I love the stuff! I think they make it in a Swiss and an Herb flavor. I have not tried the swiss, as I am not a swiss cheese fan, but love the herb stuff!!! It is sooo ymmy spread on a turkey sandwich or turkey/tortilla roll up. You usually find it in front of the deli in a specialty cheese type area of your grocery store, but I usually buy mine at Trader Joes. Love that store as much as the laughing cow! Enjoy!!!

I was at Albertson's yesterday and one pkg. of that stuff is now $4.99!!! I couldn't believe how much it had gone up. I think it's somewhere around $3.00+ at Trader Joe's. If you have a Costco nearby, they sell a 3 pack for less than $6.00. I love the stuff - both flavors.

My trader Joe's has this product for 2.49 each and it is 4.99 at Top Foods!

I love it..on celery, bread, sandwiches, plain, bagel etc... it's great.. and creamy too..I love that especially

I agree, this is great stuff. Last week, I added 2 wedges to potatoes mashed with chicken broth. The cheese melted very quickly and the potatoes were VERY yummy.

I love it! I marinated a portabello mushroom in ff italian dsg and put under the broiler for a few minutes - the last little bit I put on one of the Laughing Cow Baby Bells - Yummy! The lite swiss wedges are great too - they don't taste like swiss to me - they are so good and creamy! I also cut up half of a baby bell to put in my fajita - yum!

Just wanted to post that I HATE Swiss cheese, but I LOVE the LC Swiss cheese wedges. They don't taste at all like Swiss to me! :)

OK, you guys, I have just got to try some of this, but does anyone know of store chains in NC that might carry it. I can't recall ever seeing it. How is it packaged and what color is the packaging?

Sabrina, In Kroger's I usually find it near the other packaged cheeses, like the singles and the shredded bags, but at Walmart it's usually in the Deli section. At Sam's it's near the other bulk cheeses. HTH

Hi! I checked out their website and they have a store finder so you can tell if it is available near you. The site is: http://www.laughingcow.com/lc/lc.nsf/Home?OpenForm

A couple of weeks ago, I also got a tub of it in Super Walmart. The tub is the same size as the Philadelphia brand soft cream cheese tubs. It isn't even posted as a product on the company website! I wonder if they are testing it in various markets? It does have "NEW" on the package.

 

Here is the nutritional value of the soft tub: (5.8 oz tub)

 

serving size: 30 g (5 servings per container, so about 1.16 oz)

calories: 45

Total fat: 3 gr

Fiber: 0 gr

 

It is great on Rye Crisp or Wasa crackers. So far, the Walmart at 75 and Central Expressway is the only place I have seen it sold.

 

I wish we had Trader Joe's here in Dallas. I am lucky that they are in Cincinnati where my corporate office is, so next month I am going to buy some at $2.49 to bring home to Dallas. That is cheaper than anywhere here.
