The orange comes from Annatto which is created from the seeds of the achiote tree. Not only does it give Blacksticks Blue a great all year round tan, it adds a subtle flavour that simply doesn't exist without it.
As comfortable on a cheeseboard as it is in a sandwich, Blacksticks Blue is truly versatile. We pair it with sweet or sharp flavours to create a real contrast. It can be melted and often switched with cheddar for more depth and complex flavour.
Yes! It safe to eat and adds to the flavour. Personally, it's one of our favourite parts...
