Open Post: Hosted By The Return Of Costco’s Wine Advent Calendar
At the end of the day, no matter what horrible shit is going on around the country, there will always be two creature comforts that withstand it all: wine and Costco. And, fortunately for some, Christmas has come early in the form of Costco’s legendary Wine Advent Calendar, aka alcoholism in a box. That’s right, the next time you’re picking up a pallet of sour cream and an industrial drum of mayo, you can mosey on down to the booze aisle and pick yourself up––let’s be real, nobody is buying these things as gifts for other people––12 days of holiday cheer (or 1 afternoon of absolute bliss).
According to BuzzFeed, Costco’s Wine Advent Calendars are back in select locations throughout the US. If you’re unfamiliar with these products from past years, they are basically bulk boxes consisting of 24 half bottles of wine from around the world––reds, whites, bubblies, and rosés––all for $99.99, which (assuming you count 24 half bottles as 12 FULL bottles) breaks down to about $8 a bottle.

The wine advent calendars are back in the warehouse! Each calendar contains 24 imported half bottles. Check out the second slide to see every bottle included. I know it seems early, but if you want one (or more) of these, you have to get them now. They sell out quickly-(people were literally walking out with flatbeds full of these!) Just $99.99. Swipe for details and price tag.
As of now, wine advent calendars have already been spotted in Costco locations throughout Georgia, Florida, and Colorado, but it’ll roll out to the other Costcos soon. There’s a beer one too. But I’m sure there are many people rolling their eyes at this because ever since the pandemic began, they’ve been downing a bottle of wine a day while counting down to the end of this shit year. So you’re late to the drunk bitch party, Costco!
