It's not just a name referring to the color. The Michael Lee Fine Cheeses Company in West Yorkshire, UK, really makes cheese made with charcoal. The company describes it as a "creamy, mature cheddar blended with charcoal." It won the Best New Idea award at the 2014 Farm Shop & Deli Show.

Amy Birkin, a representative of the company, told the Sleaford Target that it wanted to make a black cheese to mark the thirtieth anniversary of the 1984 miners' strike in Britain.
