La Crème Cow Spreadable Cheese - GiveawaySunday, January 22, 2012
Each week where I work, staff members enjoy Friday treat days. We sign up with other staff to bring in a selection of goodies for all to share and it makes morning recess fly by so quickly since there's rarely enough time to savour the tasty treats. This month, I decided to bring in a sampling of La Crème Cow cheese along with some crackers that I had been sent to try out.
Recently, Parmalat Canada launched La Crème Cow, a new line of spreadable snack cheese. It is available in three flavours: Original, Light and Parmesan and Peppercorn. The cheese has a very smooth and creamy texture, and is individually wrapped so you can take it with you on the go.
My lovely La Crème Cow package arrived the night before my scheduled treat day and oh, là, là! Was it ever lovely!
The next day at work, I set out a variety of crackers and bagels along with two packages of the Light variety, two of the Parmesan and Peppercorn and one 12-pack Original. By the time recess was over, all that was left from 36 pieces of cheese were two pieces of Light cheese and four pieces of the Parmesan and Peppercorn. I knew the Light version would be a popular hit because there are a number of staff members who count calories, so that was a nice option since it contains 43% less fat than La Crème Cow Original. I wasn't so surprised about the Parmesan and Peppercorn variety since I personally felt the peppercorn was a bit too strong for my liking. My kids were able to try the original variety and absolutely loved it. They would eat it on its own, if I let them.
|After 15 minutes, only six pieces remained.|
