Cheese Posties - Review

A few weeks ago I received the oddest yet most brilliant review item in the post - a cheese toastie!

I know that sounds a bit odd but bear with me! I am a cheese fiend so when I discovered Cheese Posties I thought it was the best idea ever. Cheese Posties is a subscription service for cheese toasties. These aren't plain cheese toasties though. You have a choice of sweet or savoury and there are tons of "recipes" for each. You can also tailor it to your tastes so if you're allergic to nuts or vegetarian, they'll guarantee that you won't receive any of these toastie ingredients. They even cater for gluten intolerances with gluten free bread.

I was open to trying anything and received the Jaffa Cake cheese toastie. Inside my box was all of the ingredients to make the toastie myself plus the recipe card.

  • Two slices of bread
  • Toaster bag
  • Mascarpone cheese
  • Two squares of dark chocolate
  • Orange marmalade
  • Butter
The toastie is pretty simple to make. Assemble the filling inside the sandwich, butter the outside, pop the sandwich inside the toaster bag then place it in the toaster. Once you've received your box, you do need to eat it right away or refrigerate and consume within 24 hours.

I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about trying it as I'd never had a sweet toastie before - never mind one with chocolate and cheese but after gingerly biting one corner, oh my goodness, it was amazing. It was called Jaffa Cake because that's exactly what it tasted like.

I know some people will be reading this thinking "I could just buy the ingredients myself and make it" but where's the fun in that!? I will definitely make future purchases - I'm dying to try a savoury one next. The Pepperoni Pizza one sounds amazing! I love the fact that they deliver to Northern Ireland too, food places always tend to leave us out.

A standard weekly subscription to Cheese Posties costs £3.99 plus free delivery but if you want to save yourself a bit of money, you can choose the 4 week and 8 week options for £3.90 per week and £3.75 per week, respectively.

You can find out more at the Cheese Posties website or you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter
