Marzipan in Chicago?

Anyone know where I can purchase some marzipan? I don't want to make it from scratch.

    Any Cost Plus store has it, in bars for cooking, and pig shaped (for good luck) or fruit shaped (for treats.

        I think almost any major supermarket (like Jewel) carries it, either the Solo brand in a can or the Odense brand in a tube. Both in the baking section.
