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.

    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.

      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.
