      Best cheese in my book. An indulgent cheese that I would rather eat by itself

      This is one of my favourite cheeses and one that my fridge cannot be without. The texture and deliciously nutty flavour make it so hard not to have a slice of it every time I open my fridge. Im so glad that out of all the cheeses I picked when trying something new whilst shopping that I chose this, it tastes better than brie in my opinion but im no cheese expert hehe. I prefer just eating it by itself as to not mix the flavour. the only thing that i dont like about this cheese is that some packs have a less gooey middle and its more dry and crumbly. Not a massive disadvantage and it doesnt change the taste too much, every pack is like this to a degree but I like it best when its super soft. Im eating it right now its so nice omg <3

      I love my cheeses, particularly soft and sticky french ones . One I came across recently was Coeur de Lion Pie D'angloys, which comes nicely boxed as you can see above .

      This cheese is similar to brie in many ways - a soft creamy centre with a slightly orange edible rind, which is lined across. Slicing into this, (right from the fridge) it sticks to the knife, it's texture already melting after just a few moments out of the fridge . If, as many cheeses recommend, you leave this out of the fridge for a good twenty minutes to get to room temperature, this cheese actually melts enough to make it wonderfully spreadable .

      So, what makes this different from any other french soft cheese ? Well, it has just a little honey in the mix, enough to change the flavour quite a lot . Biting into this, it quite literally melts in the mouth, a rich and creamy cheese that coats the tongue and teeth wonderfully, with justa subtle hint of a honey and nutty flavour coming out once the cheese has warmed on the palate a little . I can quite happily nibble this on it's own, but it also works wonderfully on a chunk of crusty french bread .

      I think the honey flavour is very subtle, and I think could easily be overpowered by other flavours, so unlike a good brie I would not really recommend this too much in combination with strong flavours such as cranberry or bacon . A little cucumber sets it off wonderfully though .

      A 200g pack of this costs 1.78 from Sainsburys, I haven't really seen it available in any other supermarkets. Per 100g there are 330 calories, and 29.7g of fat . Even for a cheese, thats quite a lot, so this cheese is certainly one for those more indulgent moments, not one to eat in huge amounts .

      I love this cheese, the soft melting texture and the creamy honey nut flavour make it absolutely delicious, and I certainly recommend it!

      5 stars!
