...that carry house-made milk chocolate ginger?

I know, I know, it sounds like I'm asking for the chocolate equivalent of bologna with whipped cream, but my father really enjoys them, and hasn't had them for years! Ever since Sydney Bogg went belly-up, I've been searching for milk chocolate ginger around here, and haven't found any, save for one time at Gayle's chocolates in Royal Oak. I've been in there since, and even tried special ordering, and they just look at me like I'm crazy. I'm not saying I'm not crazy, but these do actually exist, and while they're certainly an acquired taste, I enjoy a couple when I buy them for my dad.

It'd really be nice to get him some for a surprise Christmas present this year, so if anyone out there has any leads, please be sure to list them here, since I'm willing to travel up to, say, one hour one way, to find them. Oh, and please don't suggest any mail order stuff. I have to try before I buy to know if they're any good or not. I only buy good, quality milk chocolate ginger, and from the dearth of it around here, it seems like that'll be the only way to find it.

Thanks in advance for the ideas, fellow 'hounds!
