I had an email land in my inbox a couple of weeks ago that told me about such an amazing idea – an idea so amazing I thought it was a wind up at first. The email was from Cheese Posties and told me all about their toasted cheese sandwich subscription service.
There is nothing I love more for lunch than a toasted cheese sandwich. It’s such a simple thing but it’s without a doubt my favourite lunch. Cheese Posties have taken that great lunch one step further and created a subscription service that doesn’t just send a toasted cheese sandwich to your door but they have created a whole range of amazing flavours to really get you excited about a cheese toastie. They gave us the chance to review and within a couple of days two Cheese Posties arrived through the door – they’re the right size to fit through your letterbox so perfect if you’re not often in to get deliveries.
Cheese Posties let you specify everything – whether you’re gluten free, vegetarian, allergic to anything or just don’t like certain fillings. They also have sweet or savoury options and as we eat pretty much anything I told them to just surprise me with the fillings. I was sent Veggie Lasagne and Apple Pie flavours which literally blew my mind – I was expecting cheese and ham, cheese and tomato or maybe even cheese and baked bean – not something so different! I couldn’t wait to try them.
Each pack comes complete with a reusable toaster bag which you are sent with every three deliveries. It also has two slices of good quality bread, all the fillings you need, a pot of butter and a card with the type of toastie and what fillings are included – these look like trading cards and would be great to collect to remember your favourites. There’s also a card that gives instructions on how to construct and cook your Cheese Postie in either the toaster or a pan.
I cooked both my toasties in the toaster and the instructions couldn’t have been simpler. Both the toasties were really lovely and the sweet apple pie one was so lovely and warming but perfect when you need a little bit of a sugar hit – this would be great as an evening or mid morning snack.
I love the Cheese Postie concept and am so glad they emailed me. The Cheese Postie varieties are endless and the two we received show just what sort of thing they can create. If you like to have a treat for lunch once week then this could be for you. Cheese Posties cost a maximum of £3.99 per week but the longer you subscribe the cheaper the service – 8 weeks is £30 so £3.75 per Cheese Postie. You may think that’s expensive for what is essentially a toasted cheese sandwich but for the range of fillings, the convenience and the treat factor I don’t think it’s bad at all. Many people spend a lot more than that on lunch at work every day and you could even get it delivered straight to your office!
