Nestlé introduced a limited-edition STOUFFER'S Comfort Calendar, the brand's first advent calendar and a reported first for the frozen meals category. An updated spin on the age-old advent tradition, the STOUFFER'S Comfort Calendar serves dishes in the days after Thanksgiving offering seven options.

The gingerbread house-shaped box includes images of STOUFFER'S ingredients—all of which are featured in the dishes included—from the Mac & Cheese roof and Lasagna shutters to the French Bread Pizza toboggan and Chicken Bacon Ranch Wreath. Each dish is individually wrapped—from family size to single serve to newly released sides. The seven dishes are:

  • STOUFFER'S Family Size Macaroni & Cheese
  • STOUFFER'S Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce
  • STOUFFER'S Bowl-Fulls Chicken Bacon Ranch Bowl
  • STOUFFER'S Sides Broccoli Cheddar Pasta Bake
  • STOUFFER'S Sides Homestyle Mashed Potatoes
  • STOUFFER'S Pepperoni French Bread Pizza
  • STOUFFER'S Ultimate Five Cheese Mac

"STOUFFER'S first-ever advent calendar aims to help families combat scratch cooking fatigue by delivering no-fuss, great-tasting meal solutions everyone will love.
