Almond Roca. Where can I find this candy?

Hi Chowhounders -

An unconventional question, but to a group of people who can definitely tell me the answer. After all, you all helped me find bacon cupcakes earlier!

I have a request from friends who live abroad to bring a tin of Almond Roca - the toffee candy that is dipped in chocolate and rolled in chopped almonds. It is typically found in a pink tin and wrapped individually in 1" logs in gold foil.

I've searched a number of stores and candy shops in search of this treat to bring with me, but so far I've not been successful. Any one know where I can by a tin of these goodies?

Many thanks.

Bacon Cupcakes

Went with Butch Bakery. Met David Arrick, the founder and owner, when I picked up the "Driller" cupcakes. He's a great guy and the cupcakes were delicious.

Bacon Cupcakes

Ok, I know this might sound crazy, but I was watching a food show where the topic was bacon - and all the crazy ways you could consume it.

One of the more interesting ones was "bacon cupcakes." In its most basic form, these appear to be regular cupcakes with frosting and a sprinkle of bacon bits on them. Anyone know of a place in Manhattan or Brooklyn that might sell these concoctions.
