The Story

The McCrea’s Candies advent calendar is a collaboration with New Hampshire artist Cindy Hendrick. Her illustrations have captured the hearts of people all over the country. The collaboration was born at NEM where Kate first encountered Cindy’s company Woodfield Press (LLC).

After purchasing prints and notecards for years the two struck up a conversation about creating an advent calendar that captured the whimsy, magic, and anticipation of the holiday season. Each year we work together to create a theme that Cindy brings to life through her playful woodland scenes to delight both children and adults alike.

In the McCrea’s kitchen, we know that with time-tested methods, family secrets, fewer, wholesome ingredients, and a whole lot of TLC always yields more incredible flavor. All our caramels are cooked in traditional copper kettles with only the best ingredients, from the milk and butter to the Dutch-processed chocolate liqueur, fresh aromatics, and specialty salts.

Watch out for your dental work

While all the caramels are very tasty (with the exception of the one with straight up coffee grounds in it), even though I was eating very small bits at a time this candy pulled one of my dental crowns off. Now I’m very hesitant to have the rest of the pieces. Buyer beware.

Waiting for Advent Season

I received my order but have not eaten any of the caramels as yet. I like your caramels so assume the ones in the calendar will be good. The drawings are delightful.

Hard to review when it’s a gift

Why are you asking me for a review of an item I clearly purchased as a gift and not asking me to review the customer service and experience of the purchase? So far, not so impressed. I sent an email after placing my order inquiring about my gift note and if it had indeed been included. Upon checkout I was not given a preview or opportunity to see my vote. So far no one has responded. Sorry I am unable to create this review higher.
