Premium artisan chocolatier GODIVA has announced the arrival of its limited-edition Holiday Gift Collection and seasonally inspired treats. The festive new collection and offerings look to capture the magic, sparkle and light of the holiday season.
The company’s Holiday Sparkle Collection features beautifully curated holiday boxes filled with iconic GODIVA chocolate pieces and signature truffles, alongside the new, limited-edition Sparkle Collection chocolates. The sparkling chocolates, designed and handcrafted by GODIVA's chef chocolatier Jean Apostolou, are delicious on the inside with festive shimmer on the outside, paying homage to the magic embedded in the holiday season and nostalgic flavors of the season like hot cocoa, almond, caramel and raspberry.
The collection is available in three shimmering flavors:
- Milk Chocolate Almond Caramel – Smooth caramel infused with almonds, enrobed in luscious milk chocolate drizzled with milk chocolate and dusted with sparkling gold edible glitter
- Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa – Intense dark cocoa ganache surrounded by decadent dark chocolate and sprinkled with shimmering white edible glitter
- White Chocolate Raspberry – Sweet raspberry preserves enrobed in smooth white chocolate and dusted with sparkling pink edible glitter
“The inspiration for these chocolates came directly from the twinkling lights and ornaments of the holiday season that decorate our homes and somehow transform the everyday to something magical,” says chef Jean Apostolou. “Each of the handcrafted GODIVA chocolates are topped with edible glitter, making them shimmer, and the insides are filled with classic holiday flavors like hot cocoa and almond, instantly evoking the warmth and wholesome goodness of the season. I created the Sparkle Collection to bring happiness to others, by capturing the joy of the holiday season, which we are all especially eager to embrace this year.”
This holiday season, GODIVA boutiques and cafés nationwide will offer festive and seasonally inspired treats including Peppermint Mochas and Cinnamon Spice Lattes (only available at GODIVA Cafés) or classic beverages Peppermint Hot Chocolates and Cinnamon Spice Hot Chocolates (available at both GODIVA Cafés and boutiques). New this year, GODIVA guests can add a little holiday spirit to their favorite GODIVA Handcrafted Shake by topping it with a Candy Cane Truffle, available at both GODIVA Cafés and boutiques.
Special gift offerings for the season include the limited-edition Holiday Truffle Collection (featuring truffle flavors including salted caramel, Christmas cookie, roasted almond, milk chocolate and cranberry), Holiday Hot Chocolate Toppers (whimsical snowman and Santa hot chocolate toppers that add a chocolatey layer to seasonal warm beverages), holiday artisanal lollipops (available in GODIVA milk, dark or white chocolate and classic holiday characters like Santa and a snowman) and holiday handcrafted truffle pops (milk chocolate truffles dipped in milk, dark or white chocolate and decorated with holiday sprinkles).
