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

    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...

      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!

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

          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.

            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.

              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.

                  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
