Halvah in Boston, near downtown?

Hi Chowhounds,
Does anyone have any suggestions about where to find halvah in downtown Boston, or out the B or C branches of the Green Line as far as Packard and Coolidge Corners?

I know that the Watertown grocery store have it, but I need to get some by Friday and don't have time for the bus trip during the week (although I know that that's against the chowhound spirit of going any lengths for good food). Trader Joe's on Boyleston Street had some but it looked unappealing, was very squishy, and was "layered" with something dark - I assumed chocolate though I didn't read the label at the time. If they had some that was plain and firmer, at a different branch maybe, I would go for that.

Thanks for suggestions! I am looking for it as a Valentines Day treat to give someone who (sacreligously!) doesn't like chocolate.
