Day 215

Mini Babybel Cheese

What kind of cheese is Babybel? It was hard to say. So I went to their website. But all that told me is it’s a “sophisticated cheese on-the-go.” That doesn’t really clear things up. It took a little more digging to find out it’s a variety of edam, a semi-hard cheese from the Netherlands. (Although the Babybel brand hails from France.) I’d never heard of edam cheese. And I hope to never hear of it again. The mini babybel packaging — with its teensy wax shell — is super cute, but that’s the nicest thing I can say about it.

  1. Edam is a mild, white, cheddar cheese. I ate a lot of it in New Zealand, but haven’t seen it in the US. And, haven’t tried the Babybel… I would agree it’s not too enticing.

  2. That’s too bad … I like babybel

  3. Is it the feel you didn’t like? I like the flavor but think it’s rather too soft for cheese.

  4. It was everything. But unmelted cheese is one of my top “don’ts,” so I guess that’s not very surprising.
