États de choc
Inside États de choc’s advent calendar, there’s not only one but two surprises to enjoy each day from this very popular chocolate confectioner. As their web page says, expect warm childhood memories to come flooding back when you bite into their unique blend of flavours. Another plus? The tasteful design was created by Québec artist Catherine D’Amours.
