IF you can't indulge yourself with a chocolate a day at Christmas, then when can you?
And the good news for those who've been waiting all year to open their advent calendar, the selection for 2023 is better than ever.
From traditional milk chocolate to vegan and white chocolate options, there really is something for everyone.
Just make sure you are getting what you paid for.
"In previous years, people have reported problems with chocolate advent calendars, from missing days to poor value for cash," explains consumer expert Martyn James.
"Don't be fooled by packaging that suggests a bigger surprise than what the calendar contains – check how many grams of chocolate you're actually getting and decide whether you are happy to spend the money."
