Have you got your tasty advent calendar?

With December fast approaching, it’s the time again to get an advent calendar! When was the last time you had one?

For me it was, I think, a few years ago. When I was a small girl, every year on the Mikuláš (Saint Nicolas) day, me and my sisters got an advent calendar with small chocolates. Then I remember one year when I got an advent calendar with tea bags. It was something unusual and I remember the flavours were great.

When I grew older, at some point, for some mysterious reasons I can’t understand, I suddenly stopped getting advent calendars. By that time I was, however, able to buy them myself. I remember I always had one on my writing table during the university years. I usually stuck to the chocolate ones.

Today there’s such a big variety of advent calendars – you can have calendars filled with cosmetics, beer, Lego, jewellery, yankee candles… or various types of food and drinks, of course.

Last year I did some research and came up with a few posts summarizing the best foodie advent calendars I found in three categories:

Part 1 – TEA

Part 2 – ALCOHOLIC DRINKS

Part 3 – SWEET TREATS

Check them out, many of these will be for sure available this year as well.

It doesn’t matter if you would buy it for yourself or for somebody else – which one is your favourite?

    This post brought me back to when I was a kid and was of course also getting advent calendars for Mikuláš. I loved them and was always waiting with much suspense what the last chocolate shape will be (it usually was a bell). These days, I’d prefer a booze advent calendar. Great idea 🙂

    1. It´s true – the last chocolate was usually a bell. I wonder if it was because we use the bell to summon the family around the tree or why…
