The Jarlsberg Dilemma (and info on a Jarlsberg Cheese #Giveaway!)

Disclosure: We received a sample of cheese to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

The adults in the house vote for open-face.

We have a little Jarlsberg dilemma going on in our house. The dilemma is not if we like it or not, we know that we like it... the dilemma is whether or not you should eat it open face, with the cheese on top of the cracker...

The kids vote cracker sandwich. ;)

or if you should eat it sandwiched between two crackers.

The adult vote is for open-face, the child vote for the sandwich. Either way, the cheese is absolutely delicious, and that's something we all agree on!

Jarlsberg Cheese, the nationally recognized premium brand of cheese, is thrilled to announce the debut of Jarlsberg Cheese Minis. These are perfect for sending to school for snack time or lunchboxes. They are also great for after school or late night snacking (What?? Who late night snacks around here??? Never mind what time it is while I'm writing this, or the fact that I'm eating a little cheese ;) ). Crafted to replicate the renowned Jarlsberg Cheese wheel which has been popular for decades, Jarlsberg Cheese Minis are a new and convenient snacking option that you're not going to want to miss.

Available nationwide, each mini is individually wrapped, weighs 20 grams, is 100% all natural and has just 70 calories per wheel...all that and it's a good source of calcium and protein too.

Fun Fact: Jarlsberg cheese, a delicious Norwegian recipe with a mild, nutty flavor won the Men's Health Best Foods for Men Award in 2014. Well done, Jarlsberg!

There's a Contest!

Jarlsberg also has a contest going on, if you're interested. All you have to do to enter is take a picture of you and your 'mini me' and upload it to the (Facebook) site. In our house, the mini-me contest entry would have to be of my youngest son and my husband. We always thought my oldest and I looked so much alike...until the youngest was born; he looks JUST like a miniature version of his dad (to the point it makes me laugh out loud sometimes!).

Runner-up Prizes (5): Jarlsberg Cheese Mini Samples

The giveaway runs until February 27th, 2015.

  17. If I must choose between the two I'd say open faced. But I really prefer secret option c - just the cheese. All of the cheese. Just for me. :-)
