Product Reviews, Restaurant Reviews and Recipes: All GLUTEN FREE!
Here is my small selection of GLUTEN FREE options when it comes to Christmas Advent Calendars…
I have excluded those which are made with GLUTEN CONTAINING INGREDIENTS and those which advise a warning “MAY CONTAIN..” as these are not suitable for food allergy sufferers.
Moo Free GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, MILK FREE
A “dairy free advent calendars will make a real treat for children of any age with or without milk allergies, dairy intolerances or who are vegan this Christmas. Each dairy free advent calendar is filled with 120g of our quality, organic, dairy free rice milk chocolate.” Looking forward to opening the Moo Free calendar. Spotted on the High Street and in some supermarkets.
Montezuma’s GLUTEN FREE, GM FREE, SOYA FREE,
A selection of Dark Chocolates for the Advent time by Montezuma at £9.99.
Advises: “May contain Nut and Dairy Traces – Vegan – Made in a factory where peanuts & sesame seeds are used. Organically Grown”
Sainsbury’s Free From Advent Calendar ( GLUTEN FREE, WHEAT FREE, DAIRY FREE)
and Choices Advent Calendar (DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE, WHEAT FREE, EGG FREE) …
Good the Supermarkets do their own versions which are quite small at 72 grams but festive enough. Only when they are sitting on the same shelf do I notice the same size, and the same door positions and the same numbers on all the doors. They just have different printed covers: but are the same Advent calendar with a rice flour chocolate which will match upon opening on 1st December.
TESCO FREE FROM ADVENT CALENDAR:
And after several shop visits, I finally found the Tesco Free From Advent Calendar. It is the same size as the Sainsburys and Choices calendar although the numbering and position of windows is different!
HOLLAND & BARRETT (FAIRTRADE DAIRY FREE GLUTEN FREE EGG FREE)
Looking forward to another “delicious blend of cocoa solids, sugar and rice powder” for £3.99 in stores and online. A Good size calendar (A4).
With a beautiful christmas fragranced tea-lights for the Advent season. Sold for £21.99. The flavours includes Snowflake Cookie, Icicles, Angel’s Wings, Cranberry Ice, Christmas Cookie and Christmas Garland.
JELLY BELLY JELLY BEAN ADVENT CALENDAR:
Jelly Beans are largely made from corn syrup, sugar, flavouring and colouring and are GLUTEN FREE, so twenty four bags of jelly beans will be fun as of 1st December.
Another GLUTEN FREE, EGG FREE, DAIRY FREE, WHEAT FREE selection for Advent with a different tea for every day of the season. All individual ingredients are listed for each of the teas which is useful and reassuring.
HARIBO ADVENT CALENDAR (CHOCOLATE FREE)
A great sweet treat with bags of delightful HARIBO gum products every day for the Advent Season. This will be different for most days so an exciting treat staring on 1st December.
Lots of HARIBO is GLUTEN FREE:
Not Gluten Free
According to HARIBO themselves and other blogs so looking forward to trying a different bag from 1st December 2014…
DYLAN’S CANDY BAR ADVENT CALENDAR:
And imported from the USA, Dylans Candy Store is a famous sweet shop in Manhattan, NYC, just around the corner from Bloomingdales. It is a mecca of delight and they have several Advent Calendars for this festive season. This one is a filled chocolate piece (wrapped in foil) everyday and has made the flying journey across the Atlantic…
This has little chocolates everyday for the festive season with a warning that it is “processed on equipment which also processes peanuts and tree nuts”.
Other Free From Advent Calendars are available. Please always read the label and check yourself.
