Christmas 2020 Advent Calendar Day 23 – Jo’s Delights


Categories: Baking, Food

It was September 2019 when I found out I was intolerant to many foods; mainly Gluten, Egg & all Dairy. As a sweet/cake lover it became very difficult to feed my cravings for the occasional muffin or cake until I discovered Jo’s Delights. Besides offering the healthier option to yummy goodies, their creations are all Vegan / Raw Vegan & Soy Free.  

Below are my 5 favorite treats that I would either give as a Christmas gift or take along with me when invited to family & friends this festive season.

Luxury Christmas Fruit Cake 19cm

XMAS Advent - Jo's Delights #1

Price: €30

Nothing screams Christmas more than a Christmas fruit cake! It reminds me of growing up – when my mum would make a beautiful one at Christmas time at home. Besides looking absolutely gorgeous, this fruit cake is bursting with tasty ingredients.  

Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts, Hazelnuts, Maple Syrup, Himalayan Salt, Nutmeg, True Cinnamon, Ginger, Vanilla, Orange Zest, Lemon Zest, Coconut, Raisins, Cranberries, Apricots, Figs, Dates, Coconut Oil.

Hamper Nutcracker

XMAS Advent - Jo's Delights #2

Price: €55

Hampers are always a fantastic gift at Christmas time especially if it’s a special original one which would be my 2nd gift pick.  

This one in particular includes some savory items such as a vegan truffle cheese, Caulikraut & Savoury Crackers, a lovely vegan Bailey’s & to top it all off some yummy sweets such as Chocolate Biscuits, Festive Bites, Luxury Fruit Cake 10cm & Fermented Apple & Spice.

Nut Butter Gift Pack

XMAS Advent - Jo's Delights #3

Price: €30

Nut butters are basically a spread made up of pure blended nuts, it’s a much healthier option to the usual spreads we use. This gift set consists of 5 jars of 280gr each, and the flavors are to die for.

  • Cashew, Maple & Turmeric 
  • Toasted Almond Hazelnut  
  • Roasted Cashew Butter 
  • Roasted Peanut 
  • Toasted Almond Butter

Panettone 900g & Egg Nogg 500ml

XMAS Advent - Jo's Delights #4.1

Price: €10

XMAS Advent - Jo's Delights #4.2

Price: €6

I’ve picked 2 different items this time which I would definitely take along with me when invited for drinks. I especially love the Egg Nogg idea, such an original gift & I imagine you can add some booze in later on 😊!

Total price for this would be €16 which in my opinion is very reasonable.

Assortment of Treats 400g

This perfect stocking filler consists of a selection of treats in a really cute jar. All you need to do is pick 400g from the following selection of delicious flavors & give to someone special!
