My Gluten Free Advent Calendar Guide 2022 (Dairy Free section too)

29th October 2020
Blog post

My Guide to Gluten Free Advent Calendars is here!!!!! Hopefully this guide make it easy to know which advent calendars are gluten free, so you don’t stand in the shop and feel totally overwhelmed with which one to pick, like I always do! Or, if someone buys an advent calendar for you, you can send this guide to them so they know which ones are gluten free.

It’s divided into 3:

  1. Gluten Free, Contains Dairy
  2. Gluten Free, Dairy Free
  3. NOT Gluten Free – the ones to avoid

*As always, please double check the ingredients for yourself incase anything has changed. I rely on the ingredients info on the supermarkets website and they do make mistakes from time to time**

Suprises/Changes for 2022

  • Reese’s regular chocolate one is a may contain but they have one with mini cups and pretzels is weirdly ok! (pics below)
  • Kinder Chocolate Minis Advent Calendar – watch out for this one. In Sainsburys, it looks like its fine but on other websites it actually contains gluten. Will pick one up in store tomorrow and double check, but until then, be careful!
