Sponge Candy in Bay Area?

I'm hoping there are some candy/sweets hounds who can help me out. My mom grew up in Buffalo, NY and has shared her childhood love for "sponge candy" with our whole family. Sponge candy is a carmelized sugar center that gets aerated and then covered in chocolate. It has a nice a crunch but melts away when eaten. The food seems to be quite specific to Buffalo, although occasionally available in other places. I'm hoping to find a local source. Otherwise I'm restricted to having it shipped in and making it a special occasion order. I've also seen recipes online, but haven't ever tried to make it. Any tips on where to find it around here would be most welcome!
