While I was standing there in the store, I started having dreams of cutting off a little chunk and eating it, as well as shredding the cheese to put it in my favorite healthy recipes. Then, I noticed there were other flavors I could buy, namely: Sharp Cheddar, Swiss, Mild Mexican, Garden Vegetable, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella and Jalapeno Jack. Picking one was a difficult decision, and I ultimately went with the Cheddar since it was the first one that caught my eye. I took it home and immediately cut off and weighed a 1 ounce slice with my food scale. I wasn't overly wowed by the taste of the cheese on its own for a snack, but once I started adding it to my cooked foods and to my sandwiches I was extremely impressed. It really does melt, making it way better than most fat-free cheeses for cooking!
Apparently this cheese has been around for over a decade and is available in all sorts of stores beyond Whole Foods (like Albertsons, Safeway, Price Chopper, etc.), so I'm surprised I've never seen it before. Maybe I'm the only one? Anyway, I'm definitely happy to have heard of it now!
By the way, I did a posting a few months ago about cooking with low fat and non fat cheese that might be interesting to read as well.
PS. I'm working on a recipe for low calorie fat free cheddar sauce using this cheese, which I will write about in a future posting. I'm also thinking about melting this cheese across some huuraw chips, which I think may be divine!
