I need them soon. I don't have time to order. Where can I find them? I need to use them for a cake decorating contest where I have to use candy.

Places I have found it in the past:

Sav-on/RiteAid/Longs Drugs (they have a lot of candy types)
Sweet Factory (in a lot of malls)
Target/Walmart/KMart

THANKS! I'll check out Target and Kmart since that is closer to my house. Walmart unfortunately doesn't have it.

if your mall has a candy store they generally have it.

I looked EVERYWHERE for it one time -- you'll never guess where I stumbled upon it! It was hanging on one of those spinning wire racks in my local gas station/quick store!

Cracker Barrel! And also if you have a mall that contains a little bulk candy store...they are usually there too.

I would like to buy some also. I can get it online but they want $10+ for shipping.

Try Whole Foods, Central Market, or World Market. They have it in the candy section. I got mine at Central Market.

It's very useful for decorating halloween stuff.

I am looking for black shoestring laces to use as "strings" for a guitar cake I am making this weekend. 

If I can't find it, I'll use cording from Michaels, but I would prefer that everything be edible.

AI get black licorice laces at the candy store in the mall. You might consider spaghetti (uncooked) if it is long enough. It can be tinted with food color.

large groceries (like Walmart) generally carry it, especially this time of year.
