For food lovers, the months leading up to the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. With the rich, toasty flavors of fall and the decadence of the season's holiday desserts, there's always something delicious to look forward to. One of our favorite winter traditions is a food advent calendar, where each day leading up to the holidays means opening a drawer and uncovering tasty chocolate, cookie, or another sweet surprise.

In the 1950s, Cadbury created one of the first advent calendars featuring pieces of their signature chocolate. Today, these food advent calendars have evolved into different iterations — from old-fashioned fudge to savory beef jerky, high-end chocolates to beloved French jams, and even more elaborate spreads.

To help you count down the days leading up to the holidays, we found the best food advent calendars you can buy online. Read on to discover the most delicious picks, from handcrafted caramels and marshmallows to festive cookies.
