Zingerman's also sells it on-line but I also buy it at Surfas in Culver City. I use it mainly with pork, it never would have occurred to me to use in a dessert.

The best fennel pollen, for the money, that i've found was at a small spice store in Westfield, NJ. Luckily, they have a webstore!

Don't think there is a substitute for fennel pollen. It is unique "taking the fennel seed, sweetening it and then intensifying it a hundred times" to quote the spicehouse website.
It goes a long way. Saveur magazine says you can use it on chicken and sea food, and pierino says he uses it on pork. It is a spice worth having around.

I am wrong there is a replacement in this recipe - just read it Amanda and Merrill said
"If you can't get fennel pollen, don't sweat it -- just add ground anise seed or fennel seed in the same proportion. - A&M"
