In news that will come as music to the ears of cheese lovers (which is basically everyone right?), Nando’s has added halloumi sticks to its UK menu.

The chicken emporium announced a few new items on its menu, but it was the squeaky cheese wedges that have caused the most excitement.

Nando’s tweeted a mouthwatering, zoomed-in picture of their latest treat, and more than a thousand fans have already liked the post.

The halloumi fries will cost a rather modest £3.70 for five, including a side of chilli jam for dipping.

And if Twitter is anything to go by, they’re going to be an extremely popular option.

Nando’s already had a few halloumi options on its menu, including veggies’ favourite the portobello mushroom and halloumi burger plus a side order option of grilled halloumi cheese, but this is the first time it’s available as a starter in its own right.

And about time too, we say.

Nando’s said: ‘The famous squeaky cheese has long been the perfect compliment to Nando’s fiery brand of Southern African PERi-PERi chicken, and is now rewarded with its very own starter.

‘Consisting of five chunky sticks of halloumi, grilled until golden brown, and served with a pot of Nando’s sticky, sweet chilli jam for dipping; addiction levels will be high.’
