31 of the best chocolate advent calendars 2021 from Lindt to Thorntons
Chocolate advent calendars have been popular since the 1950s as a way to count down to Christmas Day.
Traditionally, they’ve been relatively simple in design. Just chocolate squares behind paper doors. However, in recent years, you’ve been able to get everything from Hotel Chocolat truffles and pralines to vegan chocolates and even booze-infused chocolates. Brands selling advent calendars for kids have mix-and-matched sweets, chocolates and other treats in some of their calendars now, too.
While non-chocolate advent calendars have become popular over the years, nothing beats counting down to Christmas the old fashioned way with a chocolate treat on every single day of December. So we’ve rounded up the best chocolate advent calendars for 2021 below. From classic Lindt advent calendars to Next-Day Delivery guaranteed calendars, there’s something here for everyone.
