You can get King's Syrup from Carriage House online:

I highly recommend it, and the other great things they sell on their website. Mix that syrup with walnuts and cream cheese and spread it on celery for a quick and easy and fabulous party treat.

I believe you can purchase it at most of our local grocery stores.

From what I hear, only select areas of the country still have it in local stores, and those are mostly in the NE. The Carriage House Online Store is open 24/7 and even ships internationally.
