Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Arla Dofino. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Our family… I swear, we are a bunch of mice! We love all things cheese! All. Things. Cheese.
I would guesstimate that we eat cheese on a daily basis, or at least 5 days a week which is why we love snack time morning, noon, and night with Arla Dofino!
We are new to the Arla Dofino brand, but certainly no stranger to cheese!
Cheese makes a great addition to home lunch during the school day, snack time, made in with our meal, or as a side dish to any meal we sit down to eat!
The Arla Dofino brand has Havarti, Gouda, Edam, and Fontina cheeses.
Our store (be sure to find out where you can purchase in your state) only had Creamy Havarti, Havarti with Dill, and Gouda.
Because we are new to this brand, we stuck with Creamy Havarti and Gouda.
The Havarti cheese was a major hit! The kids (and hubby and I) could not get enough of it! No joke, we ate over half of the block it came in, in a matter of five minutes or less.
As you can see, Baby Girl thought it was just fah-bulous (dah-ling) and the big kids ate it up too! I think besides Baby Girl, I ate the most!
The Creamy Havarti was just that – creamy. Smooth. (And I don’t mean creamy in a liquidy sense that makes the texture off. More of a very smooth, clean taste/feel.) Hubby compared it to a ‘milder mozzarella’ (which I cannot attest too because I personally think mozzarella has no taste and the Havarti definitely did!)
The Gouda on the other hand was not as big of a hit.
Everyone did try it, but the taste had a little… bite to it. It wasn’t necessarily spicy when I say ‘bite’ but it had a very strong cheese flavor. (Hubby was worried it would be a stinky cheese, but it was not. Although I would almost say if a stinky cheese had a weird, tangy, bitey flavor – the Gouda would be like that.)
Fortunately, I found a great recipe from The Naptime Chef, Kelsey Banfield to use the Gouda cheese so I am definitely going to try that!
What is your favorite way to eat Havarti or Gouda?
If you have a recipe, please feel free to leave the link in the comments so I can try it out!
Don’t have a recipe with Havarti or Gouda? How about with Edam or Fontina? I’m all about trying the other cheeses from Arla Dofino!
