Most Advent calendars—non-vegan ones included—are filled with low-quality chocolate. This London-based chocolatier has turned us into Advent calendar snobs. The company sells two vegan-friendly options that contain the most luscious, high-quality dark chocolate shaped into adorable Christmas shapes. The original Dark contains pieces made with 70% cacao. The 100% variety is literally all cacao—no sugar whatsoever. If it’s your first purchase with this company, we highly recommend the Dark.
Some Advent calendars are cutesy and cartoony, but this dark chocolate-filled timekeeper is sophisticated and stunning. Each box is filled with fair trade, vegan chocolate in the shape of forest animals. Find it on Amazon, World Market, or the Divine Chocolate website.
This wintery calendar is full of vegan white chocolate in whimsical shapes. It’s perfect for kids or kids at heart. Find it on Vegan Essentials for $9.99.
For a true surprise every day in December, opt for this allergen-friendly Advent calendar. The 24 boxes are filled with 11 different kinds of chocolate—some filled, some solid—so you never know what you’ll get until you take a bite. Order yours at eatingevolved.com.
Not all vegans are into dark chocolate, and dairy-free milk chocolate is a bit harder to find. We look to No Whey when we’re craving that sweet, creamy milk chocolate we grew up on. Not only is this chocolate vegan, it’s also free of the top eight most common allergens. Find this adorable countdown to Christmas on the No Whey website.
Yes, you have to pay for shipping from the UK, but this elegant (and edible) calendar is worth it. Each vegan rice milk chocolate is shaped into reindeer, santas, stars, and Christmas trees for a sweet delight every day. It’s selling out quickly, so order yours through Cocoa Libre's website today.
You can’t eat this calendar, but its contents will last you far longer than the traditional chocolate variety. Each box of the Ciaté London “Mini Mani Month” Advent calendar contains a tiny vegan nail polish in a unique color. Plus, it comes with a bonus mini watermelon lip oil and full-size nail polish. It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving. Pick up yours at Sephora or the Ciaté London website.
