Dutch Candy, Cards and More

from Other Sources

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 shops in the Netherlands, and two in Canada. If you are in the US and want Dutch chocolate letters or other food products, the US shops are the best choice.
