Currently, Costco is stocking two variations of the renowned Bonne Maman Advent Calendar, so if you want one, you better hurry.

Most people agree that the anticipation of the holidays is the best part of the season. We begin the festivities far in advance of Christmas Day with the hanging of decorations, the playing of festive music, and the preparation of traditional holiday fare. One of the things we always looked forward to doing as kids is back in style: advent calendars. There are several varieties of advent calendars available today, from cheese calendars to the 25 calendars that will be available at Aldi in 2021, but the Bonne Maman jam calendar may be the most sought after. We had to get the word out that Costco was offering a replica of the Bonne Maman jam advent calendar because it sells out every year and seems impossible to get ahold of.

The TikTok user account of Costco Empties was the first place we heard about the advent calendar.

The wonderful advent calendar was also featured yesterday on Instagram by user @costco doesitagain. They posted an Instagram photo of the calendar alongside a heartfelt note written on the back of the calendar’s packaging.

Bonne Maman’s “secret” was “our ingredients,” the text said. Boinne Maman’s signature flavor comes from “perfect fruits” that have been prepared with “traditional knowledge and methods.”

If you’re a foodie, you’ll love these fruit spreads because they’re created without any high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, or dyes. One need only peruse the comments to see the acclaim it has received. Someone exclaimed, “Got mine!”.

One commenter suggested using those preserves in a cocktail by adding gin to them.

One more person chimed up, “Ugh, this is so hard to find!” thus it’s best to go shopping early.

The charming small jars contained within the Costco’s Bonne Maman 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar feature 11 limited edition mini spreads and 1 honey. Currently, you can purchase it for only $13.99 in shops. The Bonne Maman Advent Calendars were available on the Costco website last year, but this year they are not. They are also often less expensive in stores, making this the perfect moment to sign up for a Costco membership.

You need look no further than Amazon if you don’t have a Costco membership or if you want more than what the 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar offers. You can choose from two distinct Bonne Maman calendars at this year’s online store’s holiday sale.

Advent Calendar: Bonne Maman 2022 (Limited Edition)

The traditional Bonne Maman 2022 Limited Edition Advent Calendar, which features 23 miniature fruit spreads and 1 honey, is also available on Amazon.

We’re not kidding when we say you should buy them now because every year they sell out at every store we’re aware of. The allure of seasonal flavors like Mirabelle plum with spice, mango raspberry, and lime jams in tiny, adorable jars is too great to resist.

The Bonne Maman 2022 Advent Calendar is available for $39.99.
