where to buy chocolate eclairs?

hey

I remembered a long time ago when Tim Hortons used to sell chocolate eclairs but for some reason they stopped selling them. They were the only place I know that sold these but since they stopped selling them, I don't know where else to look. are there any other places that sell chocolate eclairs that are similar or better than the ones at Tim Hortons?

A french bakery would give you the most authentic experience . . .

The doughnut style that Tim Horton's had were good. Some grocery stores have these in the refrigerated bakery area.

All the supermarket bakeries have chocolate eclairs.
I like the ones from my local Longo's - Theirs is a bit expensive ($1.75 or so), but they use real cream.

Whipped cream filling in the chocolate eclairs is not the same for all.
Real dairy cream is expensive... A lot of places uses low % or other subsititues and fillers, including Tim's and Country Style.

for example: the whipped "cream" in a can... that stuff can't be real. Or the pre-whipped whipped cream in a tub / plastic container.
