A cheese with a name like Black Bomber is never going to be subtle. And this is fabulously strong extra mature cheddar. Powerful but mellow, it is slightly sweet with a hint of caramel and has a creamy texture that you don't usually get with cheddars.
Black Bomber is made in Snowdonia from unpasteurised milk and comes as a mini truckle wrapped in black wax. Known as the 'cheese with attitude', it will definitely liven up your cheeseboard.
What with? The creaminess of Black Bomber needs something nice and sweet like Apricot Chutney or Onion Marmalade. Then all you need is a nice glass of red wine. The fiery Spanish Rioja Beronia Gran Reserva is not intimidated by this Welsh Extra Mature Cheddar.

The roots of the Snowdonia Cheese Company evolved from the change in food and farming in the latter part of the last century. The globalised food production model was emerging, and consumers wanted to return to localised foods as an important part of their diet. Snowdonia set out with a 21 year business plan to define itself as a regional champion of food, and to build its market in the UK and in export over the longer term.
One third of the way through that plan, Snowdonia has brought a range of contemporary cheeses into the market, and is now working in additional food categories such as pickles and preserves.
