Delicious Food Delivered #Holiday2022 Michigan Advent

Like many businesses, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Chicago Food Tours, and its sister company, Milwaukee Food & City Tours, faced a 100% loss of revenue. Immediately pivoting to offer gift boxes, in the 3 years since the start of the pandemic, sales from their advent calendar orders have directly infused more than $3 million back to small businesses and food producers in local communities spanning 7 states. Each of the advent calendars are bursting with 24 local food producers from the particular state, including the best chocolates to all-time favorite specialties such as roasted nuts, caramels, honey, jerky, jam, caramel corn and hot chocolate. This year Delicious Food Delivered is offering a Delicious Wisconsin box, in addition to Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Tennessee, Indiana and Kentucky. “Although Christmas continues to look different in 2022, we are doing everything we can to keep the magic of the season alive and bring a taste of what people experience on our tours to the doorsteps of gift box recipients nationwide,” said Theresa Nemetz, owner and chief experience officer of Delicious Food Delivered “Each gift box within our Christmas collection supports 24 food producers and small businesses in the state. Despite the continued impact of the pandemic, it has been an incredible experience to not only financially support these businesses, but also our employees and their families.” Nemetz added, “At the root of our company, we have the desire to support as many small businesses as possible. We’ve been working to design and expand our one-of-a-kind Advent calendars and include so many iconic food items in the packages.”
We got the Delicious Michigan Advent Calendar. It is cool for us because it is from the Midwest, and my sisters and their families live in Michigan. Plus it is where we took our last family vacation (the UP) and so it is fun to discover the snacks for many reasons! Behind each door you'll find a mini version of some of the most beloved collection of 24 small businesses located throughout the state of Michigan. The Advent calendar features items sourced from small businesses throughout the state of Michigan including:
Zingerman's Candy - Peppermint Bark is a holiday classic, featuring dark Belgian chocolate, topped with white chocolate, then coated in a layer of crushed organic peppermint candies. (Ann Arbor, MI | Peppermint Bark)
Germack’s, a Detroit classic, features artesian pistachios dry roasted and lightly salted to let the natural flavor shine through. (Detroit, MI | Pistachios)
Plymouth Orchards is a woman-owned, family business since 1977 and their Dried Apples are the best around. (Plymouth, MI | Dried Apples)
“Whether you design it, build it, fix it, make it look beautiful or clean it up, you decide just how much you need to get your day started” with a sampling from Detroit Bold Coffee (Detroit, MI | 1 Oz. Bag Ground Coffee)
Sander's Candy Milk Chocolate Covered Salted Caramels features kettle-cooked caramel, draped in premium milk chocolate and sprinkled with coarse sea salt (Clinton Twp, MI | Salted Caramels)
