This cheese Easter egg beats chocolate any day

A cheese Easter egg, do you hear what we're saying?

Egg cheese for Easter

While we're usually champions of having chocolate in and around our mouths at all times, it's a different kind of Easter egg that's grabbed our attention this year - a cheese one.

The people behind the cheese advent calendar are back, and this time, they're bringing home the dairy, after launching a solid cheese Easter egg for all your cheesy fantasies.

The Cheester Egg was created by food blogger Annem Hobson and award winning artisan cheese company Wildes Cheese, and is made from Napier: a semi hard cheese with a slightly crumbly, yet creamy texture.

The dream, right? Speaking about her creation, Annem commented:

"Chocolate is okay, but it’s a little boring and frankly I’m sick of seeing it dominating key retail periods. Cheese is what excites me so I’m thrilled my plans for a Cheester Egg have finally hatched and that the Cheese Advent Calendar is becoming a reality. There’s a whole army of cheese lovers out there showing me their support and I hope I’m doing them proud.”

If the egg sounds up your street (it does, doesn't it?), there's also a 'Nest Hamper', which includes Peter's Yard Sourdough Crisphead and quince membrillo, as well as a Cheester Egg.

Sadly, this is currently only available in the UK, but if any cheese retailers in Australia feel inspired... let us know?
