Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Wedges

This snack was introduced to me by my homie and business partner (that sounds weird) Wezz. He's less about the ready-to-eat snacks as he is about the accumulation of snack-like ingredients which can be combined using some sort of simple recipe. For example, slices of apple topped off with a spread of Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Wedges.

I'd heard of the brand before, but had never really gotten up into this territory of cheese. I've dabbled in the realm of Brie, but this was pretty snacktastic (I promise that's the first and last time that adjective will ever appear in this blog). The wedges are individually wrapped in foil and arranged in a pie structure. After meticulously opening each tiny chunk, you'll find yourself face to face with a lovely little cheese morsel whose consistency is not unlike that of cream cheese. But it tastes like Swiss cheese!

Taste (7) Pretty damn tasty. Swiss isn't my favorite cheese, but this is good stuff... Smooth and subtlely salty.
Packaging (8) Outstanding. The wedges arranged into a circle is so deceptively simple. Unwrapping each wedge is like opening a new toy. The cow illustration is pretty hot shit itself.
Overall snackability rating (8) Try it on apples, carrots, celery, sourdough or French bread, or maybe even graham crackers.

my mom would prepare me the banana+laughing cow snack as part of my after school muppets watching regimen. also, is Beard Papa's internationally known? if so you should hit that up. i think i became paralyzed that last time i had the caramel cream puff. in a good way

Banana + cheese sounds super good. My after-school Scooby-Doo / GI Joe snack combo was Ritz crackers with peanut butter and a slice of Muenster cheese.

Beard Papa! Wait, I had something like that in Japan and was pretty much ready to stop eating all other food after I had it. I think the name was a little different but I think it was the same thing. I'm sure I kept the receipt, so I'll dig around and try to find it.

Laughing Cow is a long time favorite. Plus, those wedges are a great cheese treat for times when you don't have access to refrigeration.

Ahhh. Dairy that you don't refrigerate. MMMM MMM Good.

These are easy to steal if you're just in the grocery store to buy mixers or something. They're right there!
