LOVE Cheese? Then we’ve got the Easter Egg for you.
This year Sainsbury’s is selling an egg made from SPREADABLE cheddar cheese – and it costs £5.
The egg is made from spreadable Lancashire cheese
The supermarket has dubbed it a “cheaster” egg and it contains 120g of cheese, one packet of oatcakes and one sachet of chutney.
The cheese egg is slightly smaller than a medium sized Easter egg.
Of course, its more expensive than buying cheddar in the supermarket where 250g costs from £1.30 but that spoils the fun of this egg.
It will be available in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide and online from April 10.
The supermarket says the egg is “delicious” and the perfect gift for any cheese lover.
We’ve asked Sainsbury’s to confirm how many calories are in the egg and we’ll update this article when we hear back.
Emma Garvey, cheese buyer for Sainsbury’s, said: “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.”

It’s not the first “Cheester” egg to be sold in the UK. Two years ago, a solid egg made from cheese which cost £14 and went down a storm with fans of the fromage.
While Iceland previously sold an egg made of Wensleydale cheese, raspberry and white chocolate curls.
And Asda also sold an egg made of Blacksticks Blue Cheese last year.
