I need some small, square/rectangular, rainbow-colored candies.

I'm trying to recreate this rainbow mosaic cake (by Cakes of Our Lives in Melbourne), and need candies for the sides. The best US possibility I've found is these rainbow tropical gum tabs from Sweetworks/Oak Leaf, but they seem to be available online only in bulk quantities, for use in mall gumball machines and the like. I need suggestions for either (1) other ways to source those chiclets (for instance, anyone know a large brick-and-mortar candy emporium that might be able to do a one-off mail order?), or (2) alternative brightly-colored square/rectangular candies that I could use to create the same effect.

Monies and no worries

I've ordered some plastic parts from someone in Australia; what is a standard receipt form he could fill out — online to PDF or otherwise? It's a small private transaction, so VAT doesn't play into it, but I do need a receipt for my project accountant.
