    I live in Normal, IL and can’t see that any stores within an hour of me will offer the Wine Advent Calendar. I tried to check several stores. Is this true?

    Was saddened by the reality behind the hype with your Wine Advent calendars – we got to the store twenty minutes early on a cold nasty Michigan morning and waited for the store to open only to learn that our store had received only 5 wine calendars so the rest of us were out of luck. After all of the promotional advertisement we expected better.

    Completely disappointed by the intentional under-supplying of the wine calendars. I live in a heavily populated area and the two stores near me got a “supply” of two and six products. I can’t imagine sales data from the UK release last year predicted that as a reasonable amount. So disappointed in this marketing ploy.

    You are the only grocery market anywhere that sells these for this price. People ran into the stores bought them up and now there are tons of them on Ebay for 150+. Next year make/sell more, and bring people into your store for other items!

    Really disappointed with the cheese Advent Calendar was at my store Wednesday at 7:50am got my voucher for the wine as about the cheese was told they didn’t get the cheese and to check back tomorrow (Thursday) morning since they get trucks every day so I drove back Thursday morning to check if came on that truck and was informed they did in fact have on Wednesday and they would have loved to save me one but the manager doesn’t allow that

    The cheese advent calendar was delayed and not delivered to the California stores on 11/7/18. It was supposed to be delivered 11/9/18 but it wasn’t in there either. I have tried to call to find out when it will be in – but there is no answer. Can you tell me when it should be delivered to California? Thank you!

    The store near me had a very small supply. I stopped in and they had long since sold out. I don’t know how many they received, but the workers seemed annoyed for having received so few. My neighbors and I were going to purchase wine and cheese calendars then open them up together. Whoever made the orders and so terribly underestimated should have someone else double check their numbers next year. A wine Advent calendar? In the midst of the holiday craze? Did you seen the look on women’s faces everywhere at the delicious, wonderful, novel idea of relaxing from the host madness to open the flavor of the night? Did you hear the collective gasps and cheers ring through the neighborhoods? Did you see the lines as gas stations the night before as moms everywhere gassed up their grocery getters in preparation? There was almost a mini black Friday feel to this. Advent calendars are no longer just for kids, folks.

    For those who were not able to purchase the cheese advent calandar due to location, stock, or other unspecified reason, you did not miss out. My opinion is premature yet passionate, in that I am very unsatisfied with the Happy Farms Preferred Cheese Advent Calandar thus far, as of Dec. 4 2018. Marketing has gotten the best of me, and I was expecting a flavored variety of the listed styles – Red Leicester, Cheddar, Gouda, Édam, and Havarti. Instead what I’ve excitedly, and conversely very disappointedly, opened as of today, was 4 of the same “matured Gouda” in a row. Lesson learned, I will certainly not be purchasing future “surprise” or “mystery” packages from ALDI again. In my personal opinion, you’d be much better off getting an 8 oz block of the Happy Farms Preferred Cranberry White Cheddar, Specially Selected Smoked Gouda, and the classic Specially Selected Edam. These specific cheeses with a wonderfully priced bottle of Winking Owl Shiraz (or 3) would be an investment garunteed to satisfy until after the holidays, unlike the Happy Farms Preferred Cheese Advent calendar that has lost its sparkle in less than 5 days.

      We’re sorry, Craig. If you’re not satisfied with the Advent calendar, you can bring the remaining product back to the store for a full refund.

      Same disappointment here! And my family was SO excited about this cheese a day idea… thinking there was something new/different each day to experience :o( We’ve opened nine (9) windows thus far – and have received two (2) Mature Gouda, (3) White Cheddar, and (4) Havarti. At first, I thought there must be something different about the second Havarti… dill or something… nope! Just more of the same -repeating, and repeating, and repeating. Aldi sells SO many varieties of cheese throughout the year, so I never would have dreamed that there are ONLY 4 to 5 different varieties total randomly placed in the daily slots. My 10 year old was quickly disappointed too – “This isn’t fun now.” Taking this back for a refund won’t do anything to replace the joy of killing/failing on this idea. Fun idea/good marketing… but POOR execution on the actual product.

    Ha ha ha, can I have Craig’s refund?

    We found out about the cheese calendar offering from a friend that received it and it has been quite fun watching him post the cheese of the day! Also entertaining has been going to all the stores to see if anyone has any of these items left as I think I’ve wrapped up my holiday shopping in the Aldis special sections.

    It is a learning lesson that I need to log in to the Aldi site more often to see what new offerings are available. Thanks for making the season entertaining, Aldis!!!

    Hello, I was one of the few people to get one of Aldi’s wine advent calendar items. 2/3 of the way thru the different wines I am very disappointed in the flavor of the wines most seem to be very bitter and dry. I am not sure if they are cheap wines or just bad choice of wines. I hope if they continue to offer these in the United States in the future they more discerning in the choice of wines put into the calendar. I love the idea of the wine advent calendar.
