Easter is just around the corner, and sweet candy eggs are on full display.

But for those who prefer cheddar to chocolate, this incredible Easter egg may be just the indulgence for you.

Yes, we're talking about the Cheester Egg.

London-based food blogger Annem Hobson of So Wrong It's Nom has partnered with Tottenham artisan cheese company Wildes Cheese to make this delectable dairy treat, which is a semi-hard cheese with a crumbly yet creamy texture.

The recipe is based on the popular Napier cheese, which was awarded London's Favourite Cheese in 2015’s Urban Food Awards by then-Mayor Boris Johnson.

Each solid, handcrafted Cheester Egg costs about £14.95 for approximately 260g of cheese. For those looking for a bigger indulgence, Hobson also offers "Nest Hampers" for £29.95, which includes sourdough crispbreads and locally produced quince membrillo.

Annem rose to fame last Christmas with her Cheese Advent Calendar prototype, which featured a different type of cheese hiding behind each door for every day of December.

"Cheese is what excites me so I’m thrilled my plans for a Cheester Egg have finally hatched and that the Cheese Advent Calendar is becoming a reality", Hobson said. "There’s a whole army of cheese lovers out there showing me their support and I hope I’m doing them proud".

The Cheester Eggs are available for delivery across the UK online. Cheese lovers can also order online and collect from from Broadway Market, Alexandra Palace Market or Myddelton Road Market.
