Chances are that you have seen this cheese about, even if you haven't tried it. We really like it in our house but because it contains 120 calories and 13g of fat per serving, we do have to limit our intake! Having said that, it was Christmas and as per the tradition, cheese and crackers was on the menu, and no decent cheese board would be complete without Boursin. Does anyone else notice that the only time they eat cheese and biscuits tends to be at the festive season, or is that just me?
The cheese comes in a 150g foil wrapped parcel which is sold inside a cardboard box which is white with green writing and a clove of garlic on the front. You will usually pay around £1.25 for a pack and different flavours can also be purchased. It is best to keep it in an airtight container once opened to prevent the smell of garlic tainting everything in your fridge!
The taste is extremely creamy and indulgent with a decent taste of garlic which isn't too mild or too strong. The consistency of the cheese is really smooth making it a great accompaniment to crunchy biscuits such as Hovis. I also like to eat it with crunchy warm french bread, straight from the oven.
Ingredients as follows:
Pasteurized Cultured Milk and Cream
There are plenty of other cheeses with garlic available to buy but in my opinion, this one is the best and so worth paying a little extra for. If you are a fan of cheese containing garlic then you should definitely try this one as it is quite special, even if it is full of calories!
Summary: Well worth buying
