Norseland turns up the heat for Bonfire Night
Speciality cheese company Norseland is getting in the autumnal spirit with the launch of a new cheese in its Ilchester range for Bonfire Night and the return of a Halloween-inspired cheese that was introduced last October and is making a comeback for Halloween 2020.
The Ilchester Bonfire Night Cheddar, which will be available in 450 Morrisons delis across the UK from 19 October 2020, will reportedly set tongues on fire with the warming, spicy addition of habanero chilli pepper complemented by the real pieces of the sweet and fruity ingredient of mango.
The Bonfire Night Cheddar is available on the cheese deli counter, in portions, cut from a 1.5kg half wheel, and its RRP is £10 per kilo.
The Halloween-inspired Ilchester Black Cat Cheddar was launched last year and due to popular demand is making a comeback for Halloween 2020.
The Ilchester Black Cat Cheddar is coloured and flavoured with natural cocoa and carob for a malty flavour. The Ilchester Black Cat Cheddar is sold in portions, cut from a 1.5kg half wheel, on the cheese deli counter and is available from 12 October 2020 in 450 Morrisons delis across the UK. Its RRP is £8 per kilo.
Lisa Harrison, senior brand manager for the Ilchester Bonfire Night Cheddar and the Ilchester Black Cat Cheddar, said: “We love to innovate with our cheese brands and autumnal events such as Bonfire Night and Halloween give us the perfect opportunity to create cheese that complement the season and give people the nourishing, comforting, warming food that we all crave at this time of the year.”
The launch of the Ilchester Bonfire Night Cheddar comes hot on the heels of the unveiling of the Ilchester Vegan Festive Selection, which features three new cheeses including the Ilchester Melting Mature Cheddar Vegan, the Ilchester Blue Vegan Cheese Alternative (with blue spirulina vein) and the Mexicana Vegan Spicy Cheese alternative. It also features the award-winning Applewood Vegan.
