Best cheese advent calendars 2019

The best cheese advent calendars to make the countdown to Christmas 2020 extra special

Posted by for Food and Drink

Enjoy some cheesy goodness this December with these spectacularly indulgent advent calendars. 

Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen an explosion in the sheer variety of alternative advent calendars available for us to buy.

Long gone are the days when the only choice we had to make was between white, dark or milk chocolate; these days, we’ve got a whole load of decisions to make when it comes to our countdown method of choice, with calendars filled with beauty products, alcoholic beverages and stationery supplies all on the table.

But there’s one type of calendar which has yet to reach levels of popularity quite like the gin or wine options: the one and only cheese advent calendar. While the logistics of a cheese calendar seem a little hazy to us (do we need to put them in the fridge?), we like the festive touch a bit of cheddar or slice of brie may offer to our December countdown.

Luckily for you, we’ve scoured the internet to find the few precious calendars out there on the market: here’s what we found.
