores east of Christie along Bloor? ie. P.A.T., etc., believe it or not, they often carry the clear corn syrup bc it is used in making Korean desserts and chili paste

      I saw clear Karo at Highland Farms. I didn't buy it as it was HFCS and quite manipulated, like all corn syrups. I opted for Lyle's Golden syrup instead.

        I've been able to buy it at Loblaw's Bathurst/St Clair but you know I don't see any difference in using it or the regular corn syrup in recipes.

          I Goggled Divinity Fudge, and found that only 2 out of 8 recipes required white or clear corn syrup.
