From the number of people who have searched the blog for info on advent calendars, this is obviously a subject which is close to many of your hearts – so I thought I should elaborate a bit on the brief mention I gave to them in Wednesday’s post about our Christmas site.
We think that we have unearthed five, but if anyone knows of any others, please let us know and we will add them both to this post and to the relevant page of the Christmas site.
MooFree’s calendar is filled with 130g of their quality, organic, dairy-free milk chocolate alternative and features five of the Moo Free animals enjoying a dairy-free chocolate Christmas together.
(The calendar was Commended in last year’s FreeFrom Food Awards.)
They have lots of on-line and high street retailers stocking the calendar so check on their site to find the most convenient for you. The calendar costs around £4.50.
Celtic Chocolates did two calendars last year, both filled with their delicious dairy-free
‘milk chocolate’ but we can only find one of them on line this year – but again, if anyone knows where else they are to be had, please let us know. We have seen them at www.abarof.co.uk and at www.alternativestores.com
and they cost between £3.99 and£4.50.
(Celtic Chocolates won a Highly Commended at last year’s awards for their Choices chocolates.)
D& D Chocolates have found this delightful wooden calendar sledge that they can fill with either dairy-free chocolates or with their dairy, gluten and sugar-free carob shapes – and that you can reuse each year. Already filled with whichever you prefer, it costs £29.99 from their site. www.danddchocolates.com
Billy Goat Stuff are also using a re-usable cloth calendar to fill with their tasty goat’s milk chocolates – although it is a bit hard to see what it looks like from this picture. The calendars costs £12.99 and they say that the design will vary. Order direct from their site – www.billygoatstuff.co.uk
And finally, we assured that Kinnerton Confectionery will be doing a dairy-free and nut-free calendar but , as yet, we cannot see any sign of it on their site. I suggest that if you particularly like Kinnerton chocolate you keep logging in to the site and, hopefully, something will appear during November.
