The best chocolate advent calendars for 2020
A selection of advent calendars for the traditionalists this holiday
It's that time of year again, advent calendar season! And this post is all about chocolate advent calendars. But not the chocolate advents from my childhood... I grew up with the calendars you get at the grocery store, the ones that are two for $3.00, where the chocolate squares are thin and taste like cardboard. Great times.
These calendars are a step up.
There is a range of prices within these calendars so it gives you a pretty good idea of what's out there.
ChocZero Keto Friendly
This book-shaped calendar is Keto-friendly, no added sugar, no soy, low carb and vegan. You get 24 days of chocolate and it's available in milk and dark chocolate varieties.
This will run you $14.99 and is available on Amazon.
Cadbury Dairy Milk
The Cadbury Dairy Milk advent calendar is one I always see my favorite British YouTubers enjoying during the holiday season, and I'm always jealous that I'm not enjoying as well. This year, thanks to Amazon, I'll be picking one up and I'm so excited because we all know how great Cadbury chocolate is.
This 24 day calendar will run you $10.47, if you're buying for more than one person, Amazon offers packs of two or more.
Divine Dark Chocolate
We all have someone in our lives who prefers dark chocolate to milk chocolate – or it could be you! Those who do prefer dark can now enjoy the holiday season even more with the Divine Dark Chocolate advent calendar. This calendar is made in Germany, offers 24 days of chocolate made with 70% cocoa, is fair trade, vegan and features a beautiful winter scene on the front.
This will cost you $7.99 and is available at World Market.
Bissinger's Hallmark Countdown to Christmas
Hallmark has really come out swinging this holiday season and they're not slowing down yet. They recently released two holiday teas to drink while watching their new Christmas movies, along with some festive wines, and now they've teamed up with Bissinger's Chocolatier to create a Countdown to Christmas advent calendar. In this calendar you get 25 foiled wrapped Bissinger's Milk Chocolate Caramel Presents.
This will run you $25.00 and is available from Bissinger's and Hallmark.com.
