ALDI fans go wild over “best advent calendar ever invented"

ALDI fans are more than excited for the latest special buys range set to hit shelves on November 13. 

The German supermarket giant has just released details of a new advent calendar, with one of its biggest Australian fan pages giving a sneak peak of the soon to be sell-out item.

It seems the items have already caused a stir on social media, with another page labelling the calendar as the “best” ever invented. 

“The perfect accompaniment to our cheese advent calendar!” one excited fan wrote. 

“We need this!!!” said another shopper. 

“Our kind of advent calendar,” a third added.

Just like traditional chocolate advent calendars, this particular variation will allow wine lovers to count down the days until christmas with a $79.99 calendar that includes 24 mini bottles of French wine - a mix of sparkling, red, rosé and white. 

“We sold the Wine Advent Calendar for the first time in Australia in 2018 and if the popularity from last year is anything to go by, we anticipate the calendar will be a hit with customers again this year,” Jason Bowyer, ALDI Wine and Champagne Buying director told news.com.au.

Wine lovers are set to flock to stores when it goes on sale on Wednesday, November 13. 

However, the product will only be available in stores that sell liquor.
