This Aldi Vista Bay Advent Calendar is new for 2020!
Since Aldi introduced its Wine Advent Calendar in U.S. stores in 2018, Aldi’s advent calendar selection has expanded immensely.
This year, there are more than 20 calendars in the lineup.
Aldi has declared the first Wednesday in November — Nov. 4 this year — as National Advent Calendar Day. And one of the calendars being released on that date is filled with hard seltzers!
The Aldi Vista Bay Advent Calendar is a great alternative to the Aldi wine and beer advent calendar offerings. We know that all of the Aldi fans on low-carb and keto diets, especially, will appreciate this one!
When will the Aldi Vista Bay Advent Calendar be released?
This calendar will be available starting on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
What is the price of the Vista Bay Calendar?
This calendar will retail for $34.99.
What is inside the 2020 Aldi hard seltzer advent calendar?
There are 12 different flavors of Vista Bay inside the calendar, including some brand new ones! There are 24 cans — one for each day Dec. 1-24, so each flavor is in there twice.
The cans in the calendar are 8.5 fluid ounces — smaller than a typical 12-ounce Vista Bay can.
Here are the Vista Bay Advent Calendar flavors for 2020:
- Black Cherry
- Tangy Lemon
- Blood Orange
- Raspberry Lime
- Green Apple
- Coconut Mango
- Mandarin Lime
- Passion Fruit
- Ruby Grapefruit
What is Vista Bay?
Vista Bay is Aldi’s private label line of hard seltzers. Hard seltzer is basically flavored, carbonated water with alcohol in it. Sales of hard seltzers — led by name brands White Claw and Truly — have increased by about 200% over the past year. Aldi has been riding that huge popularity wave with its Vista Bay brand.
Why is hard seltzer popular?
Hard seltzer is known for being lower in calories than many alcoholic beverages — weighing in at about 100 calories per can. The cans in the Aldi Vista Bay Advent Calendar have 74 calories each.
Where will the Aldi Vista Bay Advent Calendar be sold?
This calendar will be available in U.S. Aldi stores that already sell hard seltzer. If your store does not carry hard seltzer, you will not be able to buy this advent calendar there, unfortunately. Sales of alcohol require liquor licenses, and not every state or municipality allows grocers such as Aldi to get a license.
In addition, Aldi announced the last week of October that, because of supply and distribution issues, stores in West Virginia will not have this hard seltzer calendar in stock in 2020.
