Unique virtual tasting experiences:
At Delysia’s Virtual Chocolate and Storytime Experience, participants will decorate handcrafted chocolate ornaments with edible ink markers as they listen to a beloved holiday story read by Santa Claus. At this virtual event children will connect with Santa personally and tell him what is on their Christmas wish list this year. Parents will submit their child’s wish list here so Santa Claus can double check his list during the virtual visit.
Join us from the comfort of your home as we travel to the North Pole virtually. Co-hosted by our chef owner, Nicole Patel and the jolly man himself, this virtual chocolate experience typically lasts 45 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A session with St. Nick. See the elves hard at work in Santa’s workshop, possibly spot a reindeer in Santa’s window, and enjoy storytime with Santa and Mrs. Claus all while decorating a decadent chocolate ornament handcrafted by our award-winning chocolatier. Once the final page of the story has been read, Santa will ask each good boy and girl what they want for Christmas, as he will be making a list and checking it twice. If time allows before Santa needs to return to his workshop, the children can ask Santa all the things they ever wondered about the North Pole.
Reserve your exclusive seat:
Tickets must be purchased by the Tuesday evening before the tasting to allow us ample time to ship the chocolates to your doorstep via FedEx expedited shipping.
Upon purchasing a ticket, an emailed receipt and ticket containing the video conferencing link will be sent to your inbox. When making a purchase for the first time, we recommend establishing an account in order to easily view upcoming event reservations. At least 24 hours before the virtual tasting, a Google Calendar invitation containing the video conferencing link will be sent to your inbox. We request that parents submit their child’s wish list here at least 48 hours before the event.
For orders that requested shipment, the chocolates will ship directly from Delysia Chocolatier to your door via FedEx expedited shipping. If curbside is selected, the chocolates will be available for pickup directly from Delysia Chocolatier’s Culinary Center during our regular curbside hours.
New experiences are released on our online shop at least 4 weeks before the tasting date and seats can be reserved as soon as the tickets become available for purchase. Every order is handcrafted and made fresh, so your chocolates are shipped within two weeks of the tasting date. You will receive an email with a FedEx tracking number once your truffles have been shipped so you can easily follow the package until it arrives at your home.
Tickets to multiple virtual tastings can be purchased at the same time, as long as those tastings are no more than 2 weeks apart. If the virtual tastings are more than two weeks apart, please place separate orders as your order will need to ship separately, since chocolates are made fresh for each tasting.
Gift a virtual tasting experience:
Share the love of chocolate with a little one in your life by gifting a virtual visit with Santa Claus. When placing your order, please type the parent’s email address when prompted at the check-out screen to ensure they receive an invitation to the live, virtually hosted tasting event. The parent will receive an email prompting them to share their child’s wish list so Santa can make the event extra memorable for the children (as well as ensure that he has all the details of their request correctly written on his list!). Please confirm that the correct shipping address entered is for the recipient. Add a personalized message along with your order to make your gift extra memorable. The chocolates are shipped to the participant’s door up to a week before the virtual experience and the Zoom invitation is emailed 24 hours in advance.
Included in your storytime experience:
With the purchase of each virtual tasting ticket, an ornament and access to this exclusive virtual event are included. If you have a household with more than one child, please ensure that you purchase a ticket for each of them so all can receive an edible ornament and markers to decorate with Santa and Mrs. Claus will guide this live virtual event with a magical holiday story reading and time to ask the children what they are wishing for this year.
Chocolate ornament and markers will be shipped via FedEx expedited shipping to the shipping address provided at the time of purchase. The video conferencing link will be emailed via a Google calendar invitation at least 24 hours before the tasting date.
Prepare for the virtual tasting experience:
Once the chocolates arrive, please remove them from the shipping box and foil bag immediately, as they may have been shipped on ice. Store in a cool dry place until the experience.
Prior to the virtual visit, please ensure that your child’s name appears on the Zoom screen. With so many good boys and girls joining us for this special event, having the correct name on Zoom will allow Santa Claus to connect directly with your child throughout the visit.
