Here are places where you can get Dutch chocolate initial letters, chocolate figures of Sinterklaas, and other Sinterklaas items. As these are seasonal, you probably won't find them listed out-of-season. A number of shops in the US are listed, as well as two in the Netherlands. If you are in the US and want Dutch chocolate letters or other food products, the US shops are the best choice.
