Giveaway: JACEK Chocolate Couture Advent Calendar 2015

by Cindy

Christmas is coming at you a little bit earlier this year with the launch of JACEK Chocolate Couture’s second annual Advent Calendar. Last year’s calendar was the Cocoanista’s first at offering daily manifestations of fashion through chocolate in a calendar format and one that sold out within four hours of launching! Edmonton should already be familiar with Jacqueline Jacek, the fusion of her love for fashion and food coming together to create exquisite classic flavours to contemporary fusions with beautiful designs. I can guarantee that anybody who visits either JACEK locations (Sherwood Park or 104 Street) ends up leaving with a little treat for themselves or a for a lucky friend or loved one. Continue reading, there’s a giveaway at the end!

JACEK Chocolate Couture Advent Calendar 2015

JACEK Chocolate Couture Advent Calendar 2015 ($65) launched last week, the pre-order link available for newsletter subscribers only. This was one of the most exciting secrets that I’ve had to keep, although I did hint to followers that they needed to subscribe on my Twitter! Improvements to this year’s little gift: a rigid box hiding all the goodies and the inclusion of JACEK’s newest Bean-To-Bar line! At time of writing, there are only 187 calendars available for purchase, so quit reading right now and head to the online shop! Tricks, the link opens in a new window. The JACEK Chocolate Couture Advent Calendar will be available for pick up in stores or shipped on or after November 14, plenty of time for it to make its way to a loved one for December 1st or for you to just stare longingly at until day one begins.

In addition to purchasing the calendar online or at either JACEK Chocolate Couture storefronts, the calendars are also available for purchase at both Credo Coffee locations, and Provisions by Duchess Bakeshop.

JACEK Chocolate Couture Advent Calendar 2015

Last year was LET’S OM NOM’s biggest year, one my resolutions to become more focused on Edmonton’s growing food scene and to be more active in the community. As a thank you to my readers (you guys are amazing!), I held a giveaway for one of my 2014 JACEK Chocolate Couture Advent Calendars. The response was unreal. Edmontonians really love their chocolate, and in particular, JACEK Chocolate! This year, JACEK Chocolate Couture has graciously given me two Advent Calendars, one to give away on the blog and one for myself as a thank you. I’ve always believed that writing about food or about the amazing local businesses and the people behind them is never about free food or perks. It’s not my style! It makes sense then that I continue last year’s tradition and treat one more lucky reader!
