The calendar is out of stock for this year - but we do have a very wide range of chocolate bars, bonbon's and Annalisa's favourite marshmallow Rocks available!    We've earned over 140 award for our chocolate in all categories.. so whatever it is you typically enjoy, we can present best in class for you.


If you are looking for something a bit different to a bottle of wine or gifts for those who appear to have everything, we can help.   Perfect tree fancies and brilliant Stocking Fillers, our bars are made in super-limited volumes and have been at the melting edge of European fine chocolate for the past 7 years.


We have a growing range of jewelry and are very proud to be the first in the UK to offer Indonesian Tahitensis - whole pod vanilla with a remarkable aromatic cherry note and floral/spicy/sweet undertones.   Whole pod vanilla is perfect for your festive creations - infused rum, custards, eggnogs, puddings, spice blends and all kinds of baking projects.

The UK Makers Advent Calendar

For the first time ever, Rachel of Brighton ChocFest has managed to organise, cajole and coerce the keenest of UK makers to contribute to the inaugural UK Maker's Advent Calendar!


Containing 25 of the Kingdom's best bean-to-bar chocolates.  Super-limited supply, please no more than 5 per person - or ask Rachel in case you need more.  Ho ho ho , no judgement here :)


The calendar has a unique craft chocolate for each of the 25 days  - don't you just hate it when you don't get a chocolate for actual Christmas day... Just me? 


Wrapped in foil and sealed in an envelope with the day of the month on the front to make sure you get just the right chocolate.


All packaged in a durable magnetic snapshut box.   100% dairy-free, the Calendar contains darks and a few dark milks, like our x4 European Gold medallist Esmeraldas 64!


The origins include are Nicaragua, Ecuador, Brazil, Haiti, Belize, Guatemala, Madagascar, India, Peru and Tanzania and more!    Explore the World via the lens of cacao.  Check out each Maker's style and interpretation of some of the finest cacao on Earth.


All the materials used are either recyclable or reusable because there's only one planet with chocolate on it and it's worth saving.


By supporting these amazing chocolate makers, you are supporting small businesses in the UK who sustainably source their cacao from farmers who are not just paid fairly but a far greater wage than Fairtrade and Cocoa Life.
