Cheese Maker Launches Easter Gift Box With Yorkshire Blue Chocolates

A Yorkshire cheese maker has launched the ultimate Easter gift for chocolate and cheese lovers! Shepherds Purse Cheeses of Thirsk is offering an Easter Gift Box-with-a-difference, showcasing 4 of its award-winning, traditionally handmade cheeses and Yorkshire Blue cheese and biscuit chocolates, courtesy of York Cocoa House, based in the chocolate city of York.

The Gift Box, RRP £15, is a cheesy alternative to the Easter Egg present and a fabulous find for foodies and offers both cow's and ewe's milk cheeses, including 180g Yorkshire Blue, 125g Yorkshire Fettle, 125g Monks Folly and 180g Mrs Bells Blue cheese.

The box incorporates a gift bag containing 4 chocolates handmade by the York Cocoa House from their Yorkshire Chocolate Collection, featuring 2 Yorkshire Blue cheese and biscuits chocolates. The dark chocolate coated truffles, created using the soft and creamy champion blue cheese with fine Belgian milk chocolate, deliver a delicious combination of savoury and sweet, creamy and crunch.

A Yorkshire Rose chocolate, made with rose petal jelly from Yorkshire roses and a Real Ale chocolate using Yorkshire bitter from a York brewery complete the set.

Commenting on the new Easter Gift Box, Katie Matten, joint managing director, Shepherds Purse said: "Chocolate and cheese are two foods people get very passionate about, so we are delighted to offer this unconventional gift for Easter to our customers at
