Cabot Creamery Reduced Fat Cheese Box Giveaway! CLOSED

26 May

 

Who doesn’t love cheese? I know I do and I was so excited when I received some amazing samples from Cabot Creamery. Cabots is a farm family-owned cooperative located in the hills of Vermont producing award-winning cheeses and they are giving away a wonderful Reduced Fat gift box filled with lots of goodies inside!  

 

NACHOS!!!

 

One of my favorite things in the world is cheese. I love it!! I eat it daily and cook with it all the time.  But, have you ever tried reduced fat or fat free cheese? They are usually gross, taste like rubber and don’t melt. BUT, then I was lucky enough to try Cabot’s new reduced fat cheeses!!! YUMMMMM!!

I was very excited to try the cheeses they sent me! The first thing I tried were the 2 different types of “Serious Snacking” cheeses they sent.

    I want to win!! I used to buy the reduced fat cheddar single snackers from Costco. When I found out they were discountinuing them, I bought 8 bags and froze them.  I finished my last bag last October!  I have yet to find any of these locally, but I’ll continue searching.  Regardless, I’m obsessed with Cabot cheeses and can’t think of a better way to sample and enjoy their other flavors than to win this give-away!

    Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a cheese fanatic and passionate about the delectable goodness of it.  My favorite way to eat cheese is a hard one, because I will eat it on anything and love every minute of it, but I’d say that either eating it in it’s pure form at room temperature or melting it in a bowl in the microwave and eating with any accompaniaments is my favorite way to enjoy cheese.  Eating it melted, straight from the bowl was my favorite after-school snack and I haven’t seemed to change much at 34 years old!

    I have “liked” you on Facebook and glad I did even if I’m not a winner! Great site!
