Any suggestions? Located in the US, no places to buy dog food here besides grocery stores and Petsmart, so of course I'd be willing to order from online.

My wife uses it for her Yorkies...
You want a reward that can be consumed rather quickly...So they can keep their attention on you...or the task at hand...

Just a query ? Why the need for a larger size kibble ? I've never found size to be a problem - indeed, quite the reverse - when you have a small biscuit size available, if using as training rewards.
As Bob says ^, you need biscuits that can be consumed quickly, so as not to 'break the flow' of attention; and you can get more pieces in your pocket or treat bag if they are smaller. The bigger the piece of kibble, the more it works against those factors.
I find dogs will usually work for the tiniest pieces - and that then points up the difference even more when you want to particularly note some spectacularly good bit of work and switch to a 'high value' reward (chicken/sausage/cheese, whatever). If I make & use liver cake, I cut that up really quite small...

Now I have and do use a "kibble" like at the end of a Track...Or...Maybe sometimes for a "send out"...
This is not saying using "kibble" as a reward is right or wrong...because it all depends on a lot of variables such as the Handler...the Dog...the Weather...etc...
