Any ideas where to get zucchero granella (a thick sugar sprinkle) online or in NYC?

I brought two boxes of Paneangeli Zucchero Granella from Italy this year and I love it on top of simple cakes and cookies. Such a nice crunchy texture. Did a quick online search and couldn't find it for purchase. Any ideas? It's sugar that looks a lot like the antacid Brioschi, if that means anything to you.

  1. You could also go to a local bakery that uses it and ask where they got it. Sorry for the double post, something went wrong.

    1. It is called coarse sugar and is usually available at baking/cake decorating suppliers or you could get Turbano raw sugar--it's golden color but same texture.
