​Sainsbury’s Has Launched A Cheese Advent Calendar For £10

Sainsbury's has launched a 24-day advent calendar filled with different cheeses, and we don't think we will be able to have just one slab a day.

The £10 calendar contains seven varieties of cheese, including Jarlsberg, Applewood, Edam, Red Leicester, Wensleydale,and Cheddar. There's also a limited edition ginger cheese for you to get your gnashers round.

Each cheese is individually wrapped, and, to help you save some fridge space, the calendar opens like a book so you can tear it in half and throw half away once you have made it 12 days in.

The calendar goes on sale on the 14th November and costs £10, but it doesn't come with any crackers so you'll need to stock up.

The Ilchester calendar was stocked at ASDA last year after food blogger Annem Hobson (otherwise known as So Wrong It's Nom), created an initial prototype a couple of years ago.

Over 11,000 people signed up to buy a calendar in just four days, and in 2017 the calendar was bought to life thanks to Somerset-based cheese specialists Norseland.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo in 2017, Annem Hobson said: "Cheese. I love it. I'd go as far as saying I love it more than chocolate.


"After searching high and low and discovering there shockingly wasn't already one on the market, I launched a campaign after creating one handmade prototype last Christmas.

"The response was overwhelming with over 11,000 of you cheese lovers signing up to get one in 2017."

Cheese lovers are definitely being treated this Christmas, as ASDA is starting to sell white chocolate and salted caramel cheese for the festive season, but we're not too sure how to feel about it.

Of course, we love cheese, we love salted caramel and we love white chocolate, so we'd definitely be up for giving it a go.

The 90g piece of creamy red tractor farm-assured Wensleydale cheese contains pieces of white chocolate and chunks of gooey salted caramel which we think we call all agree just screams festive cheer.

It will also be the cheapest cheese that ASDA sells at just £1 so you might as well give it a go when it lands on shelves on the 22nd November.

Per 100g there are 406 calories, which works out at 122 calories per 30g serving which means it's definitely the perfect indulgent festive treat.

A cheeseboard is the perfect end to your Christmas dinner but they are sometimes quite predictable. But if you're wanting to surprise your friends and family with an alternative cheeseboard this Christmas then this is definitely the way to do it.
