Keto Advent Calendars – Best low carb options

What better way to get in the festive spirit than to have an advent calendar? Eat (or drink) something every day of December leading up to the big day. However, most advent calendars are not keto-friendly (looking at you chocolate) but there are some that are perfect for keto! Let’s take a look at the best keto advert calendars in the UK.

Traditional advent calendars

Do you remember being a kid and opening each advent window before school and eating that cheap chocolate? It definitely had a distinctive taste, which I suppose was a good thing as it prevented you from eating all of it in one go. Though, I may have done that a few times…

Of course, most traditional UK advent calendars contain milk chocolate which is about as non-keto-friendly as they come. However, in recent years, more and more unique advent calendars have hit the shelves, including cheese and pork scratchings. Both of which can be keto-friendly.

Cheese advent calendars

Recently, cheese advent calendars have become quite popular and can be been found in a few UK supermarkets like Asda. Of course, you’ll need to keep them in the fridge, so make room!

Ilchester Cheese

Chuckling Cheese

Available at: Amazon


24 mini cheese truckles wrapped in colourful wax.

8 unique flavours including Xmas pudding, Sunday roast, orange & whisky and more!

Chocolate advent calendars

Not all chocolate advent calendars are bad, there are some dark chocolate ones that are keto-friendly. Admittedly, the quantity of chocolate is so small that even if it does contain some sugar it shouldn’t kick you out of ketosis. Best to aim for 90% cocoa content and above.

Hotel Chocolat 100%

Hotel Chocolate The Advent Calendar - 100%

Pork scratching advent calendars

These pork calendars kind of remind me of the pork scratching displays you find on the back wall of a bar. Which come to think of, would make a great advent calendar, you could just label each day on a packet with a sharpie…

Snaffling Pig

Snaffling Pig 2020 Pork Scratching Advent Calendar - Ultimate Pork Crackling Advent

More of a DIY one, it only contains 20 bags but they are a lot bigger per serving.

Just grab a marker pen and start labelling the days. Then hang on the back of your door or wall and get eating!

Coffee advent calendars

A different coffee every morning to go with breakfast sounds like a good idea to me. Although, most of these calendars are for pod/capsule machines so only pick them up if you have one.

Beanies Flavoured Coffee

Gin advent calendars

Something for the grown-ups and you probably shouldn’t drink these in the morning before work.

In the past, stores like Aldi have sold their own gin advent calendar which contained a small bottle in each window, so keep an eye out in store!

Of course, these are one of the more expensive keto advent calendars but are great as a gift and will probably last the longest.

Make your own advent calendar

Got a special person in your life or just want to treat yourself? You can always try your hand at making your own keto advent calendar. Just pick up a DIY advent calendar kit and add your own gifts!

Grab a bargain

Not fussed about getting your advent calendar before the first of December? In that case, you can probably save a few quid and wait for reductions.

Most stores will dramatically reduce the price of any leftover stock after the first of December but of course it’s first come first served. Also, if it’s a popular one, then there might not be any stock to reduce. Furthermore, if it’s one that doesn’t contain any perishables then they remove it from sale completely (until next year).

Snaffling Pig Pork Advent Calendar order history

It’s a gamble but if you’re not particularly fussed, then they can be a great reasonably priced keto snack. I picked up a pork scratching one in January from Amazon at a reduced price of £3.99. Back in November, they were at a high of £22.99, check out the price history below.

Just because you’re on keto doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a nice advent calendar! There are so many to choose from including cheese, gin, coffee, tea and much, much more.

Be sure to keep an eye out in stores, as they will only be available for a limited time and tend to sell out pretty quick!
