NEW YORK, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, GODIVA, the global leader in premium chocolate, announced the much-anticipated arrival of its limited-edition Holiday Gift Collection and seasonally inspired treats. The festive new collection and offerings capture the magic, sparkle, and light of the holiday season. GODIVA is the perfect choice for the chocolate lover who is looking to make the season even more luminous and spectacular.
GODIVA has truly captured the sparkle of the season and it plays throughout the chocolatier's shimmering Holiday Gift Collection, from its new and glimmering chocolates to its whimsical and glittering packaging. Wonder awaits gift-givers and receivers alike as GODIVA's delicious and festive innovation will add some holiday sparkle to everyone's lives.
GODIVA's 2020 collection also evokes cozy childhood memories and joyful unexpected surprises in the most wonderful way. Taking cues from the NEW chocolates, delicious on the inside and sparkling on the outside, GODIVA uses sparkles as a graphic element around and under each product to highlight its wonder.
Holiday Sparkle Collection Perfect for every gifting occasion, the beautifully curated holiday boxes are filled with iconic GODIVA chocolate pieces and signature truffles, alongside the new, limited-edition Sparkle Collection chocolates. The sparkling chocolates, designed and handcrafted by GODIVA's Chef Chocolatier Jean Apostolou, are delicious on the inside with festive shimmer on the outside, paying homage to the magic embedded in the holiday season and nostalgic flavors of the season like hot cocoa, almond, caramel and raspberry.
"The inspiration for these chocolates came directly from the twinkling lights and ornaments of the holiday season that decorate our homes and somehow transform the everyday to something magical. Each of the handcrafted GODIVA chocolates are topped with edible glitter, making them shimmer, and the insides are filled with classic holiday flavors like hot cocoa and almond, instantly evoking the warmth and wholesome goodness of the season. I created the Sparkle Collection to bring happiness to others, by capturing the joy of the holiday season, which we are all especially eager to embrace this year," says Apostolou.
Holiday Sparkle Chocolate Collection: A collection of ornament shaped exquisite chocolates that are delicious on the inside and sparkling with festive shimmer on the outside.

Milk Chocolate Almond Caramel: Smooth caramel infused with almonds, enrobed in luscious milk chocolate drizzled with milk chocolate and dusted with sparkling gold edible glitter.
