I have an awful time finding it! I'm diabetic and short grain and brown rice are the only types I'm allowed to have. Thanks for all the helpful suggestions on here. Now I know what to look for in the store.

Here's some more info on short grain rice varieties. Short Grain Varieties :: The California Rice Commission

When I was growing up we always had "pearl" grain rice. Next to impossible to find it anymore. Could be a west coast vs east thing. I've gotten used to using long grain but I still actively persue the short when I am in a different store or area.

I've never been to an Asian market and not found an entire aisle of all types of rice, including 50 lb. bags of short grain.

I saw short grain rice at Walmart today. It was up high on a shelf next to the quinoa (which is what I was there for ... I bet you could eat that too).
