Pickle Power is a terrific combination of two things that were absolutely made for each other; good strong cheddar and tangy pickled onions. It's very powerful, very tasty and will knock your socks off.
Pickle Power is made by the Snowdonia Cheese Company along with other inspired cheeses like Green Thunder, Ginger Spice and Black Bomber. This farmers' cooperative is dedicated to reviving the art of quality local food and, not surprisingly, can find it hard to keep up with demand.
What with? Pickle Power will liven up an after dinner cheeseboard and probably the evening too. It's tremendous on Rye Wafers with a glass of Taylors Port. Pickle Power is also glorious between two slices of thick crusty bread with lettuce, a dollop of Farmhouse Pickle and a pint of beer on the side.
|Country of Origin||Wales (Snowdonia)|

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.
