Gone are the days when Advent calendars were filled with plain ol’ chocolate. You can find Advent calendars filled with treats to suit almost any interest (like the cheese Advent calendar at Target or the famous wine Advent calendar at Aldi).
Now Hershey’s has the perfect countdown to Christmas for any peanut butter fan: a Reese’s Advent calendar filled with chocolate and peanut butter!
What’s in a Reese’s Advent Calendar?
The most genius part of the Hershey’s invention is that you don’t have to pick favorites between Reese’s pieces and Reese’s peanut butter cups. The calendar includes six of the mini peanut butter cups and 18 packets of Reese’s pieces, so you’re in for a surprise every time you open one of the candy windows.
Of course, if one peanut butter cup per day isn’t enough for you—it’s not for me—you can make your own from scratch. They’re a great treat to share with friends around the holidays.
How Much Do the Reese’s Calendars Cost?
The candy-filled Advent calendar is listed for a whopping $20 on Amazon, but you can get it for a fraction of the price at your local big box store. Target is currently selling them for $4.99. It pays to shop around! Well, you knew that already, but did you know about these shopping tips?
If you’re more of a fan of classic chocolate than Reese’s, you can get great Hershey flavor with the Kisses calendar—which is $5.99 at Target. That might get you thinking about some of these tasty Hershey’s Kisses recipes, too. Of course, there are plenty of Advent calendars out there that aren’t candy filled. But where’s the fun in that?
