heart Shaped Box - Valentine's Cheese Gift

WIN a Valentine Cheese Box worth nearly £40 by crafting your cheesiest love poem!



And we have a winner: Mel Hussey from Swindon wins the Heart-Shaped Box with this superb ode:

“They said that I was crackers to fall for you
They said that you would leave me feeling Blacksticks Blue
They said you’d wreck my Livarot if I met you for wine
But when I felt your first embrace I knew you would be mine
Could a cheese by any other name smell so sweet?
My dear Epoisses, a Romeo, you’ve knocked me off my feet!

It’s not like I am innocent, I’ve been around the board
And some have left me quite unmoved and some I have adored
But when I saw you oozing with that great ‘come hither’ charm
I took no notice of my friends who warned me with alarm
You grabbed me by the throat and I was toppled to the floor
But sweet Epoisses, my Romeo, I’m yours for ever more!

Congratulations to Mel and a huge thanks for everyone else’s brilliant contributions. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Indeed the ‘loved one’ can even be a cheese! For example the wistful ‘when we’re miles apart, I Camembert it’ or the heavily-committed ‘I will love you as Langres as I
Last year’s winner was Susan from Bristol with the superb:

“Blue Monday’s gone since I fondue,
I’m so Boursin with love for you,
You’re the Edam to my Eve, it’s true.
You Caerphilly won my White Heart,
No Munster could tear us apart,
I fell just like the French at Waterloo.”
