Count down to a kinder Christmas with these delicious vegan advent calendars!
If there’s anything we need to round off this eventful year, it’s a plentiful supply of chocolate and some festive cheer. And with such a great variety of milk-free advent calendars on offer, there’s no reason you should be missing out.
We’ve put together a round-up of tasty vegan advent calendars that are perfect for all the family – vegan or not. As always, they are registered with the Vegan Trademark so you can shop with the peace of mind that we’ve ensured they’re suitable for vegans.
Mummy Meagz’ 24 Day Advent Calendar has been created with their new Smoove Moove blend, where smooth dairy-free mylk chocolate meets deliciously creamy dark chocolate for an irresistible combination that melts in the mouth.
Fittingly for a festive celebration that is all about family, Mummy Meagz was founded by a mother and daughter duo, Meagan and Willow Boyle.

Each advent contains 12 or 24 drawers, with every calendar drawer containing a mini organic vegan m•lk chocolate, a 3D puzzle toy and a fun facts card. Once the drawer is removed, replace it back to front to form a new picture which will be completed on Christmas Eve. The outer sleeve of the advent can also be opened up into a landscape to play with all 12 or 24 toys.
PLAYin Choc use only organic ingredients, no refined sugars and fair trade cacao from small, family owned farms in their chocolate. Their packaging is bio-degradable, recycled and recyclable.

For lovers of dark chocolate! Count down the days to Christmas with a delicious piece of 70% Divine dark chocolate along with an interesting animal fact each day in this advent calendar.
The chocolate is made with skillfully harvested cocoa beans from Kuapa Kokoo, a fair trade co-operative of loud-and-proud smallholder farmers in Ghana. It also contains no palm oil and is made with only natural ingredients.
Moo Free’s fun packed, free-from White Chocolate Advent Calendar is great for kids or adults alike. With new shapes behind the doors there’s a surprise for every day. In addition to being vegan, it’s dairy free, gluten free and soya free.
The cocoa butter used in the white chocolate is certified by UTZ who have joined forces with The Rainforest Alliance. So, you can enjoy a vegan Advent Calendar as well as help protect the planet and people who work in the cocoa fields. The advent tray is made from recyclable material and can be recycled again, along with the rest of the packaging. Moo Free’s factories also send 0% waste to landfill and the team includes several amazing people with autism.
Available at Sainsbury’s, Lidl, Aldi and Amazon.
Moo Free also do an Original 'Milk' Chocolate Advent Calendar.
