Aldi Wine Advent Calendars Return
Ok it’s a bit early to be talking Christmas, but we’re excited because Aldi are bringing back its popular wine advent calendars. The calendars made their debut last year in the UK and proved a big hit.
Due to the success of last year’s wine advent calendars they’re also expanding them to the US (available in the Aldi stores that are allowed to sell alcohol).
The new version for 2018 is Christmas-tree shaped with 24 doors, and contains 24 mini bottles of red, white, rose and fizz, with a mix of French, Spanish and Italian wines. Aldi says the calendar is the equivalent of six full bottles of wine and that it was created in collaboration with brands such as JP Chenet and Calvet.
The calendars will be on sale for $69.99 in the US and €69.99 in Ireland and are expected to be around £49.99 in the UK.
Aldi Cheese Advent Calendars Arrive
But not to worry if you’re not a wine fan, if you enjoy a bit of cheese, they’re also bringing out a Cheese Advent Calendar!
Aldi’s Cheese Advent Calendar will include 24 mini pieces of cheese including cheddar, Edam and Gouda. It’s expected to retail for around €12.99/$12.99.
In fact we can foresee people buying both calendars to enjoy a bit of cheese and wine each evening!
Mark your phone calendar now to remind yourself: both advent calendars will be available from November 4th in store in UK/Ireland and November 7th in US stores. They’re sure to sell out quickly!
Prosecco Advent Calendar Anyone?
Finally, if that has whet your appetite, then we also found this Superstar Sparkling Advent Calendar available from Thepipstop.co.uk which you can preorder now. It will be released mid October for £124.99.
The Superstar Sparkling Advent Calendar which contains a mixture of 20cl bottles of white and rosé fizz including prosecco, cava and champagne. We think it would be perfect for putting an element of sparkle into your festive season. At the moment just available for UK delivery but if that changes we’ll let our Irish fans know!
