It includes cheese, crackers and caramelised onion chutney. Yes please.

In what can only be described as ‘the best Easter news ever’, Asda has announced it is going to be selling an Easter egg made entirely out of cheese.

Not only do you get a 172g block of cheese, you also get crackers and chutney to go with it. It’s been coined the ‘Cheester Egg’ by the supermarket.

It will be available to buy in stores from the 16 March.

Jo Miller, Asda’s head of cheese, said: “We’re so excited to launch the Cheester Egg. “Following the incredible response to our Christmas cheese advent calendar, the Cheester Egg was the obvious next step to show our customers that we’re constantly listening and ensuring there’s something for everyone at Asda this Easter.”

James Clapham, commercial manager of Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses, added: “We’re a nation of cheese fanatics, so we know consumers will love the Cheester Egg. “It’s an un-expected yet delicious twist on a traditional Easter favourite, and we can’t wait for Asda customers to enjoy our handmade quality blue cheese.”

Obviously people couldn’t get enough of the product on social media:
