They say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the friendly folks at Woolworths have just made Christmas even more wonderful with an early pressie for cheese-lovers.

The supermarket has just dropped a fancy-schmancy cheese advent calendar featuring 12 festive flavours.

The Ilchester ‘12 Days of Cheesemas’ advent calendar contains 240g of pure fromage joy hidden behind a dozen cheery red cardboard doors.

Among the delectable UK-made cheesy delights are Applewood (aka smoked cheddar), the golden and mellow Double Gloucester and some crumbly Red Leicester.

There’s even a yuletide special tucked in there, Wensleydale with Gingerbread, which is a soft and sweet cheese flavoured with the quintessential Christmas baked treat.

Best of all, the exclusive-to-Woolies advent calendar costs a cheap and cheerful $16 so our advice is to harness the reindeers, ready the sleigh and head on over to your local store - or to their online shop - before it sells out.

There you’ll find something for every taste and budget, such as the very exxy Tiffany & Co advent calendar right through to the affordable and fun Elf on the Shelf kids advent calendar for $29.95.

Merry Christmas!
