Part of the fun of the approach of the holiday season is discovering all the 2023 Advent Calendars that luxury brands have created. We’ve already covered the beauty aisle in a separate post. And now, we’re hungry for an edible Advent Calendar – one that has a little gourmet treat like food, chocolate, tea and more for every day from December 1 to 25. ‘Cause why not? The holidays can be stressful and a small daily indulgence sounds like an extremely sensible coping mechanism, in our humble opinion. So, we’ve curated a list of the best and most popular edible Advent Calendars, with gourmet food, wine, spirits, sweets and more for 2023.

It’s holiday advent calendar season for 2023!

We know – it seems like just yesterday we were on the beach, swimming through the depths of summer. And now, somehow, Christmas and the winter holidays are coming. Jeez. Even though December is still weeks away, all of our favorite stores and brands have already begun revealing their 2023 Advent calendars. And we got so excited, we just had to share our favorites with you.

The best edible Advent Calendars, with gourmet food, wine, spirits, sweets and more for 2023.

Though there are Advent calendars for just about everything you can imagine (truly – everything), this is a list focused on the best edible (and drinkable) Advent calendars. Because if you ask us, those are the most fun. Here’s a selection of our favorites to get excited about this season.

What are the Best edible Advent Calendars with gourmet food, wine, spirits and sweets for 2023?

1. Aldi

Aldi has to be number one when it comes to gourmet Advent calendars. The British grocery store chain is legendary for their Advent calendars – particularly their famous annual Wine and Cheese countdowns. Beginning on November 3rd, you can head to your local store to find this year’s selection. And these are in limited supply – they will not be restocked – so, act fast. But don’t worry if you miss this first round, because Aldi has a slew of surprise calendars that will be released throughout the season.


2. Naked Marshmallow Co.

Sometimes gourmet food Advent calendars are naughty, not nice. If you’re inclined to explore the dark side, then Naked Popcorn’s boozy Advent calendar is perfect for you. Or for your gift recipient. Or both.

Unlike some other dog Advent calendars, all of the cookies in this calendar from Wüfers are wrapped in airtight packaging, keeping them fresh for up to 15 months. Just in case there are more naughty episodes than nice this holiday and you don’t end up using all of them as planned.
