A Queen Anne Christmas Story

Since 1925 Christmas was the busiest time for the Queen Anne Chocolate Studio in College St, Wellington as delicious chocolate treats were sent around the country to the Queen Anne shops. Christmas & Chocolate go hand in hand - to quote a customer from days gone by “a gift of Queen Anne’s was always considered the best”. 
Thanks to New Zealand Woman’s Weekly (another Kiwi Icon) for this Christmas advertisement in 1937.

Sadly Queen Anne’s College St chocolate factory closed down in the mid 1970’s and for many years Kiwis missed their favourite choccie treats….. then in 1998 we re-launched with the first of the ‘new’ Queen Anne Chocolates, arriving in time for Christmas and Yes – you did remember!

And the tradition continues…. 25 years later Queen Anne is still the perfect Christmas gift.
