All we want for Christmas is… Aldi’s wine advent calendar!

Move over chocolate, mama’s kind of advent calendar has arrived and it’s going to make for one very Merry Christmas!

German discount supermarket Aldi has announced they’re bringing back their adult-only wine advent calendars so we can countdown to the jolliest day of the year one mini bottle of booze at a time!

“Counting down the days until Christmas has never been so enjoyable with ALDI’s two wine advent calendars,’ ALDI wine buyer Jason Bowyer said.

“Our brand-new, Australian-first ’12 Nights of Wine Tubes Advent Calendar’ features 12 exquisite wonders-of-the-wine-world including red and white wines from the finest wine regions, available in the comfort of your living room with a full tasting menu.”

The 12 Nights of Wine Tubes Advent Calendar will be on sale for $49.99.


While the popular 24 Days of Celebration Wine Advent Calendar, which costs $89.99, is also making a comeback.

“We are also bringing back our fan-favourite, the 24 Days of Celebration Wine Advent Calendar,” Mr Bowyer said.

“With each bottle serving two glasses of wine perfectly, the advent calendar is sure to impress loved ones.

Hidden behind each door is a mixture of 24 mini bottles of sparkling, white, rose, and red varietals for you to enjoy each and every day!


Both calendars are set to hit shelves on Wednesday, November 25.

Try to stay calm, but Macca’s has launched a Donut Ball McFlurry!

Don’t freak out, but some genius at McDonalds has just come up with quite possibly one of the best desserts ever.

Just when you thought nothing could possibly beat the classic Oreo McFlurry, the fast-food giant ups the ice-cream game by adding warm cinnamon donut balls and hot chocolate fudge into the mix.

Drooling yet?

Say hello to the Donut Ball McFlurry… a sweet treat featuring swirls of soft swerve topped with donut balls, hot fudge sauce and Oreo biscuits.

But there’s a catch, you won’t be able to simply walk into your local McDonalds and order one of these bad boys over the counter as they’re only available through the Uber Eats App.

You also better be quick if you want to treat your tastebuds to this new creation, it’s available for a limited time only – from today until 17th of November!

You can now get paid to sit and create memes all day

So, it turns out the dream job really does exist.

A company in New York is currently on the hunt for a full-time meme content writer – and no, i’m really not joking.

Memebase, a company based in Brooklyn, wants to PAY SOMEONE thousands of dollars to sit in a snazzy office and create hilarious internet memes all day.

There’s even a proper job ad for the role, with a special call out to “internet nerds” who want to work in a “fun and creative work environment, making content that people want to read.”

“Memebase is the dank wing of the Cheezburger family, specializing in Internet culture and meme trends,” the job ad reads.

“We’re looking for highly motivated candidates to bring their unique perspective of the Internet to life.”

According to Memebase, the successful candidate will be working on “lists, articles, videos and whatever we end up choosing to do on any given day”, with one of the requirements that you will need to “work within the team to brainstorm the next fun/dumb thing”.

The best part? Along with the $45,000 annual salary, the company is also promising Dental, Life, Medical, and Vision benefits.

And there’s more good news for those who haven’t been to university, with the job listing stating that a college degree is preferred, but not required.

Chicken Nugget chips actually exist and we need a packet ASAP

When your two favourite foods collide you know it’s bound to be a good time.

The legends at Coles have just upped the chip game, launching a drool-worthy new flavour inspired by everyone’s favourite hot treat – the humble chicken nugget.

One savvy shopper spotted the packet of goodness on supermarket shelves over the weekend and took to social media to share the exciting news.

As expected, the post instantly went viral and has so far attracted more than 27,000 comments from fellow chip enthusiasts.

“Didn’t know I could be so attracted to Coles-brand chips,” one person wrote.

“This is where all my money will be going,” commented another.

As the name suggests, the mouth-watering concoction contains a “perfect blend of seasonings to recreate the iconic chicken nugget taste”.

And just when you thought the snack game couldn’t possibly get any better after chicken nugget chippies, Coles goes ahead and unveils ‘Apple Pie’ flavoured crisps too, because why not?

According to Coles, the chips are the perfect snack for all sweet tooths, featuring the flavour of “sweet apple filling, spices and pastry in every bite”.

Coles Senior Product Developer Elizabeth Babic said the new creations have been quite a while in the making.

“It’s important for us to have some fun with some famous flavours and we’ve dreamt of these mouth-watering concepts in our Coles development kitchens for months now so we’re really excited our customers are already loving them as much as we do,” she said.

Packets of the new chips are available for $3 at Coles supermarkets across the country now, but you better be quick because they’ll only be on supermarket shelves for a limited time.

Race you to the chip aisle!
