Just because we’re adults doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy little daily treats during the stressful holiday season. After all, we need something to keep us going during the hours of shopping, gift-wrapping, recipe hunting, and cooking, right? This year, don’t just let your kids have all of the fun. After all, nothing builds excitement as the holidays approach like opening a little door each day to find a surprise inside, even if you’re all grown up. But you can keep your little toys, bits, and baubles because when it comes to our 2022 advent calendar countdown, we want food and drink — and none of that stale dollar store chocolate that comes in lower-quality advent calendars. This is the good stuff.
Luckily, there are products out there that cater to those of us who think of the holidays primarily as an excuse to hoover huge amounts of Christmas cookies, chocolate treats, and lots of lovely libations.
Sure, there are classic chocolate advent calendars for those who are nostalgic for their youth. But there are also hot sauce advent calendars, craft beer advent calendars, and others hiding celebratory morsels both savory and sweet. Get a decoy for your kids, and then you can have the good stuff all to yourself.
