No grocery store celebrates the holiday season quite like ALDI does! Guilty Eats got a sneak peek at all the upcoming goodies and treats this Christmas and we highlight some of our favorites.

This year is the second year ALDI rolls out a collection of Advent calendars, and there are so many to select from, you won’t be able to resist buying several. There are some for the kids, the teens, the wine lovers, you name it!

ALDI’s Advent calendars are not available until Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021, but we give you a pretty good idea about what to expect, here. From the press release:

"The 2021 lineup includes the most robust collection to date with the return of the famous wine, cheese, and beer calendars (in select markets), as well as several brand-new, family-friendly calendars."

We’re super excited! Some of the calendars, include PAW Patrol, ELF, calendars with bath bombs to relax all month long, a New Year’s Day sparkling wine countdown, and even a Beer Advent Calendar! No one is left behind here, there’s a calendar for everyone.
