This is fantastic, just like the cheese Mrs Proudfoot in Old Hunstanton used to sell in the 60s!

Very good indeed
Ordered a cloth bound cheddar truckle for son’s wedding 4 years ago and have continued to order each Christmas, Easter when plenty of visitors can enjoy this cheese with us. Now we are ordering for lockdown to make sure we have this delicious cheese to ourselves!
Love the feeling of survived tradition and excellence, which is the essence Quicke’s.
The mature cheddar truckle became part of our Christmas in 2019. It’s back this year as it is now part of the family, who also has to be visited throughout the year. Simply delicious cheddar which keeps really well and so is excellent value for such quality. Postage and packing all great. Merry Christmas.
