Advent Calendars?

Anyone know where I can buy advent calendars (the german one's if possible)...if you don't know, they're calendars with a piece of choclate behind each of the doors leading up to Dec 25th. Thanks

  1. I believe they are selling them at Loblaws and (more expensively) at Shoppers. I don't think they're the german ones (what are german advent calendars?).

      Made in Germany...a silly famly tradition...apparently cheap german chocolate is better than cheap Canadian chocolate...go figure

      1. When I was a tot we used to get them at Edith's Delicatessen in Richmond Hill in the Richmond Heights Plaza. I don't know if it's still (moved in 1994) but it was a good German deli.

        And they were good chocolates too - not the ordinary bland milk chocolate.

        1. Does Lindt count as German? They have large Lindt calendars at Summerhill Market. Grumble's at Main & Danforth has European chocolates and calendars but not sure if the calendars are European.

          290 Main St, Toronto, ON M4C, CA

          Summerhill Market
          446 Summerhill Ave, Toronto, ON M4W, CA

          1. You can get Lindt advent calendars at Sears at the Eaton Centre. They have a small boutique on the lower level. Not German, unfortunately (Swiss), but delicious nonetheless.
