Bonne Maman's Advent Calendar Is Here and Bound to Sell Out Again
We patiently await a few things every year when it comes to high-demand products: new Le Creuset colors, the latest KitchenAid mixer release, and the jammy annual advent calendar of our dreams from Bonne Maman. Despite the heatwaves, fall is knocking on the door, and the 2021 Bonne Maman Limited Edition Advent Calendar has arrived. Here's why we can't wait to pop open all the doors for the latest version.
There are 24 delicious flavors in mini jars featured in this year's edition, including new Cherry with Hibiscus Flower, Sweet Orange and Passion Fruit, Peach with Jasmine, Wild Blueberry with Lemon Balm, and Raspberry with Rose. The fresh styles are included along with the classics everyone loves, like Strawberry, Cherry, and Wild Blueberry. The premium preserves are a favorite for anyone serious about treating their scones, toast, and thumbprint cookies. Of course, the idea is to save the set for December, but who could resist muddling up the Peach and Mint spread in a summer cocktail? We'll give ourselves a pass for a little extra enjoyment in 2021.

Each year in August or September the newest edition of the advent calendar comes out, and since 2019 fans of the jams, jellies, and spreads have gone wild to snap up the full set complete with an adorable seasonal box. This year has a Christmas village motif, with the illustration across the front and interior of the advent calendar. The petite jars are just enough for two servings, which means there are plenty to try with a partner every day of December before Christmas. If you're hungry for more, you can also order a pack of 30 mini jams year-round (assorted apricot, orange, cherry, honey, grape, and blueberry). But for the special limited-edition flavors, the calendar is the only way to go.
The preserves and jellies have no high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, or artificial coloring, so all the fruits and ingredients included are the real deal (and taste that way). Plan to snap up the 2021 advent calendar now to enjoy throughout the fall and the holidays, or give to a loved one in the months to come. We can't wait for some Apricot with Bergamot on our morning toast.
