12 Days of Chocolate - Xmas Advent Calendar

$3,593

Having trouble deciding on the perfect Christmas Gift? Don't worry, we've got you covered! Celebrate the holidays with chocolates from Salt Confectionery!

 

 

For the Christmas season, we've drawn inspiration from marble and natural stones to create a sensuous display that is perfect for gift giving or self enjoyment. One Advent Calendar includes 12 handmade chocolate pyramids, each carefully crafted where no two are the same. And best of all, the pyramids taste as good as they look!

 

        

 

        

Our pyramids are made from premium Belgium white or dark chocolate. Each box includes a mix-n-match of the following flavors: strawberry, matcha green tea, oreo cookies, and assorted nuts (macadamia and almond).

White Chocolate Ingredients: Sugar, palm kernel oil, whole milk powder, nonfat dry milk, palm oil, soy lecithin - an emulsifier, vanilla.

Dark Chocolate Ingredients: cocoa butter, sugar, soy lecithin - an emulsifier, vanilla.

* Food allergy warning: our food contains tree nuts, soy and dairy products. Please do not consume our product if you or the intended recipient have allergies related to ingredients above.

*Chocolate is very sensitive to temperature. Please make sure someone is available to receive the chocolate on the delivery date. Store in cool and dry place.

        
 

 

 

 

 

        
 

 Hey there, it's Eileen and Manlin, thank you for reading thus far! We met in school while studying for our Masters degree in Architecture and remained best friends ever since! Bonded by our common love for art, food, culture and architecture, we decided to combine our professional knowledge and hobby into one box of chocolate (which you will be munching on soon!). Our dreams do not stop with this Kickstarter project; rather, we hope it will give us enough resources to fund our big idea.

 

We want to bring art, beauty, and happiness into people's everyday life through something that is enjoyable and commonplace--chocolate! Each month, we will create a collection of twelve chocolates inspired by a different artist, writer, photographer, poet, or architect. A small publication on the featured person and his/her works will be also be included. Although still early in preparation stages, we are seeking to collaborate with the Artist Rights Society, artists' estate and local artists. All funds from our advent calendar campaign will be used to cover artist copyright related costs. Every pledge, big or small, will help turn our idea into reality so we want to shout out THANK YOU to all of our backers!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest obstacle is the Californian sunshine and our greatest challenge thus far is how to prevent chocolate from melting during transportation! We've tried many combinations of insulating materials and tested shipping from coast to coast. One way or another, we will do our best to make sure your chocolates are in good condition upon delivery :)

If you have any questions, feedback, or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us!
