The countdown to Christmas is about to get a whole lot better. Because the creator of the cheese advent calendar that nearly broke the internet back in 2017 is coming stateside.
The So Wrong It’s Nom blogger, inventor of the calendar that was previously only available in the U.K., has been working hard to partner with even more vendors and retail in even more countries because, when it comes to cheese, we all want a seat at that table.
So now, for the first time ever, you’ll be able to shop these cheese countdown calendars at Target. How convenient!
A cheese advent calendar is exactly what it sounds like — a delicious way to count down to Christmas. The countdown is meant to begin on Dec. 1 and proceed for the 24 days leading up to Christmas day on Dec. 25. That’s right. If you get this calendar, you get 24 bite-size cheeses.
The cheeses come in seven different varieties, including jarlsberg, applewood and mature cheddar. According to a press release, the calendar will be stocked in 247 participating Target stores. These will be available starting in November, so be ready to start stalking the aisles. With the holiday season creeping closer, you’ll want to stock up sooner rather than later!
If you’re unable to find the calendar in your local Target, however, you don’t have to miss out on all of the cheese-eating fun. The blogger behind So Wrong It’s Nom, Annem Hobson, first started her journey to creating a cheese advent calendar for purchase by DIY-ing one of her own. And thankfully, she’s detailed how you can, too!
Following her instructions, you’ll have a cheese-filled calendar in no time. It’s not quite as convenient as purchasing one that’s already made, but for a little treat of cheese in the days leading up to Christmas — it’s worth it.
You can find the full tutorial on the So Wrong It’s Nom website.
Of course, if you plan to enjoy some cheese in the days leading up to Christmas, you may also want to pair it with a glass of wine. Check out the wine advent calendar from Aldi, which holds 24 mini bottles of wine. We can’t imagine a better pairing!
You won’t want to miss out on all of the surprises the holiday season can bring — and there’s no better way to celebrate than with advent calendars like these. Cheers to the holiday season! December can’t get here quickly enough!
