Chocolate Advent calendar north of Boston?

Any idea where I could find one of these with good chocolate inside? I'm thinking of something that has a little window for each day with a tasty chocolate treat.

  1. They may be sold out already, but Harbor Sweets in Salem does an Advent calendar - very good chocolates indeed!

    1. Try Winfrey's Fudge in Rowley, Beverly, or Newburyport.

          Now you got me thinking I need a couple of these, too. Is Winfreys in Stoneham at the set of lights right before the 128 exits?TIA

            Yep, that's it- right before Redstone Plaza as you are heading South on 28.

                Yeah my 3 year old is ALL about Christmas this year and I figured there's no better time to teach him that he doesn't have to settle for chalky drugstore chocolate :-)

                  Our two little ones are hounds in the making. For Christmas, I got them aprons and kid sized kitchen tools. I also got them STone Soup cookbook- which is supposed to be good for kids. They have been helping me make pizza for ages. When we have pasta, they have to put on the grated cheese themselves- and are angry because I won't let them use the box grater to grate the cheese. They were at my house at Thanksgiving, and it was wonderful to see them enjoy the meal- and eat all of their vegatables.

      2. While not north of Boston, Phillips Candy House had them when I was there this past Saturday. They're on Morrisey Blvd in Dorchester.

        1. if you want to order it online Lindt chocolate has the best one!!

          1. They sell them really cheap at Trader Joe's. Not fabulous chocolate or graphics though.
