While some of our favourite restaurants have already woken up to the rise in veganism over the years, for those who are milk-free, lactose intolerant or vegan, anything containing chocolate is sadly normally off limits. This may be a prospect that you find incredibly hard to fathom over the Christmas period, so luckily, vegan-friendly advent calendars are here to save the day.
When it comes to the Christmas holiday, navigating the vegan-friendly food world can be a little bit challenging - nobody wants to miss out, especially when it comes to chocolate. Nothing says ‘jolly holiday’ quite like struggling to open a cardboard window in the flimsy box on the window sill to reveal festive-shaped chocolate treat to eat before you’ve even brushed your teeth in the morning. So, don't fret because now there are tonnes of vegan options out there (that are just as delicious too).
You'll want to stock up on these vegan-friendly advent calendars before December rocks around and knowing the chaos of the festive season, they'll be snapped up pretty quick. Revel in the delight that’ll define the first 24 days of December. Enjoy.
