German Advent Calendar with Spirits

Have some fun giving this one away! This one is filled with 24 mini liquor bottles.

My adult daughter asked for one, but I left her with clear instructions not to open its Türchen (little door) in the morning, as one would usually do. 🙂


Marketing German Food for Christmas

Before making my final trip to the supermarket this morning (most shops close at 2 p.m. today) to return some deposit bottles (Pfandflaschen) from last night’s birthday party, I took a photo of the ones called Weihnachtsbier.

Of course, it featured Santa on its label for a manly touch. I would have put an image of the Christkind on it. The beer itself was very good.

Next we picked up some items from the bakery, where Adventsbrot was featured.

I did not make it all the way to the meat counter in the back or I might have spotted some Heiligabend Wurst.


In Germany, there are 1250 different kinds of beer, 300 different types of bread and 1450 types of cold cuts/sausages. This leaves a lot of room for branding.

By the way, 89% of the Germans like to spend Christmas Eve at home with the family.

Advent Calendars in Germany

The local supermarket still has quite a few advent calendars in stock.

Advent Calendar Milka Schokolade


Advent Calendar Kinderschokolade


Advent Calendar Asbach

This must be the Adventskalender‘s adult version as it is filled with Asbach (brandy). Children get to open each TĂĽrchen (little door) in the morning. Do adults do this too? Start of the day with a shot of chocolate-covered brandy!

Advent Calendar Eierlikör

These goodies by Verpoorten must be filled with Eierlikör (egg liqueur). Happy mornings everyone!

Advent Calendar Haribo

Frohe Adventszeit!
