Where Is Corn Syrup in Grocery Stores?

Corn syrup can be found amid the baking ingredients at some grocery stores, as many candy, dessert, jelly, and jam recipes call for it. Other stores group it with the hot cereals and maple syrup. We contacted Kroger, Publix, and Walmart to find out exactly where they stock corn syrup in their stores.

Whether visiting one of these three chains or another grocery store, it’s a good idea to contact your local store for specifics, as each store’s layout may vary. You can also check the store’s mobile app — many grocers now have mobile apps which allow you to search for an item and see whether it is in stock and in which aisle it is located.
