Christmas is fast approaching, and I wanted to do a little round-up of white choccy advent calendars. I struggle because I can’t have much milk chocolate, cocoa solids seem to give me a migraine. White chocolate doesn’t seem to have the same effect, with lots of it just being cocoa butter with sugar and milk. So, every year if I want to be a giant child (which I do) and have an advent calendar I usually have to opt for “what is at Sainsbury’s”, which invariably is Milkybar. It is a bit saddening to have to resort to Nestle where I try and avoid their products generally due to their bad practices with regards to baby milk and water. This is especially sad at Sainsbury’s, where their white chocolate offerings are pretty great – their own brand White Chocolate Wholenut bar is my favourite chocolate ever, and they also have Montezuma White chocolate Buttons!
So, on with the advent calendars!
How adorable is this! Cute little shapes, and proper shapes rather than a flat little disc that you can barely make out. Always love Hotel Chocolat, and it’s nice as it’s a local firm to me! Tasty and ethical chocolate, this would be a lovely gift. I like the ‘book’ shape of it too. For gifts for christmas, their wreath looks great too!
Not just white, but a mix if you have a willing partner to share with if you really don’t want to eat the milk ones.
another version available at John Lewis – yay llamas!
This is a sweet one, but not currently in stock which is a shame!
I know not everyone is keen on Hershey’s but I do enjoy cookies ‘n’ creme! this is so cute
Exciting to find a vegan one! I love the picture here, how fun
If you really can’t find a ready made one you like, this little drawer one from John Lewis is adorable for £10
