ISO chocolate-covered pretzels

I know I could easily make these myself, but hubby has a new-found love of these and I'd like to be able to pick some up occasionally.
I'm looking for high-quality chocolate, and preferably the large pretzel rods, so the kind you can get at Bulk Barn or the grocery store aren't what I'm looking for.
I figure there must be some chocolate shops around that make these. Any sightings?
Thanks, you two! I ended up picking up a can of them at Godiva, just because I was walking by one this weekend. They are the twists rather than the rods, but hubby is plenty happy with them. While Godiva chocolate is not usually my thing, it works just fine for this need. Many, many levels above the "Flipz" crap you can get in the grocery store. So thanks again! I'll check out the other locations when I'm in those neighbourhoods.
You might try the Chocolate Messenger on Bayview S of Eglinton...they have lots of interesting stuff...
For something a little different, have you ever tried the caramel and chocolate covered pretzels at Starbucks? I know... Starbucks. But they bring them in from Olivier's Candies in Calgary:
I have a weak spot for them. It's basically a big, salt-specked pretzel rod, dipped in chewy caramel and then coated with smooth milk chocolate. Divine!
And, in case your husband likes chocolate and peanut butter, the chocolate peanut butter pretzels from Trader Joe's are also a personal favourite. (I know, I know... No T Joe's in Toronto. Sorry!)
