ALDI's Much-Anticipated New Holiday Items Are Officially Here

Spooky season is officially over, which means supermarkets are busy stocking their aisles with seasonal staples for holiday feasts. Experts are recommending that Americans plan their menus early this year as grocery shoppers across the country confront shortages, shipping delays, purchase limits, and overall higher prices.

ALDI, one of America's favorite low-cost chains, is currently rolling out one of its signature holiday items to stores. The retailer's Advent calendars, which help you count down the days to Dec. 25 in style, finally drop on Nov. 3.

Advent doesn't officially start this year until Nov. 28, but you probably shouldn't wait until that day to scoop up one of ALDI's popular Wine Advent Calendars because they typically sell out fast.

We've got all of the details about the 28 different Advent calendars that ALDI is releasing this year. They come pre-loaded with beloved finds like beer, cheese, coffee, wine, and more.

In addition to the OG favorite—the wine version—ALDI is selling three other boozy calendars this year. Both wine and beer Advent calendar options are now available, which are complete with 24 bottles each and priced at just under $60 and $50, respectively.

Joining them soon on shelves are the Connellys 12 Days of Irish Cream calendar—complete with 12 bottles of Irish Cream in flavors like hazelnut, strawberry, tiramisu, white chocolate, vanilla cinnamon, and more—and the Sparkling Wine Countdown to the New Year box with seven bottles of bubbly. Both of these calendars are slated to cost $29.99 when they hit stores.

A big change is being made to ALDI'S Wine Advent Calendar this year.

ALDI announced in September that its beloved Wine Advent Calendar was going to be cheaper than ever this year. When you pick one up at your local store, you'll notice that the price is $10 less.

An ALDI spokesperson previously revealed the reason for the discount to Eat This, Not That!. This year, all 24 mini bottles of wine are being made with plastic instead of glass, meaning they're more compact, less breakable, and less heavy. They're also 100% recyclable.

The coffee and cheese Advent calendars have already dropped, and the chocolate versions will hit store shelves soon.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year.

Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That!

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

When the coronavirus stay-at-home orders began in March, most people's lives changed in immeasurable ways. At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious.
