I'm a bit of a cheese fiend, and I love trying new flavours, so when I spotted this in amongst the Cream Cheese in Sainsburys , I was tempted by it's cute little box, a lovely light blue with cute little cartoon angels. It also had the words 'Heavenly Creamy' on the front - and into my basket the little 125g pot went, costing me just £1.49.
Opening it up, inside is a soft whte rind cheese, similar in appearance to Brie and Camembert, although this differs in being much softer and spreadable right out of the fridge .Leaving it on the side for 15 minutes or so before using softens it up even more, and makes it really easy to spread - I enjoyed mine with some crusty French bread .
Biting into it, the flavour was lovely, intensely creamy, and almost sticking to my mouth. It was quite rich, and there was a slight subtle sweetness in the taste. It certainly felt very indulgent and sinful to eat. I also tried it combined with a little cranberry sauce, although this didn't work so well as the delicate flavour was easily overpowered . This is a cheese that needs to be eaten alone.
Per 100g, this cheese contains 31g of fat and 345 calories. That's a lot, but this cheese is so nice that it's worth it, and is something I would eat as an occasional treat rather than every day .
I really like this cheese and will certainly be buying it again. 5 stars .
