Yes, the name is absolutely corny, but once you can get over that, all you cheese lovers are about to be delighted. This year, cheese entrepreneur Annem of So Wrong It's Nom, is introducing the world to an alternative Easter gift. Thanks to her, 2017 has officially become the year of the Cheester Egg.
No longer must you obligatorily purchase chocolate for your loved ones. Now you can class up your gift and get them something that they will possibly love even more. (If anyone could actually love anything more than chocolate.)
The History of Cheester
Back in 2015, Annem trademarked the adorable moniker "Cheester" in hopes of one day creating an Easter egg made strictly out of cheese. Two years later, her dream has become a reality.
After working her way through the dairies of the UK to discover the perfect, award-winning cheese that she could use in her holiday-shaped cheese ball, Annem discovered Phil and Keith of Wildes Cheese.
In particular she loved their Napier cheese which comes straight out of the heart of London and won 2015's Urban Food Awards. This cheese is firm and crumbly, yet full of creamy mouth to create an elegant juxtaposition to its delicately sharp flavor.

How to Buy A Cheester Egg
Unfortunately, unless you live in the UK, you can't get your hands on one of these. However, if you do happen to live in the British Isles, the Cheester Egg costs £14.95 while the limited supplies last.
You can also opt in to try a 'Nest Hampers' for £29.95, which includes Peter's Yard Sourdough Crispbread and locally produced quince membrillo.
If you are outside the UK, check out the online store here, and also make sure you tweet @SoWrongItsNom to tell you that you absolutely require a Cheester Egg next year. It seems that she's willing to expand her delivery radius next season.
