Oh. Forget the advent calendars of the past! ALDI has a cheese advent calendar and we are going to show you exactly what’s inside!
Does your family love the advent calendar tradition? Mine does! Years ago we would pick up the traditional candy advent calendars that held little pieces of individually wrapped chocolates behind each of the 24 doors. Then about 5 years ago we got our first toy advent calendar. Among our favorite toy advent calendars are Playmobil, LEGO, Disney and Funko Pop! versions. We switch it up each year and some years the kids each get their own calendar, while other years they share one. Many years their elf on the shelf delivers their advent calendar.
ALDI Has a CHEESE Advent Calendar
Last year I started to see some buzz online about ALDI coming out with a cheese-filled advent calendar. I searched the ALDI stores nearby and come up empty handed. This year, however, we hit paydirt. We found these cheesy calendars at our local ALDI, selling for $14.99 each. We picked up two of them and decided to use one for an unboxing. (Why should the kids have all the fun with those toy unboxing videos, right?!)
The calendar containers 24 individually wrapped chunks of cheese. There are 8 different types of cheese, each one repeated 3 times.
What kind of cheese is inside?
Each ALDI Cheese advent calendar contains 3 pieces each of:
- Aged Cheddar
- Red Leicester
- Mild Cheddar
- Matured Gouda
- Spicy Gouda
- Herbed Gouda
- Tomato and Cheese Gouda
The premise is easy: starting on December 1st, you open a door each day and are greeted by a lovely piece of cheese. The only real question? WILL you limit yourself to one door a day or will you open the whole dang thing at once? I don’t really think there’s a right answer here. Isn’t choice a beautiful thing?
ALDI Cheese Advent Calendar Unboxing Video
Yep, we totally unboxed this one on camera. Just like all of those amazing YouTube egg openers!
Enjoy (both the cheese chatter and the fact that I thought this was interesting to put on video).
