The 25 treats we have in store for you this year are from collaborators across California. We’ve made 1500 Advent calendars this year (our most ever!) from 18 collaborators (also our most ever!), who are stretched outside the SF Bay Area from Sebastopol to Los Angeles (another first!). And this year, we invite you to follow along with our Daily Advent Calendar Treat Reveal. Learn more about the maker and the story behind your chocolate. And in a few cases, order a few more of the ones you like the best.
We’ve packed sparkling gold and crimson chocolate-filled treat boxes just for you; all patterned, ribboned, and ready to share and re-use. Our goal was to make each tiny box feel like a present. Gift some earrings, store precious ornaments, or use them as part of your holiday decorations year after year. We hope they’ll be the gift that keeps on giving.
Nothing about our annual Advent calendar makes logistical or business sense. In fact, many would say the whole idea is just nuts (and caramels! and fruits! and ganache!). We think a lot about our chocolatier collaborators, and we appreciate that they work extra hours during a busy holiday season to craft each treat. Each of the 25 treasure boxes is packed by the intrepid hands of our product makers in our San Francisco Mission District factory—one for every day in December leading up to Christmas, with an extra-special surprise on Christmas Day. (That is, unless you have one of the first limited-edition 2019 Double Advent Calendars with two serving of treats per day.) And finally, every calendar is hand numbered and hand tied with a shimmering gold or silver bow.
