Americans, get excited: the popular German wine and cheese advent calendars we coveted last year from Aldi are coming to the States this year…and they’re almost here! The grocery chain will release its calendars for the first time in the United States on Nov. 7, and we don’t expect them to last on the shelves for long.
What better way to celebrate the holiday season then to feast on wine and cheese?
The Festive Collection Wine Advent Calendar is priced at $70 and comes with 24 small bottles of wine in white, red, rosé and bubbly varietals. There’s something for everyone, including Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Shiraz and blends as well. If you can currently purchase alcohol at your local Aldi, you should also be able to pick up one of these calendars, too—but if you’re planning on buying for a friend, you’ll need to make a separate trip: these calendars are limit one per customer.
If you prefer to shop for cheap, then you’ll thoroughly enjoy the separate Happy Farms Preferred Advent Cheese Calendar—at only $13! You’ll find the likes of 24 imported mini cheeses, from cheddar to Gouda and more tasty treats. Now these you can stock up on for gifting, as Aldi is limiting purchases of its cheese calendar to three per customer.
Personally, we think these pair perfectly for the ideal countdown to Christmas! Why choose one when you can just purchase both? Whatever you decide, don’t wait long––we foresee these selling out fast at Aldi stores on Nov. 7.
