    Delicious Illinois

    After receiving a “Delicious Wisconsin” last Christmas I was excited to send the Illinois selection to those who sent me the Wisconsin selection. It was very well received and I look forward to ordering next year

    Delicious Advent Calendars make for a unique and thoughtful exchange of treats from local businesses from different states - thank you for sharing! We appreciate your purchase and support of local businesses.

    Loved every little surprise!

    Every morning my husband and I looked forward to opening the little door to see what our surprise would be. To our delight, there was such variety and we loved looking to see where all the businesses were located. I even ordered some items from a few of the small businesses to have as Christmas gifts. Our grandson even got in on the fun as we let him open one of the doors. We look forward to seeing what the 2023 calendar will include!

    Thank you for your heartwarming comments. The Delicious Illinois Advent Calendar is a source of much enjoyment during the holidays. And it's not unusual that when finding the treats from local businesses so delectable, people, such as yourselves, will reach out to these merchants. They want to see more of their products and purchase additional items. Wonderful support of local businesses! Thank you for your purchase and 5 star review.
