It’s the time of year when young children everywhere in the U.K. are not only counting down to Christmas but also excitedly awaiting December 1st as this is the day that those small doors on the advent calendars start to be opened.
Now back in the day, a long time ago, when I was a little girl, advent calendars (tho still exciting) were a little boring compared to the ones in shops today. That’s because behind the doors of those old style advents was just a Christmas image and that’s all. Yup; no chocolate, sweets or fancy gift awaiting us behind the torn card, just a coloured image.
Well times have certainly changed over the many years. I do vaguely remember the introduction of chocolate advent calendars but I remember them being very expensive at the time and I definitely do not recall ever having one. (Or maybe my parents were just tight sods) Anyway these days advent calendars never have just a boring image behind the door. The majority bare a piece of shaped chocolate behind each and these can be purchased for just a pound each in many stores. Many of them come with familiar character images, such as the calendars from Kinnerton.
Kinnerton have lots of character calendars to choose from for boys and girls. As well as the advent calendars they also sell many character chocolates including selection boxes and the majority of their products can be found in supermarkets and store such as Poundland.
Izebella has one of their Trolls calendars which also came personalised. This option has now closed as it’s getting so close to the start of December but the Trolls calendars without personalisation are available pretty much everywhere.
Izebella loves Trolls at the moment and especially so Poppy troll. She has seen this calendar and her little face lit up. I cannot comment on how good the chocolate inside is as it’s not December 1st yet and I don’t believe in opening these early. However I have tried Kinnerton chocolate a few times and it’s not at all disappointing. Also the foil wrap in these calendars keeps the chocolates fresh! (I did always wonder how shops could sell them so early on)
Take a look at their other character chocolate products on the website which include Shopkins, peppa pig, simpsons and many more.
