You can't - but golden syrup has the same fructose/sucrose composition and can be used as a substitute. The flavour is different though.

Maybe someone should bring it in and sell it on trademe. lol

Some supermarkets may have it, I have seen it up here in Countdown. Try Spotlight too or a specialist cake decorating shop. If all else fails, you can buy in on TradeMe - from a store in Hastings. I'll post a link in a tick.

Ps: don't use golden syrup, totally wrong - try creamed style honey instead.

I don't have a problem buying corn syrup.But it has been a while since I bought it so I'm can't remember which supermarket I buy it at - but I'm sure it's at New World. It's a clear liquid, normally top shelf near the artificial sweetners or near the treacle/golden syrups. Sometimes it is in a plastic jar, or there is an asian brand in a bottle.
