Another award winning cheese from The Snowdonia Cheese Company, Green Thunder is a creamy, mature cheddar with garden herbs and a glorious punch of garlic. Wrapped in green wax to keep the flavour in, Green Thunder is one of a range of great cheeses from this farmers' cooperative in the Vale of Clwyd. The cheddar is strong and tangy, the herbs are fresh and zingy and there's enough garlic to protect you from a whole pack of vampires. It's truly wonderful stuff.
What with? All the Snowdonia cheeses look fabulous on a cheeseboard and you'll find Green Thunder disappears like lightning! If you do manage to save a bit, it's tremendous melted on a burger. Our Tomato Chutney is perfect with this garlicky cheddar, just warm some baguettes and pour everyone a glass of Rinascita. Bliss.

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.
