We all know that one person who is obsessed with cheese. It doesn’t matter what kind of cheese it is: Gouda, Brie, Manchego, Cheddar or even your average American cheese, some people just need it in their lives. It’s almost hard to think of a world without cheese since it’s literally on every tasty food there is. From pizza to juicy burgers, cheese wins.
So what can you give someone with an insatiable addiction to cheese? Well, with the holidays already here, the perfect gift might just be a cheese advent calendar. We are all familiar with advent calendars. They are calendars containing small numbered flaps, one of which is opened on each day of Advent, typically to reveal a picture to the season. The usual advent calendar contains small pieces of chocolate. However, people have been stepping up their game, recreating advent calendars with mini perfumes and creating ones for their pets! Even makeup brand Benefit Cosmetics has created a calendar containing mini versions of their makeup products such as lip-glosses, blushes and highlighters.
But why hasn’t anyone ever thought of making an advent calendar with cheese? Thankfully, a blogger named Annem has invented the ultimate cheese advent calendar, and we can’t stop drooling. Annem is behind the blog entitled, So Wrong It’s Nom! She is the inventor of the world’s first ever Cheese Advent Calendar. There is only one prototype at the moment, but she has a retail version in the works, which will be available in 2017.
Since she launched her prototype, people all over social media have gone mad (in a good way). Her Cheese Advent Calendar has been featured on numerous television shows, magazines, and news outlets. Annem’s creation has been featured on a segment of ABC News’ Good Morning America, CNBC and BBC Radio. There have also been tons of articles written about her cheese calendar on Cosmopolitan, The Huffington Post, Good Housekeeping, Esquire, and Time Out. You can tell people are obsessed with cheese just as much as Annem is.
Annem isn’t keeping her creation a secret. On her blog, she gives cheese lovers step-by-step instructions on how to make their very own calendar. With images of her creating the calendar from a chocolate advent calendar, she carefully shows people how easy it can be to create one just like hers. She recommends buying the Dairy Milk calendar by Cadbury to re-create the box and from there, she teaches you how to make the cheese treats fit perfectly into the space where the chocolate once fit. She even gives you further instructions on how to successfully make the cheese advent calendar box, using the Cadbury box as a guide. It’s that easy!
Besides her blog, Annem also created an Instagram page dedicated to her cheese calendar. She shows her followers day one of her advent calendar, while eating her delicious cheese treat. Annem has also updated her followers on the number of people who have signed up on her blog to receive a calendar for 2017. It’s no surprise, but she’s already reached over 9,000 people who want to purchase one. Her Instagram page is also full of other tasty foods like chocolate, donuts and all the things we drool over. She definitely looks like the ultimate foodie! Currently, she only has fewer than 700 followers, but we are sure that will continue to rise.
If you decided to create your own Cheese Advent Calendar, Annem wants to see it. On her blog, she tells people to tweet her under the hashtags #CHEESENOTCHOC and #SoWrongItsNom. Her blog also has tons of food recipes including pumpkin peanut pakoras, Aloo Gobi, bread cheese pie with wildes mozzarella, and how to make roti.
So if you’re unsure of what gift to give that special person who is obsessed with cheese, give them the Cheese Advent Calendar for 2017, I’m sure they’ll love it and possibly have a difficult time eating just one a day.
