At the beginning of this year, we travelled to Paris to meet French artist François Mangeol, who designed our contemporary Advent Calendar. François welcomed us into his studio and we spoke about, art, chocolate and Christmas.

Attached to the humanist conception of art, while endeavouring to reveal the extraordinary in the ordinary, François was inspired by Charlie & The Chocolate Factory when producing this design for COCO - especially in his references to the notorious ‘golden ticket’.

Our advent calendar contains 24 mini bars made of the finest South American chocolate, ethically sourced from Colombia. Francois Mangeol also produced the design for COCO's Contemporary Christmas bars, and we absolutely love them!

COCO's full Christmas range is available to purchase here.
