Open doors 8-15 of our Chococo Advent Calendar for gift inspiration!
For each day of Advent, we are opening the doors of our virtual calendar for you to meet a Chococo team member & find out what their favourite Chococo Christmas product or flavour is. It may just help inspire you with gift ideas!
We are sharing daily pictures on our Instagram & Twitter pages but you can find weekly updates on our Facebook page and right here on our blog.
