Although we are still only in October, various national press titles have been reviewing the best Advent Calendars for 2020 and, we are delighted that our Classic Advent Selection Box has featured twice in such reviews already.
Both our Advent Selection Boxes are available to pre-order online (or for shop collection if you want to pick one up at your local Chocolate House), for delivery from 20th November.
For those of you unfamiliar with our chocolates, we can only make and despatch our Advent Selection Boxes much closer to the start of Advent as the first chocolates in the box are fresh, so have a shorter shelf life, and need to eaten in a specific date order!
BBC Good Food published their online review on 16th October of the best Advent Calendars for 2020. They reviewed lots of different categories including gin, whisky, tea, jam (yes jam!), popcorn and also chocolate - they decided on their top 5 chocolate advent calendars, of which we were one, and this is an extract from what they had to say about our Advent Selection Box:
'A decadent treat for chocolate-lovers, this Advent calendar from Chococo contains a wide range of festive flavoured truffles. More in the style of a truffle box instead of a traditional calendar with doors, this is a mature option suitable for adults...Our favourite flavours include the gingerbread caramel...For a boozy kick, try the tawny port & fig and spiced rum. These high-quality chocolates are presented in a gorgeous red box with a frosted sleeve indicating which day is which.'
Our Advent Selection Box has also been featured in the Indy taste test review of the 'Best Chocolate Advent Calendars for Adults' published on 7th October 2020 and this is what they had to say about our box for 2020:
'We love the chocolates this Dorset-based husband and wife duo create at Chococo. Everything is fresh, handmade and only the best, local ingredients are used – from gorgeously rich Dorset cream to fabulous local honey, so it’s no surprise that the advent selection is a real treat too. With Christmassy flavours, such as ginger rush, where chunks of sweet, crystallised ginger are encased in dark chocolate, or the award-winning gingerbread caramel, which oozes with festive spiced runny caramel. We also found our own festive cheer in the Salcombe sundowner thanks to the Salcombe gin and pink grapefruit impregnated ganache, and in the tawny port and fig. But with 25 different chocolates to try, you’ll certainly find your own favourites. As ever, things are beautifully packaged and make a perfect present in the run up to Christmas. We’d recommend you pre-order now as it will sell out fast.'
