Sleigh those wish lists with Koko Black’s last-minute stocking fillers
Koko Black’s last minute stocking fillers
Get ready to sleigh those wish lists with Koko Black’s last-minute stocking fillers – it’s the Koko Kringle extravaganza! Christmas and chocolate have been BFFs since the middle ages, back when the winter solstice brought in the toughest season of the year. Back then, folks would keep warm by burning a log in the fireplace for as long as possible, and if it didn’t last three days, that was considered bad luck according to Catholic beliefs.
A history of Christmas and chocolate
Times changed, heating got an upgrade, and the log became more of a decoration than a necessity. But the symbolic meaning stuck. Fast forward to the 16th century when chocolate hit Europe, becoming a sensation for its taste. It eventually took on the appearance of wood bark, giving birth to the iconic Christmas log dessert. Today, despite the fancy iced and fruity variations, the classic chocolate log still reigns supreme among festive desserts.
Hold on to your Santa hats because St. Nicholas’ Day on December 5 to 6 is still a thing, especially in Eastern Europe and northern France. Saint Nicholas, the wise old man (also known as Nicholas of Myre), dishes out good chocolates and sweets to the well-behaved kids. Forget about Père Fouettard and his discipline – it’s all about the joy of getting sweets!
Kris Kringles and mini chocolate gifts
And where do you find these delights? Enter the Koko Black Christmas range! With Santa’s arrival around the corner, these Aussie artisanal chocolates are your go-to for last-minute Kris Kringles and mini gifts. Despite their small size, Koko Black is taking stocking fillers to a whole new level, making sure everyone gets a taste of that rich Christmas sweetness. Marbles, Falling Stars, and Dotties – the Christmas range is a treasure trove of surprises. Marbles come in flavors like Brandy Eggnog, Candy Cane, and Mulled Wine, each bite a burst of jolliness. Dotties, with hints of orange or a dash of caramel, are a flavor explosion in every box.
