Happy Holidays Chocolate Lovers!
I was very excited to see a Vosges Chocolate advent calendar. I haven’t done an advent calendar since I was really young and that was the kind with the little pop out windows and tiny pieces of chocolate that tasted only a little better than the cardboard they were hidden behind. But what did I care? I was a kid. Chocolate was chocolate! Those were more innocent times.
Luckily this isn’t your average kiddy advent calendar! The box is huge and has 25 different compartments for each day before Christmas. Twas the Night Before Christmas is written on the sides of the door panels and everything is purple in honor of Vosges’ signature color.
As soon as I opened the doors to the box I was a little disappointed to find an entire list of all the chocolate contained in each box. For me, the point of an advent calendar is to be surprised by what you get each day. In the future it might be better to have the label inside the box for after you open it to save some of the surprise.
But surprises aside, I was very excited to see what I got for the first day.
(By the way, if you're still interested, the Vosges store in SoHo is still selling their advent calendar boxes and at a discount. I'm sure you won't be sad that you have to catch up.)
