Advent calendars aren’t just for kids anymore. Why not treat yourself to a little gift before the festive season? Check out these gourmet advent calendars that will keep your palate happy until the holidays.

La Dépendance Café (available in-store only)

This advent calendar puts gingerbread cookies in the spotlight. Even better, the team at La Dépendance Café has put together everything you need to make this sweet treat even more satisfying with your morning coffee by offering no less than six different flavours that you can decorate (or not).

M. & Mme Chocolat

This is a great opportunity to discover the fine chocolate makers of M. & Mme Chocolat, located on Beaubien Street. With 25 unique creations, including chocolate candies, caramel-pecan bites, “mini palettes” in a variety of flavours and lots more, you’re sure to want to go back in January.

Juliette et Chocolat

Juliette et Chocolat needs no introduction, except maybe for their new advent calendar. In addition to the 24 chocolate candies, it includes little boxes you can put together like a house. You’ll have everything you need to build your own holiday village!

États de choc

A recyclable box made in Québec, graphic design by artist Charles Daoud and, of course, delicious and refined chocolates make this a calendar you’ll feel good about sharing. Some of these delectable chocolates are flavoured with spices, maple syrup or garnished with toppings. So much to discover!

Détaillants de Bières Spécialisées du Québec (DBSQ)

Here’s one for fans of Québec microbreweries and those curious to try new local beers. The box contains 24 different beers from 12 Québec microbreweries. You can set out on a voyage of flavours without leaving home!

Chocolats Andrée

This chocolaterie so loved by Montrealers offers an advent calendar that will please the most discriminating gourmet palates, but with an interesting twist. This year, Chocolats Andrée’s calendar is made entirely of wood, so you can keep it and fill it up again, year after year.

David’s Tea

In addition to the eagerly awaited 24 Days of Tea calendar that includes both classic and original infusions, this year, David’s Tea is offering a new one: their first-ever matcha advent calendar. In addition to 24 matcha teas, the calendar has matcha-infused chocolates as well as a little jar of matcha honey.

La Boîte du Chef (the Chef’s Box)

This is the ultimate advent calendar for foodies! Each day, you’ll discover a delicacy ranging from maple salmon rillette to truffle butter, Christmas jam, Québec cheeses and the ultimate delicacy for December 25: Chef Ferrer's famous foie gras.
