Yes… this cheese really is black on the inside! If you’re looking for something a little different, our Black as Coal cheese is an ideal choice. Wow your friends & family with this cheddar on a cheeseboard. Originally created as a Halloween gimmick, our Black as Coal was just too popular to only have seasonally, so it’s stuck around!

We would recommend using this cheese in a toastie, paired with Sweet Chilli Jam- the perfect combination of cheese and spice. Fancy making something scary but tasty with this cheese for Halloween? Get creative and make some spooky shapes with pastry or grate over your pasta!
