Callebaut Gianduja source in Vancouver?

Does anybody know a place that sells Callebaut Gianduja chocolate in smaller chunks/pieces? The chocolate I am talking about is this one: http://www.chocolatesource.com/produc...

They used to offer this at a place called Yoka's in Kits. But when they closed I lost the source. Any ideas where to find it in town?

Thank you!

    if you are in BBY (Canada Way and Boundary), i would always depend on Charlies Chocolate Factory - they are an old family business from the pre-expo genuine Vancouver area days - and have always used Callebaut product that i am aware of.

    BTW - there was a discussion on this board about "vancouver food souvenirs" and several people were talking about "almond butter crunch"

    some people on the thread (link below) call it brittle but i think they are talking of diff product -- http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/792156

    well, the best ABC i have ever tasted was from Charlies - now that was a few years ago but maybe they still dip in your choice of dark / light choc.

    they also make very traditional European holiday molded hollows and solids (used to be tin molds with the silver lining - not sure how done now) ... and the BIGGEST bunny ever (he is made in several parts and the chocolatiers have to assemble him with more choc

    )

    there's also a location in coquitlam -- i used to find their "house" packaging a little predictable - but it's easy to adapt to your own standard.

        I think Gourmet Warehouse may have as well - it's been a while since I've been so not too sure.

          Once again, thank you for the tips! I picked up a nice 500 gram block today for around $10. I'm excited to have new sources!
