How to use this guide.

I’ve organised these gluten free advent calendars by UK stores. That way you can pick the local store to you and know exactly what you’ll find. There’s a bit of repetition, naturally, but hopefully it makes for a handy list.

Joe & Seph’s Gourmet Popcorn Advent Calendar, 175g

I’ve tried a few Joe and Seph’s over the years and quite enjoyed their fun flavours. Popcorn is nice becuase it’s lighter than chocolate so it’s a good alternative.

May contain nuts, sesame.

Hip Oat Milk Chocolate Advent Calendar, 144g

I’m not a fan of this brand after I bought a block from them that proudly claimed to use gluten free oat milk, only to add gluten containing ingredients. Bye bye £6 on what I thought was a vegan gluten free treat. If you’re keen it’s £10.00 and you get mini chocolates in plain, white, salted caramel and… gingerbread! No allergens but may contain milk, soya and nuts due to manufacturing. 

It’s also available from the Hip Oat website.

Now remember folks, it’s Waitrose – expect the prices to be a little higher here just because.

Pukka Days of Christmas Calendar, 42.9g

It doesn’t look like there are any allergens but please see the full list of ingredients.

Butler’s The Chocolate Advent Calendar, 350g

This looks luxe for 2022, a truffle-filled Advent calendar of the UK’s finest. With flavours like midnight ginger, mocha and orange bombe there’s bound to be something to entice you. It’s pretty steep at £18.00 but perhaps one worth sharing with someone special.  Contains milk, nuts and soy.

Nomo No Missing Out Advent Calendar, 96g

Bless NOMO and their gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free and vegan chocolates! Did I mention they also taste good? At £5.50 so it’s a full £1.50 higher than NOMO at other stores. No allergens, no may contains.

It’s tricky writing for Lidl as they often the case is, once it’s gone, it’s gone. But hey, try your luck and get down there! They also have their advent calendars listed online, which is somewhat rare for Lidl / Aldi.

Moo Free White Chocolate Advent Calendar, 70g

The other gluten, soy and dairy free and vegan option is in white chocolate. I love this because so often I hear parents of dairy free kids who struggle to find white chocolate for them. Also £3.99. May contain nuts. 

Galaxy Smooth Milk Chocolate Christmas Advent Calendar, 110g

Available for £1.99 it’s a little bigger than the Cadbury. Suitable for vegetarians. Contains milk and soy. May contain almonds, hazelnuts.

There are a few calendars out there that are unfortunately online only. However, I would recommend looking at specialty stores like vegan grocers if you are searching for dairy free advent calendars.

Plamil So Free Advent Calendars, 100 – 110g

Gluten and dairy free advent calendars, with three flavours – milk, white and salted caramel.

If you’ve got multiple dietary requirements you will love that these are made in a factory that never handles dairy, gluten or nuts! They are priced around £6.95. Allergens none. May contain soy.
