Sainsbury’s is selling a cheese advent calendar and it’s a yes from us

*Starts the Christmas countdown immediately*

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Christmas is coming, and the countdown is most definitely on. For the skincare and beauty buffs out there, you’ve got beauty advent calendars and beauty crackers to see you through the season. If festive booze is more your bag, you need to check out this Aldi chocolate wine. And if you want to make it a truly magical holiday, then you’ll be booking yourself a spot at the new Harry Potter bar.

But for many of us, Christmas = cheese. And lots of it.

So thankfully, Sainsbury’s is selling the delicious Cheese Advent Calendar for fondue fanatics everywhere.

Whether your favourite cheese is a nice bit of Applewood, or you’re more inclined to go for a classic Cheddar, there’s something for everyone.

The 24 day calendar from food blogger Annem Hobson offers a daily nibble of the good stuff, with a range of seven cheese types – from Jarlsberg, Applewood and  Mature Cheddar, to Edam, Red Leicester, and Wensleydale with cranberries.

Plus, there’s an exclusive bite waiting behind those doors – Wensleydale with gingerbread. Interesting…

All you need to do is pop the advent calendar in the fridge and enjoy a bite a day throughout December.

Sound like your kinda thing? Same.

You’ll be able to get hold of your own cheesey advent calendar from November 14th, retailing at Sainsbury’s (£10) and Asda (£8).

Add crackers and a nice helping of chutney, or if you’d prefer enjoy the individual chunks by themselves because, let’s face it, sometimes you just want cheese without faff.

Either way, we’ve got a feeling it’s going to make the countdown to Christmas brie-lly fun (sorry).
