About the calendar



The recommended retail price is £3.99. 

The Real Advent Calendar is the only charity advent calendar with a free Christmas story booklet behind the 25th window.

It will help everyone enjoy and share the Christmas story.

Behind each of the 25 windows is a Fairtrade chocolate star and a few words from the Christmas story. Behind the final window there is a 24-page Christmas story booklet to read, keep and enjoy (show to the right).

As well as celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, the calendar makes a charity donation from every sale to the Children’s Society.

We would love you to help someone celebrate the real meaning of Advent this year by giving them a Real Advent Calendar.

Frequently asked questions

Is your chocolate allergy free?
Our chocolate contains natural ingredients. Our products are handmade in the UK in a place where people also handle nuts and items containing wheat/gluten, therefore we cannot guarantee totally nut or gluten free chocolate. Our milk chocolate contains milk and so is not suitable for those with an allergy to lactose. There is also soya lecithin. 

Is the Real Advent Calendar suitable for vegetarians?
Yes, our chocolate is made with natural cocoa butter and contains no vegetable fat substitutes.

Where does your chocolate come from and where do you make it?
Our sugar comes from cooperatives in Paraguay and Beliz. Our cocoa from cooperatives in the Ivory Coast with additional higher quality beans, used to create our unique blend, from cooperatives in the Dominican Republic, Ghana, Peru, Panama and Ecuador. The chocolate is made in Belgium. 

Why is your chocolate not more healthy?
Our aim is to make chocolate that most people can enjoy as a treat and as part of a balanced diet. We use the best natural ingredients in our chocolate. If we replaced natural cocoa butter or sugar with highly processed artificial alternatives then fewer people would enjoy it. So we say enjoy our chocolate but be treat wise.

Why is your chocolate not 100% Fairtrade?
All the cocoa and sugar used to make our chocolate is certified Fairtrade. Some ingredients are not yet available from Fairtrade supplies so no chocolate can be 100% Fairtrade.

Does your chocolate contain palm oil?
No. In the UK it is possible to add 5% vegetable fat to chocolate. Unlike some larger manufacturers, we don't add any palm oil or any other oils to our chocolate. It's just natural chocolate.
