Re­turn of the Mull of Kin­tyre truckle

Campbeltown Courier - - FARMING -

A CHEESE prod­uct made in Camp­bel­town’s First Milk cream­ery, which was a firm favourite be­fore it was dis­con­tin­ued, has re­turned.

A truckle is a small round bar­rel of cheese, and Camp­bel­town’s ma­ture ched­dar ver­sion tick­led the taste buds and was al­ways a hit with cus­tomers un­til pro­duc­tion stopped. Now, af­ter a number of years, Mull of Kin­tyre Ma­ture Scot­tish Ched­dar 200g truck­les are back for sale at the cream­ery shop.

They are priced at £3 per truckle for the gen­eral pub­lic and £2 for cream­ery staff, farmer mem­bers and lo­cal busi­nesses.

It will also be on sale in var­i­ous other out­lets through­out Kin­tyre.

A First Milk spokesper­son said: ‘Lo­cal farmer pro­duc­ers are very pleased to see the re­turn of the prod­uct, which was al­ways pop­u­lar lo­cally.’

To cel­e­brate the re­launch, the Mull of Kin­tyre ched­dar Face­book page ran a com­pe­ti­tion to win an ul­ti­mate truckle ham­per.

Those who liked the page, liked and shared the com­pe­ti­tion post, and tagged a friend were en­tered into the con­test and the win­ner will be drawn at ran­dom to­day, Fri­day Oc­to­ber 27.
