Paris in Toronto

So having returned from my trip to Europe where a good portion of my time was spent in Paris, does any one know where I can find the following:

1) Caramel au beurre salé - either the individual chocolate squares or the spread

2) Great chocolates - Lindt makes this white chocolate with almonds and apricots that sounds strange, but combines to create a nougat-type treat

3) Good purveyors of French cheeses for a decent price

4) Any specialty stores that carry French jams and food products

I am clearly in severe withdrawal from my trip and trying to prolong assimilation back into North American culture :) But I found that the quality of ingredients really made a difference. I am quite lactose intolerant, but could eat cheese and cream with no problems in Europe. I am hoping that I can still indulge in cheeses if I buy them imported from France. Has any one else found this to be true? Also, thanks in advance for any suggestions to my queries above!
