Review and Giveaway: Finlandia Cheese ( 2 Winners)

March 12, 2011

Here comes another giveaway and review for y’all – this time it is cheese!!! Y’all know how much I LOVE cheese so I was really excited to do a review/giveaway for

A bit about the product:

Finlandia cheese has over 150 years of master cheese making in their background and their expertise is clearly identifiable when you taste the superior flavor of Lacey Swiss. From the first bite one can taste the full flavor. This is due to the fact that it is aged 60 days, more than most other low fat cheeses on the market.  Finlandia Lacey Swiss has a delicate, lacey texture that is lower in fat and salt content for healthier sandwiches and wraps, and can be found at the supermarket deli counter.

Here is a recipe that utilizes Finlandia Cheese:

What Budget Savvy Diva Thinks:

There is a lot that can go wrong with cheese – but Finlandia does it right. We all know what fake icky cheese taste like – well this cheese is the exact opposite. I actually snagged the swiss variety – used it on the Hubby’s sandwiches which got rave reviews plus paired the cheese with slices of apple – a great gluten free treat. Though the cheese does sport a modest price tag – it is wonderful cheese perfect for special everyday occasions.

Budget Savvy Diva Rating: 9.5/10

– Great cheese – but the price tag is not super wallet happy – but I would buy it with a coupon even though it is a $1.00 or $2.00 above competitor cheeses like Kraft.
