Who’s ready for the countdown to Christmas 2020? We’ve uncovered some of the very best vegan advent calendars in the UK containing dairy-free chocolate, from the downright luxurious to the cheap and cheerful. There are also some chocolate-free alternatives if that’s your thing!
Available in many supermarkets this year, the NOMO Advent Calendar is not only vegan, but gluten, nut and soya-free too. It features an assortment of 12 dairy-free milk chocolate drops and 12 caramel and sea salt shaped pieces. Yum!
This premium chocolate advent calendar from Hotel Chocolat is perfect for those who favour the darker side of chocolate. The higher price tag is excused by the more luxurious treats, which include a range of solid chocolate festive figures including reindeer, snowmen and Santa himself made from Hotel Chocolat’s 70% dark chocolate. If you’re looking for other Christmassy vegan chocolate, they have a huge range this year including their recently launched vegan selection box which includes pralines, truffles, caramels and batons.
Mummy Meagz have created a HUGE Christmas range for Holland & Barrett this year full of delicious treats. Their colourful advent calendar includes 24 mini Christmas scenes made with their new ‘Smoove Moove’ chocolate blend which blends dairy-free mylk chocolate with creamy dark chocolate to form an irresistible melt in the mouth combination!
Montezuma’s organic and vegan Like No Udder calendar has 24 windows containing the innovative British chocolate company’s wonderful creation of a chocolate that is as close to milk chocolate as possible…without ever going near a cow! It is as smooth and creamy and as high in cocoa as Montezuma’s regular milk chocolate. It also comes in 100% recyclable packaging.
Moo Free have been paving the way for dairy-free chocolate for years and are a firm vegan favourite. Their multi-award winning, organic, vegan advent calendar is free from gluten, soya, palm oil, dairy and wheat and made with UTZ certified cocoa which helps to support sustainable farming and provides better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. Each day, open a door to find a cute milk chocolate square adorned with a festive icon. It’s perfect for those with severe milk allergies as it’s made in a factory that doesn’t produce any milk-based products.
Enjoy a deliciously rich chocolate woodland creature and fun animal fact behind every window of this 70% dark chocolate calendar! Each mini chocolate shape is made with the finest quality Fairtrade cocoa beans from Kuapa Kokoo, who also own a stake in Divine Chocolate and share in the profits. It’s also proudly palm oil free.
