Christmas is just around the corner and I’m a big fan of pre-Christmas gifts. You know what I’m talking about. It’s the kind of gift that you give to yourself while you’re actually out shopping for others. Self-gifting. It does miracles, really. My first self-gift this year? A Jacek Advent Calendar.
Jacek Chocolate Couture, based in Sherwood Park, offers handmade chocolates that merge art and chocolate all in one delicious bite. Self-proclaimed cocoanista, Jacqueline Jacek, fuses her love for fashion and food to create boutique-style collections that are not only gorgeous to look at, but decadent and drool worthy. Hand-crafted chocolates are made from fine French chocolate and the freshest ingredients to create classic and contemporary flavours. Most recently, Jacek Chocolate Couture opened up a boutique on 104 St. Boy, is it hard to walk by the shop without taking a side trip. I love their chocolates! Of all their classic chocolate bars, my favourite is “The Jackie”, a 36% caramelized milk chocolate bar with hits of Fleur de Sel throughout. So addicting.
Anyways, back to self-gifting. Jacek most recently offered an Advent Calendar, for sale on November 1st. Only 150 packages were made, limited edition chocolates, with no chance of pre-orders or reservations. I knew right away that I would have to fight with the masses for a box that offered a different Jacek chocolate for the first twenty-five days of December. And I did. 9AM, November 1st, I lined up with at least ten others to grab my share at the 104 St location. Boxes, which were also sold online and at their Sherwood Park location, are now all sold out.
As much as I enjoy self-gifting, I still kept the holiday spirit in mind for my readers! As a thank you for supporting the blog, reading my reviews, and sharing good eats, I bought an extra box (value of $50) to giveaway to you guys! This year has been fantastic and full of amazing food and I’ve met so many people along the way. It’s truly become a passion of mine to not only eat my way through life, but to learn everything I can about food and to share it with other food lovers!

Love dark chocolate so my vote goes to The Stella!
The chocolates in the calendar of course 😉 I was looking for something exactly like it. Unfortunately found out way too late.
The Jackie is my favorite!! I just went out to Vancouver to visit family and they asked me to bring Jacek chocolate because they miss it so much!!
Yum! The salted caramels are my absolute favorite!
Love salted caramels! Yum and Jacek
I would like to try La Margeurite bar.
The salted caramels are to die for, but I have loved everything I have tasted. I am kicking myself for not lining up for the advent calendar. It looks heavenly!
Salted Caramels would be my favourite.
I LOVE the maple cinnamon truffle. I’m up to try anything new from Jacek. Even I typically don’t like a flavour combo, I usually like them when she makes them!
Jacek Chocolates are treat for all the senses! My favourites are their seasonal rootbeer flavour chocolates. But I love the salted caramel, their opening special champagne chocolare, the Jackie bar… Ok, let’ s be honest, I love them ALL!!!
I would love to try the salted caramel!
I love dark chocolate, especially if it’s salted caramel! So good! I want to try the espresso caramel!
Love the salted caramels!!
I waaaaant it! But I would probably just eat the whole thing in one sitting….
Couldn’t pick just one! They all look delicious – YUM!
Salted caramels sound so good!
