B&M Are Bringing Back Their Pringles Advent Calendars For Just £7.99
OK, OK, it's massively too soon to be getting into any of this, but you know how late-stage capitalism works, as soon as they can't flog you sunglasses and shorts anymore, they want you in a Christmas hat and ready to do your Christmas duties.
With that in mind, I feel morally obliged to tell you that this is a double-edged sword. On top of swinging old ladies by their hair as you wrestle them for Christmas tat in the shops, there are other perks to the festive season.
A Pringles advent calendar for example.
Yes, it was such a hit when B&M brought it out last year that they're doing it all over again.
As it happens, last year you had to be pretty quick to get your grubby mitts on one at all. They sold out within days of hitting the shelves.
Why, you ask? Because they're packed with lots of individual Pringles of all different flavours, that's why.
What more do you want?
Unfortunately, it's not quite the same as a 'traditional' advent calendar in a sense that it doesn't actually cover the entire period of advent.

You see, advent covers the four Sundays that lead up to Christmas Day and ends on Christmas Eve. That means that it starts on Sunday 2 December this year.
Now, having that many packs of Pringles is not only relatively unhealthy, but also would present quite a challenge to get home from the shops, particularly in advent calendar form.
To circumvent that particular issue, they only give you 12. That covers a good period of the time leading up to the big day. And it's still a fair number of Pringles for your buck.
Flavours within the coveted crisp box include classics such as salt and vinegar, Texas BBQ sauce, and the sour cream and chive ones - which, let's face it, are nobody's favourite.
This discovery was made by the ever-vigilant denizens of the Money Saver Online Facebook group. They spotted the calendars, and registered the fact that they are only going for £7.99.
That represents quite the bargain if you were buying individual Pringles cans.
It was uploaded yesterday, and now the secret is out. Hundreds of people have been commenting on the post saying how much they'd love to get one, so you've got even less chance of getting your hands on one come the winter time.
Still, hope springs eternal. You might get a Christmas miracle.
