Cadbury once had the monopoly on Christmas advent calendars when the chocolate giant became the first brand to commercially produce indulgent products in 1971.
Since then, companies of all kinds have launched their own versions of the chocolate-filled variety, ranging from plain milk chocolate to elaborate truffles, and even those made without any traces of milk, nuts, or animal byproducts.
Now, with so many to choose from in what has become an expansive collection, it’s hard to know where to look for the ultimate edible advent calendar.
