  1. HoneyBear sells them.

    On Sheppard between Yonge and Bayview.

    Make sure you buy a few of their cabbage rolls while you are there - awesome stuff!

    1. Brandt Meats just over the Etobicoke line in Mississauga always has 'em.

      1. International Food Depot on Jutland in Etobicoke, it's a full-on German grocery store and carries all kinds of Austrian and German chocolate (Mozartkugeln, Milka, etc...)

        1. Not all Mozartkugeln are created equally, though. The one available here does not compare to the best in Austria. Unfortunately, I've never found the great one here.

            That'd depend on which ones you're buying. The most common commercially produced ones in Austria are made by a company called Mirabell. If you get those here it's likely the exact same thing you'd get in most stores in Austria. See the link for more specific information:

              And it's the Mirabell brand of Mozartkugeln (now apparently owned by Kraft!) that are the lousy ones, "the most common commercially produced ones in Austria..." as you've noted. Anyone who's had Mozartkugeln made by the smaller Austrian producers (the packaging for which are very similar) will notice the difference immediately.

                Thank you all bunch of life savers !

                  You said 416 or east: try Vienna Fine Foods, 1050 Birchmount just north of Eglinton.

                    If you're downtown I'd be willing to bet that Reither's Fine Foods near Church & Wellesley has what you're looking for. I believe the owner is Austrian.

          2. I saw these yesterday at Domino's. That's in the St. Lawrence Market (south market), lower level, at the very north end of the building. They were near the cash register.

            1. Just found the real ("echte") thing at Daferner's, a European deli in Erin. They're made by Reber http://www.reber-spezialitaeten.de/we... and the quality of both the chocolate and the marzipan are far superior to that of the mass-produced Mirabelle brand.

              Turns out they're distributed by Husky Food Importers & Distributors of Woodbridge. www.huskyfoods.com

                Believe Brandt carries that brand, as do others around the GTA. Erin's not exactly close nor much of a destination, food-wise.

                1. re: Kagemusha

                  Depends what you mean by destination-worthy food. Small family farms providing organic eggs, naturally raised meats, and vegetables in season constitutes a great destination for many.

                  1. re: Tatai

                    Not exactly next door. If Husky's distributing Reber candy, then what you're after should be way closer than Erin. Better advice might be to contact Husky for GTA retailers, no? Erin's not got a lock on "local," either.

              2. Vienna Meats on Birchmount Road, just north of Eglinton Ave E has a wide selection of Mozartkugeln and many other sweets.

                1050 Birchmount Rd
                Scarborough ON, M1K 1S4

                1. All of this being said, the Reber Mozartkugeln are much better than the Mirabell. But the very best are the originals -- made by Fürst in Austria -- that are probably not exported. These carry the label "The original Salzburg Mozartkugeln."

                  I was actually misled by the "real/echte" label on the Reber brand. They're good, but it's been years since I've been to Austria and had the "originals."

                  1. Swiss Pastries (a chain in Ottawa) carries these at their Carlingwood mall location, 2121 Carling Ave.
