Sainsbury's Is Selling Cheese Easter Eggs And We Need It, Like, Yesterday

A date for the diary for mice and cheese-lovers everywhere: Sainsbury's has announced that customers can get their lactose-loving paws on the world's first spreadable 'Cheester' egg from Wednesday, 10th April. Seriously - pencil it in.

Priced at a modest £5, the 'Cheesealicious Easter Egg' is made entirely from irresistible cheddar cheese using the finest milk from Lancashire farms (none of that hollow chocolate nonsense).

The smooth and spreadable texture is perfect for smothering onto an oatcake (which is provided) and pairing with some tasty chutney (also in there) if you're feeling fancy. It's like the supermarket read your little mousy mind.

Alternatively, if you've had a rough week/Lent (because you gave up cheese, perhaps) you can slice bits off/eat it like a giant apple. No judgement.

It's the perfect Easter alternative for those who favour savoury over sweet - or for those who prefer having both over one or the other, because: balance.

Emma Garvey, Cheese Buyer for Sainsbury's (and someone whose job description describes our weekly trip to the supermarket) 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 is priced at £5 (which is reasonable considering it's priceless) and contains a yummy 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 Wednesday, 10th April 2019, and can be purchased online here.
