    Easter, much like Game of Thrones season 8, is coming. And this year we’re getting a whole load of brilliant Easter eggs. From the actual Game of Thrones dragon egg, to the pink Prosecco egg, to the Hotel Chocolat Easter sandwiches, we’re being absolutely spoilt. We’ve also tried and tested the best vegan Easter eggs this year (you’re welcome) and there are some absolute delights in there.

    However, not everyone has a sweet tooth. In fact, some people don’t buy Easter eggs at all. And if you’re one of those people, we’ve got some great news – you don’t need to scoff chocolate to enjoy Easter. Why not get yourself a solid cheese egg instead?

    Sainsbury’s is selling a mouth-watering egg-shaped block of cheese for those who prefer things savoury. The ‘Cheester’ egg is made of 100% cheddar cheese, 120g of it to be precise, which is sourced from Lancashire farms.

    The best part, however (yes, it gets better), is that the egg is also spreadable, thanks to it’s super creamy texture, but it’s also hard enough to cut into chunks if that’s how you prefer it. Plus, it comes with a packet of oatcakes and a sachet of chutney. Winning.

    Emma Garvey, Cheese Buyer for Sainsbury’s says: ‘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 cheesealiscious cheesy Easter egg will be available online and in stores from April 10th at the very reasonable price of £5.
