Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses Create World’s Only Blue Cheese Easter Egg

Easter is not just for chocolate! Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses’ Blacksticks Blue creation is the perfect Easter egg for all savoury-toothed cheese lovers

This creamy, tangy half egg pops out perfectly onto any cheeseboard to take pride of place at your Easter Sunday lunch.

Order one online or pick one up in store for £5 and challenge even the most blue-averse friend to tuck into the rich and mild, spreadable blue cheese that’s well known for converting the beastliest of blue-haters around.

Known for their exquisite cheese making, Butlers use the same incredible quality blue cheese that’s lovingly handmade with 100% natural ingredients at their family-run dairy in Lancashire. A boundary-pushing cheese, Blacksticks Blue is made from milk that comes from within a 10-mile radius of the dairy giving it its famous creamy, mild, indulgent flavour.

For those times when the cheese just cannot wait – Blacksticks comes with the convenient addition of oatcakes and a sachet of caramelised red onion chutney. Blacksticks loves to get a bit fruity, so slice up a fig or plum to reach ultimate cheese nirvana. If you’re feeling more adventurous, spread the cheese thickly onto a toasted hot cross bun for a sweet ‘n’ savoury hit.

Also hitting the shelves this year is a freshly laid Butlers’ Cheesalicious Easter egg. A deliciously light cheddar cheese egg is made using the very finest milk, creating an addictive Easter treat that’ll keep you coming back for more time and time again.
