Milk Link is increasing its Tickler Cheddar range with a limited-edition 500g extra mature pack for the festive season.

The pack (rsp: £5.49), targeted at shoppers looking to buy for Christmas cheeseboards, will be stocked exclusively by Waitrose. The launch follows the introduction of a 350g pack. The standard size for Tickler is 200g.

Milk Link marketing director Hamish Renton said the packs would be "perfect for those expecting a few extra house guests with discerning tastes".
