Gumdrop Tree

I need some of those plastic candy/gumdrop Christmas trees. Does anyone know where I can get them in quantity? (more after the jump)

You know what I'm talking about... the little plastic tree that your grandmother had on top of the (insert flat surfaced furniture of choice) from which you would pick all of the (insert favorite color of choice, orange for me) candy gumdrops when you visited her during Christmas season. If you don't know, look at:

I need/would like to buy about 50 as gifts for Christmas party guests, but my Google-fu has failed to turn any retail/wholesale sources up. Can anyone help?

I don't think you'll get them for $0.99.

Walter Drake or Vermont Country Store have them. You might try the dollar stores or places like Walgreens once it gets closer to the holidays.

My girlfriend went hunting for you and found these but doesn't have a MeFi account. It's available in bulk, and $4.05 each. (Or 12 for $28.)

Wow, MeFi never disappoints! Thanks to all of you, you're outstanding!
