Advent Calendars?

Finnegan Dec 3, 2007 07:28 AM

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

    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?).

        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.

          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.

            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.

              Honey Bear Delicatessen on Sheppard between Bayview and Yonge had some German advent calendars when I was there 2 weeks ago.

                there's a german woman with a table of german christmas stuff and advent calendars outside st. lawrence market, sort of on your way to the entrance on the lower level i think.

                  I got my advent calendar from Laura Secord for $10. I was eyeing the Lindt one at Costco but it was $18.99!

                  Mainly Cheese in Ajax for those in the east end, Denningers in Hamilton for those out west. I've also seen Lindt's at Costco...
