Cabot Serious Snackers- Perfectly sized, mighty tasty, reduced fat cheese snacks!

How great is cheese?  Honestly- is there anything better than sinking your teeth into the creamy and decadent folds of dairy deliciousness?  I didn't think so.  However, it must be noted that cheese, while high in protein and calcium, fat also lurks there making it an enjoyable treat to have only every so often (at least in my world).  So you'll understand my extreme excitement when the kind folks over at Cabot asked if I would like to try their newest creations- Serious Snackers- a brand new snack sized cheese individually wrapped, and with less fat than their original line.

I selected two flavors to try, their 50% Reduced Fat Garlic & Herb Cheddar and their 75% Reduced Fat Habenero.  Ohhhh my goodness.  These are little snacks of heaven, bursting with great flavor, I couldn't even tell that they were reduced fat- and usually I have a keen taste bud for fat.  The Garlic and Herb had subtle hints of delicious savory garlic with a hint of earthy herbs mixed throughout.  The Habenero, I'm sure it comes as no surprise, was my favorite.  Packing some serious heat, my mouth didn't even have time to look for any defects it was immediately consumed by delicious spice.  Exactly my kind of cheese.  I could picture this draped over a big bowl of chili adding a final level of spice.  

I haven't seen these in my grocery store yet, but I am definitely counting down until I do- they were tasty, healthy and completely satisfying for a cheese craving.  I can't wait to try out the other flavors as well: 50% Reduced Fat Sharp  and 50% Reduced Fat Pepper JackBring on the Serious Snackers!

Seriously - how good is cheese?! I love individually portion cheeses. If I could, Id eat a whole wedge. I like the lite babybel rounds but Cabot cheddar is one of my favorites. I'll look for the snack sized packs in the store!
