Advent calendar 2019

It’s time again – every year the Advent season comes faster and more stressful than one would like. For many this time of the year is the most stressful time at all. Unfortunately for me it is also very stressful at the moment, which is why I am very late with my contribution here. As you already know from my Instagram post, I have again tested a few Advent calendars for their content and price. I don’t want to withhold the result from you. Furthermore you can vote under my last 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦-𝐏𝐨𝐬𝐭, which Advent calendar I should 𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐟𝐥𝐞. Just drop me a line at 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦 (𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬.𝐬𝐨𝐬𝐢) and with a little luck you’ll 𝐰𝐢𝐧 one of these advent calendars.

Maybe you already have an advent calendar. There is a really large selection of Advent calendars. So I think that for everyone a more suitable one will be to be found. I decided this year again for a Douglas Advent calendar. More precisely for two – the big Advent calendar in New York design and the small Douglas Lovely Advent calendar “Make up”. Additionally I tested the alverde Adventskalender from dm, the Heinz-Saucen – Adventskalender and the Adventskalender from Spicebar (the following blogpost describes only my personal opinion.) I bought the Heinz-Saucen-Adventskalender for my brother, because he likes to use sauces and dips.

For the price of 29.99 Euro I would have much more  

           Makeup expected. For me very disappointing, since neither 

           Eye shadow, powder, rouge or bronzer are present, but for this 

           2 dazzlers and hair bands. At a make-up calendar had 

           I was expecting something else.

For 19,95 Euro you are  optimally provided in terms of

For the price of 29.90 Euro the Advent calendar knows 

                      light deficiencies. The quantity of the individual spices is 

                      with approx. 12 g  per spice is very low. For someone 

                      who likes new and  the advent calendar is not tried out 

                      for special spices. I really recommend it. The spice 

                      portions are for 1 to  cook max. 2 times. For a student 

                      kitchen however sufficient. On a positive note, however, 

                      I must also point out that the  a recipe suggestion for    

                      each spice and facts about the appropriate spice is 

                      appended.

 

𝐇𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐳 𝐒𝐚𝐮𝐜𝐞𝐬 𝐀𝐝𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐂𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐫

The Advent calendar by Heinz is aimed at all those who like sauces and prefer savoury to sweet. For all those who like curry sauces and tomato ketchup.

𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭’𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭:

– Tomato Ketchup 3 times 34 ml flask

– Mayonaise 2 x 33 ml flask

– Dijon mustard 2 x 33 ml flask

– Curry Spice Ketchup 2 x 25 g Dip Pot

– Tomato Ketchup 2 x 25 g Dip Pot

– Garlic sauce 2 x 25 g Dip Pot

– Tartare Sauce 2 x 25 g Dip Pot

– Barbecue Sauce 2 x 25 g Dip Pot

– Sweet & Soure Sauce 2 x 25 g Dip Pot

– Curry Mango Sauce 2 x 25 g Dip Pot

– Creamy Honey Mustard 2 x 25 g Dip Pot

– Surprise mini cap

𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣:

For the price of approx. 19.99 euros I was over the 

                      existing portion sizes very astonished, because they 

                      remind us of a Breakfast buffet in some hotels. There you 

                      will find the portion sizes of the Jams no bigger, either. 

                      You can also do it with the sweet-sour sauce to nuggets 

                      with a fastfood chain gets compare. More meaningful 

                      would be here resealable jars with more contents. For  

                      such a big well-known company like Heinz the content is 

                      very poor. Here the wide range of sauces is lacking, 

                      instead   it’s just often the same products. Five times the 

                      Tomato Ketchup I really don’t think it’s necessary.

Of course there are a lot of advent calendars from different categories, which I can’t test them all. Here I have photographed a few for you. Maybe it will help you to find the right advent calendar for your choice. 

I hope that I have been able to help you with my suggestions and tips for Advent Calendars this year. Now I wish you a lot of fun with your advent calendar and don’t forget to vote for Instagram for the advent calendar competition.
