Yes, it’s fall. But we can still look ahead to cooler (and more festive) months. If you’re anything like me, the holiday season is slowly coming into focus. Christmas carols are making an occasional appearance on my “favorites” playlist. And I’ve started ideating holiday gifts for everyone on my list.

As an added bonus, seasonal items are popping up in stores as we speak. And one of my all-time favorites, the Bonne Maman Advent Calendar, just made its 2023 debut. Here’s what you need to know about this delicious countdown.

What is the Bonne Maman Advent Calendar?

The Bonne Maman Advent Calendar is every breakfast lover’s dream. This beautifully designed gift features 24 petite jars of Bonne Maman’s quality spreads and honeys. Each day leading up to Christmas, you’ll unwrap seasonal flavors like Cherry with Pink Peppercorn, Fig with Cardamom and Mirabelle Plum with Spices. I’m looking forward to dressing up toast, pancakes, waffles and even ice cream with a little holiday indulgence.

Using the Bonne Maman Advent Calendar is simple. Just crack open the first window on December 1, pull out your miniature jam jar and enjoy! Make this your morning ritual every day leading up to Christmas.

As an added bonus, this year’s calendar features a peek into Santa’s workshop, with artwork highlighting busy elves prepping for the big day. The ‎roughly 12-inch by 12-inch box is perfect for displaying at your coffee station, above the fridge or anywhere else that could use a little Christmas cheer.

Why I Love It

Bonne Maman Advent Calendar ReviewKatie Bandurski/Taste of Home

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Bonne Maman Advent Calendar for some firsthand testing. Yes, my calendar arrived in August. And no, I could not wait until December to dig in. Don’t worry, though. I won’t give all the surprises away!

After unwrapping the packaging and cutting through the plastic wrap covering, I was instantly impressed with the scenic art. As a kid who spent way too much time reading every inch of the cereal box during breakfast, I appreciate the great detail. And that’s just on the paper sleeve! Once you take the sleeve off, you’re greeted by more art and a set of hinged doors that open to the calendar itself.

Once open, like most Advent calendars, it’s a true test of self-control. I opened the first box to reveal a delicious fruit spread and a cheerful note. The door, while made of cardboard, was sturdy. I could easily pry it open, but there’s no need to worry about spoiled surprises with this calendar. And, if you’re careful, you can preserve the beautiful artwork. The perforations ensure each door opens cleanly.

In the name of journalism, I did end up opening every window—and can confirm all of the flavors are well-packed and delicious. There was nary a broken jar or repeat flavor. I love that this Advent calendar is designed with adults in mind. While some flavors are kid-friendly, others are likely a bit too adventurous for budding tastes. So while the little ones are digging into their chocolates every December morning, the rest of the family can get in on the fun too.

Plus, after the holiday rush, I now have 24 petite jam jars to fill with spices, plant saplings or even candle wax. The crafting options are endless!

Where to Buy the Bonne Maman 2023 Advent Calendar

The Bonne Maman Advent Calendar is selling for $45 on Amazon and the brand’s website. While a bit on the pricey side, the quality and attention to detail make it one of the most value-packed options on the market.  Act fast, though. This calendar has a history of selling out before you can say “sugarplum.”
