All my daughters’ friends seem to have chocolate advent calendars. We usually have versions with toys behind each window, but since I really want to make sure they feel just like everyone else, I went on a mission to find a free-from variety.
Moo-Free makes one that looks promising, but since it “may contain traces of nuts” it is not good enough if you have a nut/peanut allergy.
Kinnerton make a true nut, dairy and egg free version but you have to be organised enough to pre-order direct from the company. I just wasn’t that organised this year.
This Celtic Chocolates advent calendar is the one we opted for, and was easily available in Holland & Barrett health food stores. It doesn’t have much allergy info on the pack (it simply says ‘contains soya’) but I’ve spoken to the manufacturer and he explained their zero tolerance policy on any nuts entering the factory. He certainly convinced me that Celtic chocolates are as safe as can be. December 1st tomorrow, and we’re ready to go.
My children always had advent calendars. I spend a lot of time searching for original ones for their children now. Cute and good idea.
Anything to add to the excitement of the build up to Christmas is good!
Glad to see you were able to find safe ones for your children.
They’re certainly enjoying them!
When I was on holiday in Berlin, I visited a vegan supermarket & I also saw dairy-free advent calendars from Moo chocolates. I also bought one , just for me! 🙂
