Advent Calendars
« on: October 12, 2004, 11:46:21 am »

Has anyone else seen the good range of Advent Calendars now avaliable?


The Malteser one has a Malteser ball behind each door


The Crunchie one has the Crunchie bit behind each door


And the Kinder one is fantastic. Has those little squares of Buero and other Kinder range, Maxi bits, Happy Hippos and a Kinder Suprise behind the doors. (I can confess to having brought this at the weekend!!)

I see them in Woolowrths. But I can imagine they are avalible elsewhere. Think my mum paid 4.99 for it but if you want more than a 10p sized piece of choc each morning it's well worth it!

Thanks I'll go and investigate my local Woolies.  Somerfield had Cadburys advent calendars for 99p a couple of weeks ago but they'd all gone when I went back to buy some.

I'm intrigued by your Avator Choc Chick - what does it mean or is it something private in which case sorry for being nosy!

Ah, that's nice!  No I haven't seen them but I'm off to Woolworths in a few minutes to check out Advent Calendars and supplies of 'Big Purple ones'!

The Lindt one was fantastic. I had it last year. It has those small squares of Lindt choc along with choc balls and on Christmas Eve there is a small Lindt Santa behind the door.

Sometimes with advent calendars I forget to open the doors on the days and then they build up so I have 4 or 5 to open in one go. I think you are a star choc chick to be so good to open the doors on the right days and not cheat.
