Sainsbury’s customers can get their hands on the world’s first spreadable ‘Cheester’ egg from 10th April in stores nationwide, including their store at Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway, also available to order online. Priced at £5, the Cheesealicious Easter Egg is made entirely from irresistible cheddar cheese and even comes with oatcakes and chutney so customers can enjoy the flavour to the fullest.

Cheese-lovers nationwide can rejoice this Easter, as Sainsbury’s has announced it will be stocking a giant egg made entirely from creamy cheddar cheese for the very first time.

Available to purchase in Sainsbury’s stores from 10th April, the Cheesalicious Easter Egg is the perfect alternative Easter gift for those who favour savoury over sweet.

Made from delicious cheddar using the finest milk from UK farms, the ‘cheester’ egg makes a show-stopping cheeseboard centre piece for the family to enjoy following Easter lunch.

The smooth and soft texture of the egg is perfect for generously spreading onto an oatcake and pairing with some tasty chutney, both of which come included within the gift pack, so customers can make the most of the “eggcellent” flavour. Alternatively, those with a more no-nonsense approach can simply slice away pieces of the cheese egg and tuck straight in.

Emma Garvey, Cheese Buyer for Sainsbury’s, said: “We’re always looking for new and unique products to offer to our customers, especially during gifting periods throughout the year when people are on the lookout for something special to give their loved ones. The Cheesalicious Easter Egg seemed like an obvious and exciting choice to expand our Easter egg offering and cater to cheese aficionados nationwide. The egg is truly delicious and we can’t wait to see the response from our customers.”

 

The Cheesalicious Easter Egg pack from Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses is priced at £5 and contains 120g of cheddar cheese, one packet of oatcakes, and one sachet of chutney. It will be available to buy from Sainsbury’s stores in the UK from 10th April 2019, and can be purchased online at www.sainsburys.co.uk.
