10 Chocolate, Candy, and Tea Advent Calendars Because It’s Time for Excess

bon appetit

Below you’ll find some of the best advent calendars for 2021—and they are, no joke, selling out as I file this, so if one catches your eye, don’t sleep on it.

If you’re chocolated out, check out this Christmas advent calendar of individually wrapped caramels hidden behind a wintry anthropomorphic street scene featuring a hamster with a tambourine. Massachusetts-based McCrea’s Candies makes caramels that strike just the right balance between meltingly soft and jaw-achingly firm in both classic (maple and chocolate peppermint) and more unconventional (rosemary sea salt and cinnamon clove) flavors.
