Chocolate for all tastes from vegan to milk choc lovers
Whether you are vegan, can't get enough of Swiss chocolate or want something that is ethical, there's a chocolate advent calendar with your name on it.

So many chocolate advent calendars to choose from including this from Lindt

We take a look at some of the best on the market this Christmas to help you indulge or shop for a loved one.

Ideal for vegans and dark chocolate lovers

Dark chocolate is the key to this. Divine does a beautifully ornate calendar with a gold Christmas tree on the front.

Each window has a dark vegan chocolate heart behind it as you count down to Christmas Day. Plus there are also facts to go with the chocolate treat that fit in with the season and promoting ways to mitigate the impact of climate change.

The chocolate is also palm oil free to make it even friendlier to the environment. It costs £5 from online and is available from Traidcraft, Waitrose, Divine Online, Ocado, Oxfam and Wholefoods.

There is also a milk chocolate Divine version pictured above. More detail on this in the ethical section below.

Milk chocolate lovers

Swiss chocolate company Lindt goes big over the festive season especially with its golden wrapped Teddy Bear brand.

The Teddy has its own advent calendar that is large and glistening in red. Inside each window is spread an assortment of Lindt milk chocolates.

There's the large milk chocolate Teddy, six milk chocolate bears with a white creamy filling, a variety of truffles including hazelnut cream and double milk plus four milk Napolotains.

This is purely about the chocolate with no messages or pictures within each door but there are three games to play on the reverse of the box. The calendar costs £6.

There's also a great stocking filler with Lindt Teddy Sharing Bag for £3.50. It contains 28 delicious truffles with three different flavours - milk, double milk and hazelnut.

Lindt also has a new range of its Lindor chocolate flavours in Double Chocolate. It has a milk chocolate truffle shell with a smooth and decadent melting filling made from the finest dark Lindt chocolate.

The Lindt range is available from Lindt Chocolate Shops across the UK and online here.

Buttermilk has a Truffle Shuffle advent calendar featuring a surprise each day of chocolate truffles along with smooth caramel and rich orange flavours.

There's also a special 'zingy orange' surprise on Christmas Eve. Buttermilk's advent calendar is £13 from its website here.

Ethical advent calendars

Divine also does a Seriously Smooth milk chocolate advent calendar and as with all its products, they are coowned by cocoa farmers.

It's the only fairtrade company in the world co-owned by farmers, meaning the farmers directly benefit from each sale.

What's even better is the chocolate tastes delicious and comes in a beautifully decorated box that features a piece of the Christmas story behind each window along with a chocolate heart.

It costs £5 from online and is available from Traidcraft, Divine Online, Ocado, Oxfam and Wholefoods.

Your Comment
Advent calendars don't seem to be so much of a thing here in Australia these days. I can remember seeing them in shops in years gone by but haven't noticed them for a long time now. They ate a great way to build excitement coming up to Christmas.
