Where to Buy Gym Chalk?

I bought some dust free chalk sticks from my local grocery store; smashed it up, and proceeded to use it. It did not seem to stick to my hands as well as “gym chalk” sticks to my hands. Is this the same thing? Do I need to get my hands moist for a decent sticking? Where can I buy the pre-mashed gym chalk in bulk?
