Christmas and Chocolate: A Sweet Origin Story

christmas collection


Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that gifting chocolate has become a beloved tradition during the holidays.


Europe was introduced to chocolate in the 17th century when cocoa beans traveled over from the Americas. However, the indulgent desserts made from the beans were considered a luxury by most and gained “holiday sweet” status. 


Nowadays chocolate has morphed into many shapes at the whim of different cultures. In the Netherlands “chocoladeletter” are gifted to loved ones in the shape of their initials. Britain celebrates through gold-wrapped coins that reveal the sweet confection. 


Mexico goes the extra mile by drenching the holiday turkey in a layer of chocolate and cozying up by the fireplace with hot chocolate infused with dried chili.


Why not start your own chocolate tradition this Christmas with Forrey & Galland’s new festive collection? Filled with tantalizing handmade chocolates enriched with festive flavours using fresh globally sourced ingredients.
