November 28th: Christmas 2012 Advent Calendars

In just 3 days time chocolate fans around the globe will be waking up with big smiles on their faces. Why the smiles!? Well of course it is the first day of the final month of the year - indeed believe it or not December will be soon upon us and that means just one thing - ADVENT CALENDARS-A-GO-GO!!!!!

Many a ChocolateMission fan has requested I review advent calendars before but I'm afraid I'm traditionalist and I cant bring myself to open one up before the date is due. However, what I am happy to do is to share what advent calendars we decided to go for here at ChocolateMission HQ! To be honest with you here at ChocolateMission we got sent a lot of different calendars so I've just selected what I think are the 'Best of British' and also 'Best of the rest(of the world!!)'.

This Hotel Chocolat The White Advent Calendar is a beautiful looking thing I have to say! The 125.0g calendar contains 24 Christmas themed white chocolate shapes - Christmas Trees, Santa, Reindeers ... you name it, they are all here! At £12.00 its a little more expensive than your average calendar but if you are a white chocolate fan willing to push the boat then this has to be a sure fire winner. Buy HERE.

The Hotel Chocolat calendar is very cool, but this Ritter Sport one is seriously, seriously awesome! This 400.0g calendar contains 24 mini sized Ritter Sport chocolates squares and is made up of 12 different flavours including many favourites: marzipan, milk chocolate, white chocolate, yogurt ,chocolate cornflakes - essentially all the good ones. Seeing which of these varieties we get each morning is certainly going to be entertaining and at € 8.99 value for money is going to be no issue! Buy HERE.

In a few days time I will post some pictures of what lay behind some of the doors! Make sure you let me know what calendar(s) you have this year over on twitter - @Chocmission
