Countdown to Baby Cheesus!


Hey, look at this cool Advent Calendar
that My Rare One gave me!

Instead of chocolates or candies,
this one is filled with cheese!

British cheese!

She got it at Safeway apparently.


It looks pretty classy inside, actually.

Each window is numbered between
1 and 24 in a countdown to Christmas,
the birthday of Baby Cheesus!


The window for December 1st
contained Cheddar cheese, yum.


Forthcoming cheeses include:

Applewood

Red Leicester

Double Gloucester

Cheddar with Caramelized Red Onion Chutney

Wensleydale with Crystallized Ginger,
Biscuit and Candied Orange Peel

Wensleydale with Sweetened Dried Cranberries


Obviously, my prayers have been answered!

It's going to be a tasty month!

Glad to see that Wensleydale is well represented, after being immortalized on Wallace and Gromit.

I wonder if they do beer advent calendars.....

My new favorite advent calendar! Reminds me of my favorite episode of Modern Family. The Baby Cheeses!

OMG!!!!! Do we have those here? You have no idea how appropriate this would be for my husband. The man has actually talked about taking a vacation based on cheese! Stilton blue is his favourite of all time. At the very least, I shall show him this post. -Jenn

Bob said...

Oooooh, cheese!

Mistress Maddie said...

Yum i too love cheese!!!$!$ i d love that, or one with gin!!!!!!!

DEZMOND said...

OMG do you have to keep it in the fridge? I bought one of my friends an advent calendar with earrings this year :)

Sooo-this-is-me said...

But.... I would prefer the chocolate :(
They should make one with a different type of beer each day, that would definitely be a Canadian sell out!

pam nash said...

What a great advent calendar! You have better stores than we do!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ DEZMOND -- Yes, it must be refrigerated. It does take up a lot of space in the fridge!

Tundra Bunny said...

Great... constipation for Christmas. Help us, Cheesus!

Frank said...

Dec. 25th Baby Gouda?

Leanna said...

LMAO! Baby Cheesus! BWAahahahaaahahahahahaaa! I love it. SO cheesy!

Lady M said...

I hope you get some stilton - the ultimate Christmas cheese.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Frank -- Hahahahaha, that's so good!

Liz Hinds said...

Please can I marry your Rare One?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Liz Hinds -- Hands off, she's mine! Besides, I think your husband might object.

e said...

Best advent calendar EVER!! I'm going to look for one right now!

(Also, Mitchell - that Modern Family episode is the first thing that popped into my head!)

Barbara said...

Interesting. I've never heard of a cheese advent wreath. Being a chocoholic, I'd go for the chocolate every time. Hahaha

Mike said...

I need an M&M calendar. 24 M&M's on day one. 48 on day two. 72 on day three... and on and on.

LL Cool Joe said...

Do you have to keep the advent calendar in the fridge?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ LL Cool Joe -- Yes, it must be refrigerated. But it makes my fridge look festive inside!

Marie Smith said...

Priceless! Love it! Enjoy!

Guillaume said...

I think my favourite Advent calendar would be one with beers in it. It probably exists somewhere.

What everybody else said.

Adam said...

We never do those

Busy Bee Suz said...

How fun is that? She knows just what you like. My Dad always told me....'all rats like cheese'.
LOL!! You and I are both sweet rats. :)

Joanne Noragon said...

I haven't thought about advent calendars in years.

DVArtist said...

Yeah give me cheese and I am a happy camper.

Fundy Blue said...

Your Rare One is a gem, Debra! Enjoy the advent cheese treats!

NanaDiana said...

LOL- Cheezus.....lol xo Diana

Bea said...

An advent calendar filled with cheese fills me with joy!

Wallace to Gromit: That's it! Cheese!

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

I am a big fan of the cheese...all types of the cheese. Advent Cheese Calendar. What a world we live in.

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

Splendid! These will build you up for all the Christmas cheer to come much more than chocolate sweets.

This N That said...

LOL!! How clever...DOes it come with crackers?

Martha said...

That is the most interesting Advent Calendar I've ever seen. What fun!

JACKIESUE said...

I love this so much..I love cheeses..

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Ooh, I've never seen such a cheesy calendar.
Enjoy every bite.

The Captain said...

My Morticia wanted one but I'm right and refused to spend 8 quid on an advent calendar when my chocolate one only cost a pound. In the end her mother bought her one with chocolates until the 24th which has a mini bottle of prosecco.

I did want a Lego one but they are REALLY expensive.

Ur-spo said...

I have ordered a proper edam from Holland (no rubbish) for the christmas time.
