There’s no greater way to celebrate the run-up to Christmas than with an advent calendar, as we mark each day with a bite of chocolate or by finally opening that eye-wateringly expensive beauty cracker.
But for those of you with a savoury tooth, Sainsbury’s has just changed the festive game by announcing the launch of its first cheese advent calendar.

The Ilchester cheese calendar will be up for grabs on November 14 while Asda will also be stocking up from Nov 15 – it’ll even cost customers a reduced £8.
