I'm looking for a reputable source of coarse-grained sugar to decorate cookies with.

There are these sugar cookies at Potbelly's Sandwich Works that are decorated with sugar that is large and coarse grained...almost the sugar equivalent of kosher salt. I've seen in on pastries at fancy bake shops too. I always thought it would be easy enough to find, but none of the grocery or gourmet stores I've been to seem to stock it.
I can find stuff online when I search for coarse sugar, but they don't seem to have good specifications, so it's hard to know if it's what I'm looking for. Is there a standardized name for what I'm looking for and where can I buy it? If you've bought something similar before, where did you find it?
Thanks for the help!
