The Countdown to Christmas is on!

Nov 29, 2023

The countdown to Christmas has truly begun. The decs are up, office parties are in full flow and festive tunes are taking over the airways everywhere.

Here over at Applewood HQ, we love everything about the festive season, particularly because everything is so cheesy in more ways than one. You know what we are talking about, Love Actually, The Holiday, Michael Bauble, we just can’t get enough of THE cheese that is Christmas music and movies!

But on a more serious note, we all know that the traditional cheeseboard takes centre stage at any festive gathering and Applewood, being the UK’s number one smoky cheese, is always centre stage on cheeseboards up and down the country.

Applewood also makes a great addition to any festive recipe. Have you tried the recipe for our Cheesy Stuffed Pigs in Blankets? Who doesn’t love pigs in blanket; the plant-based options are incredible too. But our Applewood recipe includes pigs in blankets wrapped in puff pastry and of course lashes of Applewood.

But Christmas isn’t just about turkey and all the trimmings, when you are hosting friends and family for more than a day, you need some picky bits to keep them going, which is why we have come up with our #pickybits campaign on socials.

Check out our Instagram, Facebook and TikTok channels to see a multitude of #pickybits ideas; from cheese bites, cheese stars and cheddar cheese wreath board, we have some cracking #pickybits recipes to help you and your guests graze your way through Christmas 2023.
