Anyone know where to buy it? I live in Glendale.
There used to be a great Russian chocolate store in the minimall with Zankou chicken, I don't know if they moved or went out of business. I saw quite a bit at Jon's market.
There's a russian market next to the Red Square restaurant in encino (in the same minimall) -- it probably has russian chocolate (it has Russian everything else -- like jams, alcohol, and a russian bakery).
Red Square is at
17209 Ventura Boulevard
Encino, CA 91316
otherwise, try the internet!
I assume you mean the giant Russian assortments given as New Year's gifts? If so, go to Karabagh Market one block west of Victory and Woodman in Van Nuys. As you enter, stop, turn right, look up. Another possibility would be Olive Marketplace on Oxnard and Bellaire.
There is a little market on Los Feliz--on the same side of the street as an Indian Market and across the street from the big COSTCO parking lot that sells Russian chocolate bars. Sorry I can't remember the name of the market.
Also at the corner of hillhurst and (oops, I can't remember, Franklin?) next to Tosa Express (which is 1906 hillhurst) in Silverlake, there is a little market that has bins of those little russian chocolates that are individually wrapped and sold in bulk. Each chocolate type has a different picture: squirrel picture is my favorite, has walnuts.
Out of curiosity since I have a Russian market near me -- is there anything special about Russian chocolate?
ALso check out the Jon's market chain. They usually have large and good sets of chocolate - russian and some made in Germany and France for the Russian market.
