The Blacksticks Blue Cheese Easter Egg is back by popular demand


Easter is not just for chocolate! The world’s first cheese Easter egg is back for a third year in a row. It’s the perfect pick for all savoury-toothed cheese lovers this Easter. With a flavour like no other and with a big personality to match, Blacksticks Blue is a juxtaposition of bright, creamy, mellow cheese with a hint of irresistible blue bite.

Available from 1st April in Waitrose, Booths, Selfridges and online at Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses, RRP £4, pick up the original cheese Easter egg 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.

Famed 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 rural Lancashire. A boundary-pushing cheese, Blacksticks Blue is made from milk that comes from family and friends within a 10-mile radius of the dairy giving it its famous creamy, mild, indulgent flavour.

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’ Cheester 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.
