This stuff is delicious! I could leave it there but I guess I should explain some more!
It is a lovely soft cheese - very much like philidelphia in texture, though softer and lighter I would say. The original version of it has a lovely garlic and herb flavour to it that isn't too strong but is very tasty. It is quite versatile, being as lovely on crackers as it is when used in cooking - particularly when smeared onto chicken breasts (or stuffing them) and then wrapping them in bacon, or when used to stuff tomatoes, mushrooms or peppers.
It comes wrapped in foil in a cardboard box and whilst this is no huge problem I can't help thinking it would be better in a plastic tub, as you can end up wasting a bit of it stuck to the foil and it is a nuisance to seal back up.
It isn't especially cheap, usual well over £2 but it's one of those things which is regularly on offer and to be quite honest it is worth the price as you can tell it is a high quality product. There are also other varieties available, there is a 'light' version for those of you who are calorie conscious and a new 'sundried tomato, onion & garlic' version, although personally I do prefer the original.
