UK cheese manufacturer Norseland has released two new cheese variations under its Ilchester brand for the festive season.
The new flavour variations include Cheddar Cheese with Chilli and Lime wedge, which will be available in 413 Tesco stores, and Mature Cheddar with Caramelised Onion and Port Wine, which will be rolled out in 587 Tesco Stores.
Lisa Harrison, senior brand manager for Ilchester, said: “With the pandemic forcing many people to cancel their Christmas plans last year, Christmas 2021 is set to be a big celebration as the nation will be able to get together with their friends and families to party. Our seasonal cheeses are always popular and we are really keen to offer cheeses that reflect seasonal flavours as well as cheeses that are versatile for different dishes or occasions.”
She continued: “Our chilli and lime cheese brings the heat that so many cheese lovers adore these days combined with the freshness and zingy taste of lime. It’s a cheese that can add a bit of spice to dishes but can also work well as a standalone cheese on a cheeseboard,”.
“Our Ilchester caramelised onion and port wine mature cheddar cheese really encapsulates the flavours of winter and Christmas. Everybody loves a glass of port at Christmas and the caramelised onion adds a delicious sweetness to perfectly complement the cheddar.”
The chilli and lime cheese is available now as a permanent product in Ilchester’s cheese portfolio for an RRP of £2.20 per 200g wedge.
The limited-edition caramelised onion and port wine cheese will RRP at £2.20 for a 175g wheeler and will be available from 29 November to 6 January.
