Ever since I was a child, one of my favourites things about Christmas was the first day of opening our advent calendars. No chocolate had ever tasted as good as those tiny little moulded pieces, lodged inside cardboard squares, and with every passing day that chocolate seemed to taste better and better. Even now at thirty eight years old, I have an advent calendar every year and although, admittedly, they are a little grander these days, they take me right back to being a small child, wolfing down a chocolate before breakfast.
Over the years I’ve had countless advent calendars, including those filled with beauty products or even alcohol, but I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about one as I am The Grand Advent Calendar from Hotel Chocolat. I think everyone knows I’m a huge fan of Hotel Chocolat and although at £68 this calendar is more than most would usually spend, you get is much for your money!
Each door has a different surprise, from Salted Caramel Vodka, crackers filled with pecan praline, a meltingly-smooth Hazelnut Bûche, macadamia and coconut snowballs and Hotel Chocolat’s super-smooth, award-winning Cocoa Gin. And it is absolutely HUGE!!!!
With two sides bursting with treats, this is so much more than your standard advent calendar. It’s the most amazing way to spoil yourself this December, or to give a loved one to enjoy – although I’m really not sure that I’ll be sharing!! I have a feeling this is going to be this years must have advent calendar and in that way, I’d advise buying now ready for December!
