It may still be summer but retailers are already gearing up for Advent calendars.
Aldi, one of America’s largest grocery store chains, on Tuesday announced its Advent-calendar lineup for the year, and it's packed with chocolates, wine, artisanal cheeses, beer and summer’s favorite sip — hard seltzer.
The discount grocery store chain is rolling out 20 different calendars this year, including a new Vista Bay Hard Seltzer Advent calendar, featuring 24 flavors of the canned beverages. The supermarket chain is also launching a brand-new O’Donnells 12 Days of Irish Country Cream Calendars for Irish coffee lovers.
Fan-favorites are also coming back, like the Emporium Selection Advent Cheese Calendar and the hoppier Beer Advent Calendar, with some dropping as early as Nov. 4.
And there’s a slew toy calendars for little ones, like Mattel Barbie doll; Disney Marvel book; Hot Wheels; and even a calendar for dogs. The chain will also launch a sparkling wine pack on Dec. 2 for vino lovers to sip into the New Year.
