Where can I buy Amira tamarind candy in the DC metro area?

I've had a very rough week, and the only thing that will cheer me up is my favorite Thai tamarind candy. I'm aware that I could order it online, but I'd rather get it from a local vendor if possible. Does anyone know of a store that carries it?

I see that you are in No. VA. You could try Ban Thai Oriental Food Market on Richmond Highway or Duangrat Market on Leesburg Pike.

You might try some of the markets at Eden Center. Although the Center is primarily Vietnamese, many of the vendors sell products from all over southeast Asia. I have purchased tamarind candies from various stores there, although I don't believe I've ever had this particular brand.
