WISCONSIN — This holiday season, you can purchase a Wisconsin advent calendar full of sweet and salty treats, as well as Wisconsin favorites.

Both Wisconsin and Milwaukee themed calendars are available for purchase, with an optional add-on private Zoom meeting with Santa Claus.

The advent calendar gift boxes include locally sourced sweet and savory delicacies, including the best chocolates in Wisconsin to all-time favorite specialties such as roasted nuts, caramels, honey, jam, mustard, and maple syrup, according to Milwaukee food and city tours.

"Each gift box within our Christmas collection supports 8 to 30 food producers and small businesses in the state of Wisconsin, and despite the temporary collapse of the travel industry, it has been an incredible experience to not only financially support these businesses, but also our employees and their families," said Theresa Nemetz, founder, and chief experience officer of Milwaukee Food & City Tours.

In addition to Wisconsin and Milwaukee themed boxes, there's also the Family Breakfast Box, the Christmas Around the World Bakery Box, and Creamy Dreamy Gift Box for Custard Lovers, each of which includes virtual workshops to meet the business owners and culinary creators behind the artisanal goods.

"At the root of our company, we have the desire to support as many small businesses as possible. We’ve been working since early June to design our one-of-a-kind Advent calendar gift boxes and curate so many iconic Wisconsin-made items within the packages," Nemetz said.
