While strawberries and cream is one of the most romantic deserts you can eat, a cheese platter is one of the most romantic meals, which is why budget supermarket Lidl has decided to combine the two for loved-up couples this Valentine’s Day.
It has launched a strawberries and cream-flavoured white Stilton, packaged in an inviting red heart-shaped block.
The £2.49 product could be the perfect accompaniment to a luxury cheese board with some crackers and grapes, making it a good choice for a romantic night in on February 14th.
While it might not be to the taste of cheese connoisseurs, or even those who like to keep sweet and savoury flavours separate, it is likely to go down well with last-minute shoppers looking for something special to dine on this Friday.
This is not the only unique offering available at Lidl for Valentine’s Day, as it is also selling a premium houmous selection containing basil and olive oil houmous topped with pesto and parmesan; a beetroot and mint variety with beetroot tapenade; and a red pepper version with sun-blushed red pepper tapenade and feta cheese.
Shoppers can also pick up heart-shaped macarons, a cherry and custard tart, and ‘For You With Love’ jelly sweets.
Domino’s is also launching a new pizza ahead of Valentine’s Day. The Catalan chicken and chorizo pizza has a double portion of Catalan-flavoured chicken, chorizo, onions, and green and red peppers.
It offered the flavour last February 14th and is bringing it back after it proved incredibly popular with couples who wanted a date night in on 2019’s Valentine’s Day.
