Millefiori candy (sticky candy) in the U.S. or Canada?

 I am doing a glass project where I need to find a certain kind of candy inspired by the glass process of millefiori. Sticky candy, a brand in Australia and a few other countries, uses this technique but none of the designs work for me and I don't think they ship to the U.S. or Canada. Anyone know what this candy is called/ other producers of it? Thanks!

I believe the candy making process is called "pulled sugar". The final candies seem to have a few names (depending on the maker), but I found you a link to a Florida store called Sugar Sugar. They were featured on Food Network's "Unwrapped" and I recall seeing them there.

This link will show you a video of them making the candy on the FN program.

Here is a link to their website. They have an e-store so you can order from them, plus they do custom orders. They simply call their creations "lollies".

I hope this has answered your question. :)

Thanks for your help!
You're welcome. Glad to help.

If you don't need any further help, perhaps you could pick a 'best answer'? It also marks your question as answered.
Who says you can't make your own mil. candy? wink wink nudge nudge?
I'm thinking four pieces of licorice twists. 2 red, 2 black (look up how to do the pattern with FIMO) Also, wouldn't a candy cane be an example?
