A ‘match made in heaven’ has secured a spot amongst the shelves of a UK supermarket giant.

Whether you love it or hate it, Marmite has been a staple British tradition for decades.

And now, Marmite Cheddar, the 'perfect combination' of Ilchester Cheddar Cheese and Marmite, the nation's much-loved spread, is available to buy in Iceland stores across the UK.

Ffion Davies, Senior Brand Manager for Ilchester, said: “Marmite Cheddar is the perfect combination of delicious British Cheddar, blended with a tasty hint of salty and savoury Marmite.

"The cheese has been a hit with consumers since it launched with people saying, ‘it makes the best cheese on toast ever!’ and that it is ‘so creamy and flavourful’.

“The listing in Iceland is very welcome and will give Iceland shoppers the chance to snap up this tasty cheese and enjoy it in a sandwich, melted on some toast or in a number of hearty dishes.

"It makes a great addition to a creamy pasta sauce or crumbled over a jacket potato. The list is endless.”

Jolanda Wells, Licensing Manager, at Unilever, said: “We know that the purchase intent from shoppers for products that pair Marmite and cheese is 25% higher than for Marmite alone, and we’re confident that Iceland customers will enjoy the distinctive flavour of Marmite Cheddar.
