Ilchester, who makes the cheese, says that the flavour first appeared in its cheese advent calendar last year but has returned this year.

It also says that it's made from award-winning Belton’s Wensleydale with gingerbread.

It describes it as "the perfect showpiece for a Christmas cheeseboard".

Each 140g pack costs £1.50 and is available in Sainsbury's stores or online.

Ilchester is also behind a cheese advent calendar.

Behind each door of the advent calendar, there's a miniature cheese and an equally cheesy joke to match.

Alongside Jarlsberg, Double Gloucester, Cheddar cheeses, there's also festive Wensleydale with Cranberries and Gingerbread flavour.
