    I have just ordered one of these online and can't wait! If anyone else is a massive cheese fan, they are available in most supermarkets at £10.

    Sounds great but lost on me. Assuming that it, that it's variety chese? I'm dead boring and only like cheddar, Cheshire etc.

    I bought mine from Sainsbury's online.

    Simply not true. Chocolate is fine, but usually slightly too cheap and by Christmas I am often "chocolated out". But I have never had too much cheese. Ever. Sometimes I have eaten quite a lot of cheese, but never too much.

    Not been in Sainsburys. Might nip in for a look tomorrow if I can wade through the geriatric ditherers with lethal trolleys blocking the aisles for a natter.

    Some of those sound more like sweets than cheese.

    There is a bit of an "Ilchester" theme going on there. Never heard of them. Going off it a bit now with them ponced up varieties. I'm sure there could easily be 24 varieties without mucking about.

    I wanted one until I saw the varieties or rather flavoured cheese offered. I would make my own but maybe buying 24 different cheeses comes as a bit expensive! Besides i would want it to be a surprise each day.....and then there's all the plastic wrapping to angst over.

    When I was a kid, the only thing you got with advent calendars were festive pictures behind each window. Can I sue the advent calendar makers for my deprived childhood?
