Recently, I attended a showcase featuring many of Aldi’s holiday items that are hitting shelves in the coming weeks. I felt like I had stepped into a scene straight out of a Hallmark movie. There were twinkling lights, plush gnomes, literal signs of merriment, wine and cheese, a build-your-own-cookie-tin station, and a butter board (of course!). 

One of the most exciting areas in the decked-out hall, though, was a table stacked with nearly every single advent calendar you can expect to see in stores starting November 2 (read: very soon). Aldi fans may already have their own calendars marked (and alarms set). In 2020, the grocer created National Advent Calendar Day, an official holiday observed on the first Wednesday of November each year.

What can you expect from this year’s advent calendars?

My sources at Aldi revealed there are more than 40 different calendars available, including three that are new this year. The O.G. wine and cheese calendars are back (these were the first two Aldi ever launched way back in 2018), along with other fan favorites, like beer, hard seltzer, and the My Friend Gnome Kit. (Fun fact: All five of these calendars have a limit of two per shopper.) I also spotted several cartoon- and movie-themed calendars, plus ones with crafts, coffee, and chocolates. There are even calendars for your furry friends.

And I couldn’t leave without getting the inside scoop on the three newbies, which feature hot sauce, candles, and the first-ever Hanukkah advent calendar. So, without further ado, here they are!

1. Moser Roth 8 Nights of Hanukkah, $5.99

This holiday-themed calendar comes with eight different two-bite chocolates, filled with caramel, hazelnut, crisped rice, and more. It’s a countdown of the holiday (not to the holiday) — and it’s a delicious one at that. 

2. Bay Island Hot Sauce Advent Calendar, $19.99

Vying for this year’s hottest calendar (in more ways than one), this box is packed with 25 different hot sauces — no repeats! The five-teaspoon-sized bottles are a mix of fiery (Ghost Pepper), fruity (Mango Habanero), smoky (Smoked Garlic), and sweet (Chocolate Chipotle) flavors. 

3. Huntington Home Candle Advent Calendar, $39.99

This hefty box with a gilded mansion printed on it is packed with 25 different 2.3-ounce candles inspired by your favorite spices (Clove), sips (Eggnog), sweets (Caramel & Ginger Cookie), and scenes from a winter wonderland (Firewood). There’s even a Winter Wishes candle, which smells like apple, anise, clove, vanilla, and amber.
