Baileys are releasing an advent calendar for 2017

What better way to get into the festive spirit that the taste of Baileys every day?

Santa might be partial to a little bit of sherry at Christmas time, but for us it's definitely Baileys. Nothing says Christmas like the taste of that creamy liqueur, and now Baileys have launched their very own advent calendar to get you in the festive spirit.

Before you get too excited, this isn't like some of the amazing alternative advent calendars we've seen on sale this year where you can get a tiny wine, or a mini bottle of gin for each day that passes on the countdown to Christmas. Unfortunately you don't get a small bottle of Baileys behind each door.

BUT, what you do get is a delicious Baileys truffle every day, and then - because it wouldn't be a Baileys advent calendar without actual Baileys in it - you are treated to a little bottle of the festive tipple on Christmas Eve. So, you can enjoy a glass of your favourite festive liqueur whilst leaving out a mince pie for Santa.

Available at Debenhams for just £13, the Baileys Advent Calendar has proved so popular with fans that it sold out online in seconds. Although you can still buy some in store, we've have word from those in the know that you may be able to buy the calendars online again at the end of next week – so watch this space!

The Baileys Advent Calendar isn't the only new chocolate calendar that's proved popular already this year – despite the fact that it's still over a month until December 1st. People are already rushing out to buy the Reese's Pieces advent calendar before it sells out!
