Cheese Posties are one of the most fun and innovative subscription services around and if you’re an adventurous cheese lover, you will love them!
If you’re new to Cheese Posties, the concept is simple but delicious. They basically send you a deconstructed cheese toastie through the post (but I’m sure you already guessed that by the name!) with all the fresh ingredients that you need to assemble and devour one at home. But these aren’t your average, boring cheese toasties, oh no. The team behind Cheese Posties must have huge imaginations because the flavour combinations that they come up with are amazing. You can expect anything and everything thanks to their wonderful online cheeseboard which currently has flavours like Apple Pie, Pepperoni Pizza, French Onion Soup, Jaffa Cake and last month’s Blueberry Smoothie that I reviewed here.
When you sign up to Cheese Posties, you can fill in a short questionnaire detailing your preferences, (vegetarian, no nuts, savoury or sweet etc), and if you’re not keen on any particular ingredients or types of cheese, just let them know and they won’t send you that. To get the most out of Cheese Posties, I’d highly recommend selecting ‘A Bit Of Both’ so that you can experience the sweet and savoury options because you never know if you’ll like something until you try it! You can also choose how often you’d like to have a Cheese Postie sent to you and prices start from £4.66.For this month’s Cheese Postie, I received ‘Peanut Butter Jelly‘ which I was excited to try out as I’ve never thought to have peanut butter and cheese at the same time. Interesting!Your Cheese Postie will arrive in a long rectangular cardboard box that slips nicely through the letterbox so that you don’t have to be at home to receive it. You can also have them delivered straight to your workplace if you prefer. They’re sent via 1st class Royal Mail to ensure that the ingredients are as fresh as possible, and as you can see, everything comes in its compartment and container. With your first Cheese Postie, you’ll also receive a free reusable toasting bag.
For my Peanut Butter Jelly cheese toastie, I received the following ingredients:-
- Two slices of White Bread
- Two mini packs of Kerrygold Butter
- Cheddar Cheese
- Peanut Butter
- Strawberry Jam
As always, the bread is really great quality and the portion sizes of the ingredients are very generous, especially the cheese – they certainly don’t skimp on anything!
I spread the Butter on both sides, with the Strawberry Jam on one half, and the Peanut Butter on the other, just to make things easier. I then sprinkled the Cheddar Cheese over both, and you can clearly see how much cheese they give you! I prefer to ‘toast’ mine in the frying pan as it gives it a lovely golden colour, but you can, of course, pop yours in a toasting bag straight into a toaster instead. The results!
This was one amazing cheese toastie! The peanut butter and strawberry jam worked surprisingly well with the cheddar cheese, so well in fact, that I’d definitely make something like this again. The cheese melted beautifully for a deliciously oozy and satisfyingly naughty breakfast treat. I’d say that Peanut Butter Jelly has been my favourite flavour combination so far and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for next month’s!
