Wallace loves his Wensleydale, and it's safe to say that
   the Wensleydale Creamery loves Wallace, and Gromit, and
   Nick Park for having put their fabulous cheese in the
   popular spotlight.

   To celebrate the arrival of "Were-Rabbit" Wensleydale
   put together a scrummy selection of flavoured cheeses
   and peripherals. They were available in bigger supermarkets
   here in the UK, or they coul be purchased via mail order,
   direct from the company...

 "Crackers About Cheese" gift pack  Wensleydale cheese truckle + a jar of Middle Age Spread

   "Crackers about Cheese" gift pack
   This handsome gift set featured a 200g Waxed Cheese
   Truckle, a packet of Cocktail Oatcakes, and best of all,
   a jar of Wallace's "Middle Age Spread". Basically, it's a
   caramelised onion chutney. Spread it on your toast,
   with Wensleydale, and tuck in to the tastiest cheese
   slice this side of West Wallaby Street...

   Miniature Cheese gift pack

   Miniature Waxed Cheese selection
   There were three 100g cheeses included in this pack.
   They were flavoured for kids, but frankly, us adults
   could enjoy 'em just as much. They had great labels too...

    • Wensleydale with Carrot & Orange  (orange wax)    
    • Red Leicester with Leek (white wax)
    • Cheddar with Cherrybell Peppers
      & Sundried Tomatoes (red wax)

   Red Leicester with Leek - from the Wensleydale Creamery Cheddar with Cherrybell Peppers & Sundried Tomatoes - from the Wensleydale Creamery

   Vegetable Plot layered cheese
   This was different. It was a colourful cheese slice, like a slice
   of birthday cake, weighing 140g. The layers being comprised
   of the three cheeses from the gift pack, above. In other
   words: Wensleydale with Carrot & Orange, Red Leicester
   with Leek, and Cheddar with Cherrybell Peppers & Sundried
   Tomatoes. It's also interesting to note that this product
   took its name from the original title of the film. Way
   back in 2002, the movie was being billed as "The Great
   Vegetable Plot"...

   200g + 500g Wensleydale cheese truckles
   What more can one add? - If you hankered for cheese
   these two truckles fit the bill perfectly. The 200g truckle
   was presented in a red wax coat, whilst the 500g version
   was in cheesey white...

   Sadly, most of the range has now been dropped by the
   manufacturers, but you can still get your paws on those
   last two truckles, direct from the Wensleydale Creamery.
