Old King Coal is a brilliant cheese that starts as a mature Cheddar, it is then blended with activated charcoal to produce a naturally smooth, black coloured cheese with a rich, creamy taste.
I bought this thinking it would just be a regular cheddar and was amazed when I cut into it to find it black all the way through! It was delicious too! Will be buying again!
What a surprise! Pleased to hear that you enjoyed it!
Thank you Christine!
We ordered only 1 of these cheddar cheese blocks together with a block of blue cheese. The delivery was missing the blue cheese and had two of the cheddar cheeses which were dry and tasted quite "off" - perhaps that's how it's meant to taste? Anyway, didn't want two of them. This was in the same order where I ordered fresh eggs which were just missing from the order without any explanation.
I love this cheeses and not always easy to find ! Makes isolation bearable !
