You don’t have to look very far to see the Easter items that are lining the shelves at the major stores. More than likely, you even have a favorite and you wait until this time of year to stock up until they disappear again. For me, it is the marshmallow ‘peeps’. I just can’t seem to get enough of them.
It seems that there is a new kid on the block, and if you are a cheese lover, you are going to be running to the store as soon as you hear about it. It is the ‘Cheesalicious Easter Egg’ and it is ready to hit the shelves with 120 grams of cheddar for only ₤5.
The official cheese buyer for the store, Emma Garvey, said that this was an ‘obvious and exciting’ item to add to the brand’s spring selection. “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,” Garvey said. “The egg is truly delicious and we can’t wait to see the response from our customers.”
This does bring up some interesting questions. Can you ship it to America and, will Sainsbury be hiring more cheese buyers? Time will tell.
This product, by Butlers Farmhouse, is sourced in Lancaster. It includes a packet of Chutney and one of oatcakes. You can buy these online or in the store but they will not ship directly to any address outside of the UK.
Well look at that…the moment we've all been waiting for. Great seeing our Blacksticks Blue Cheester Egg hitting the shelves of @asda today, and @morrisons in the coming weeks! Thanks to all our hardworking team for making it happen, and to all our brilliant customers! Enjoy! pic.twitter.com/d9pcnFdUhw— Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses (@ButlersCheese) March 16, 2018
A similar idea was launched by ASDA groceries last year but you can no longer buy the Blacksticks Cheester egg, a ‘taste of the un’EGG’spected’ online. At least we have another option this year.
