Tête de moine au chocolat

This afternoon a girlfriend with a home in Switzerland introduced me to tête de moine au chocolat that she carried back. Now I'm looking to buy this on my own stateside.
Where can I find it?
Here's the video I made of my first exposure to tête de moine au chocolat
based on products like this
A cheese shaver plus a chocolate ring mold
I suspect the 'cheese' in the video is just a molded mixture of white and dark chocolate. While tête de moine (monk's head) is a Swiss cheese that is typically shaved with this machine, the chocolate version is not a cheese and chocolate mixture.
This looks like a French source for the chocolate blocks
An LA cheese shop that seems to know something about this, though I'm not sure they carry the chocolate wheels
Gysi chocolate world, in Bern, may be the (sole?) maker of the swirled chocolate version.
You're better at searching than I am. Maybe I can just make my own chocolate plugs with that mold, but I'd still like to find a source for the chocolate formed and ready to go.
