Hello my name is Annem, and I’m Blogger In Chief of this blog! I’m also the inventor of the world’s first ever Cheese Advent Calendar.
You can see how the original was made in the blog post, here!
Christmas 2016, I launched a campaign after creating 1 handmade prototype. The response was overwhelming with over 11,000 of you cheese lovers signing up to get one in 2017.
After a busy year of figuring out packaging, wrapping my head around contracts, retailers, trademarks and more – I’m now thrilled to announce I’m working with the wonderful team at Norseland, Ilchester; owners of popular cheese brands such as Applewood® , Mexicana® and Jarlsberg® .
Last year they were on sale in ASDA stores nationwide in the UK for £8, but plans for 2018 – including which countries will be able to purchase one will be revealed W/C 15th October 2018. Add the date to your diary!

US, Europe and rest of the world – you have not been forgotten. Your support means the world to me and some very important people have told me that we may be heading your way in no time. If you would like the world’s first Cheese Advent Calendar to be in your country, send me your feedback so I can show it to retailers!
Calendar includes 24 individually wrapped cheeses!
The calendar has a unique ‘book style’ packaging design, allowing one half to be torn off after the initial 12 days of Christmas to maximise fridge space.
Jarlsberg® – Famous around the world for its distinctive sweet and nutty taste and its large, round holes. Smooth, distinctive and rounded, it has a hint of sweetness and a unique flavour.
Applewood® – A real English treasure. Applewood® is made from west country cheddar with a delicate smoky flavour and a lovely smooth texture, all finished with a dusting of paprika for good measure.
Mature Cheddar – Ilchester’s Cheddar comes from the West Country near where Cheddar originated in the Mendip Hills. Take a bite and let the creaminess melt into your mouth, with earthy tangy notes.
Red Leicester Cheese – Smooth and Nutty! Add a splash of colour to your cheese board with this traditional English cheese based on a classic Cheddar recipe.
Wensleydale with cranberries – Traditionally made with a smooth and creamy gold award winning Wensleydale. It is a creamy white and slightly flaky cheese, this Ilchester version is perfectly paired with juicy sweet festive cranberries.
All suitable for vegetarians.
