Christmas brings with it a whole host of weird and wonderful foods. Remember pine tree-flavoured crisps?

Online supermarket Ocado doesnt want to miss out on all the fun and has raised the stakes with its mint chocolate chip flavoured cheese, all in the name of Christmas.

Its not often you see the ice cream favourite in cheese form but the supermarket is making it happen, whether the demand for it is there or not.

The Shirevale White Stilton Mint Choc Chip will be available to the public from its website from mid November.

So, would you want to try it?

This unusual cheese is made with pasteurised cows milk in the village of Cropwell Bishop, Leicestershire, by Shirevale: the only dedicated production site of White Stilton in the world, it said in a press release.

Unlike the typical aromatic blue variety, Shirevales White Stilton tastes clean and fresh, which makes it great for blending with unusual, exciting flavours.
