I have a tradition with a friend: we exchange advent calendars every year at Thanksgiving because that's the only time we ever get to see each other. Those generic paper advent calendars with the bland chocolate got old a long time ago and I'm always on the hunt for interesting ones.
Are there any chocolate shops in Manhattan that might have some unique/gourmet advent calendars around the holidays? Or any food markets/gourmet food stores that carry interesting ones? Other than Whole Foods, I find that the only food stores I frequent in NYC are Jewish/Kosher places, so I'm not too familiar with other markets or stores.
Would love some suggestions.
