The cheese egg was first launched in 2017 as the brainchild of food blogger Annem Hobson of food blog So Wrong It’s Nom.
She came up with the idea after the runaway success of her home-made cheese advent calendar in 2016, believed to be the UK’s first.
The writer’s creative cheese calendar earned shout-outs from stars such as Zooey Deschanel, Taio Cruz and Emma Bunton on social media, and thousands read a blog post where she showed how people could make their own version.
Since many alternatives have popped up, including Sainsbury’s launching their own version in 2019, but it’s not known if they’ll be back this year.
The festive offering, officially called the Cheesalicious Easter Egg, is be made from cheddar cheese, using milk from Lancashire farms, and weighs 120g.
However, before customers start worrying about how they’re going to tuck into a 120g egg-shaped chunk of cheese, Sainsbury’s explains that the egg is made from creamy cheddar and is actually spreadable.
