The countdown to Christmas has begun at Aldi’s stores across the country, with the discount grocer celebrating with beer, cheese and wine (not a partridge in a pear tree).
On Wednesday, Nov. 6, Aldi brought back its popular Advent calendars, which feature 24 daily increments of wine, beer, chocolate or cheese, depending on the calendar chosen. This year, the wine Advent calendars feature 24 wine varieties from South Africa, Australia and more, according to the Aldi website. The calendars are expected to cause long lines and are expected to sell out like last year.
“Our Wine Advent Calendar features an array of red, white, bubbly, sweet and dry wines,” according to a message on the site. “Please note that we are limiting two per customer and once the calendars are sold out, they will not be restocked.”
The Beer Advent Calendar also includes a variety of imported beers. with six core range selections, two ALDI Finds and seven exclusive varieties. The 24 beers in the calendar are packaged in 11.2-ounce individual bottles. There is a limit of two beer Advent calendars per customer.
For those who want a non-alcoholic way to celebrate the season, there are chocolate and cheese calendars available, while supplies last. There are 24 snack-sized European cheeses, and customers can purchase up to three packs. The chocolate Advent calendars range from milk chocolate to cremé filled.
The kids can even be involved with the action. The grocer is offering toy Advent calendars featuring some of the most popular characters from television and film, including “Toy Story 4,” “Paw Patrol” and “Cars.”
“Whether you’re shopping for the wine lover, the cheese enthusiast, or the chocolate connoisseur, we’ve got unique advent calendars that’ll get anyone in the holiday spirit,” reads a message on the Aldi website. “So, however you count down, come in quick ‘cause they sell out fast.”
