Lollipop molds? and Glucose

h

Hey everyone,
Im looking for a mold to make candy lollipops... I have seen a tonne of them at the Bulk Barn in all sorts of shapes for chocolate lollipops, but I need something that will hold up to the heat of hot sugar, and those will just melt..
Anyone know where I can get one? I dont care what shape.. classic round is good.

Also, my recipe calls for glucose... Where can I find straight glucose? I know you can get the tablets (for Diabetes) at the drug store, but I cant imagine that would work. I'm assuming it needs to be a liquid sugar.

Thanks!

      Oh, and Golda's has glucose as well. McCall's is another source for glucose.

      You can buy pure powdered glucose at NoFrills, in the baking section. If you want it in liquid form, regular corn syrup should do just fine for you, but if you're going to be making a syrup and boiling it down anyway, the powder should dissolve easily enough.

          Mine was in Scarborough (Sheppard/Kennedy), but I think it's one of those oddball things that just sits on the shelf looking unassuming if you know where to look for it - I'd be surprised if you couldn't find it at multiple locations, or even other grocery stores.

        i've found glucose, interestingly enough, at galleria... so there might be a surprising number of places that carry it now. i'm pretty sure i've also seen it at tutti frutti in kensington.

            Bulk Barn has glucose, too. It's just labeled as dextrose.
