After many, many, MANY years of getting stuck into chocolate advent calendars, I’m in the market for something new. How about you?
Yes, I like the idea of something boozy, but I think, this year, I’m going to get myself this cheese advent calendar.
It came about after food blogger Annem Hobson of So Wrong It’s Nom caused a media frenzy with her initial cheese advent calendar prototype back in 2016. She was fed up of chocolate advent calendars so decided to get cheese in on the festive action. In just four days, over 11,000 people signed up to buy one of her calendars. So in 2017, the calendar was finally bought to life thanks to Somerset-based cheese specialists Norseland.
Behind each door of the Ilchester British Cheese Advent Calendar, you’ll find a miniature cheese and an equally cheesy joke. It is Christmas after all.
So, what kind of cheeses can we expect from this £7.99 calendar? Well, we’ll be treated to a whole host of varieties, including Jarlsberg, Double Gloucester, Cheddar and the particularly festive Wensleydale with Cranberries & Gingerbread.
And guess what? You can get your cheesy hands on this advent calendar TODAY!
Go, go, go!
But if you’re lactose intolerant, how about Lidl’s candle advent calendar instead?
The Luxury Candle Collection Advent Calendar, which will set you back £19.99 this festive season, comes in a chic triangular shape. And behind each door is a miniature scented candle, with fragrances like lavender, citrus and herb, pomegranate, frosted pine, frankincense, and apple and cinnamon.
