Advantages: great taste, suitable for those who need a lactose free diet
Disadvantages: slightly more expensive than normal cheese and small quantitys. Only one flavour strength to choose!
I LOOOOOOOVE cheese, so much so that there used to be very very little I would eat without adding cheese (I used to even melt cheese and eat it on Hoola hoop crisps!)...I was like a little mouse! My whole life I have suffered from sore stomachs, constipation and bloating and been diagnosed with IBS. I understand now that I have these problematic due to Elhers Danlos syndrome hypermobility type (I know people don't know a lot about this so feel free to read my review on this to learn more) however my IBS is made worse by eating or drinking any products which contains lactose....I though this meant no more cheese for little mouse *cries* ....until a walk round the supermarket had me stumble across Arlas' lacto free cheese!
When on the hunt for this cheese your task is simple, you must follow your nose to the cheese isle of your local supermarket, sneak a look at the variety of cheeses and locate your prey, it is easy to find with it's white packaging complte witharge cow face on the front, this cheeses skin makes it stand out from the rest making tracking the tasty cheese very easy....*evil laugh*. Once you have Lactofree cheese in you possesion you must ensure it's safe delivery to the checkout where.you will.be expected to pay a small sum of money for your catch (I shop in morrisons and pay one pound eighty and it's price is similar elaewhere). Once I take my prize back to my lair it is kept very safe from other mice, it clearly says that it is lacto free and the cow warns of any would be cheese theifs! You don't get a huge amount in the packet so it is imperitive to keep safe, unlike he lacto free yogurts I have tried abd others have taken without noticing this packaging gives good warning to those who ahould not be sniffing around it!
* a hint for the anti-shopping mice*
Hate shopping? A look on WWW.lactofree.co.UK will help you find and order this cheese and other lacto free products online, saving you a trip to the supermarket!
* lacto free cheese? Yes please! *
The most important thing about this cheese is that it is so similar to normal cheese that even the most fussy mice can't s notice the difference! It only comes in one strength and although this is great to sasafy my cheese cravings it would be fantastic if it was made in a choice of flavour strenghts. The texture of the cheese is great, definitl similar to other demo hard cheeses ans is not rubbery which I had been scared it might be! It is availible in soft aswell which tastes just as great, i prefer the semi hard but that is just down to individual cheese preference!I have used this cheese in macaroni and sandwiches and always recieve compliments!
* value for money for mice families?*
You pay slightly more for this cheese for less quantity than you do for your normal cheddar and it only comes in he one relativly small size, it would be nice to see a family sized version to provide famillys where lactose free diets are needed! I wouldn't let the price be to much of a difference as it is still not too expensive and the satisfaction of eating cheese.again is well worth it!
Finally I can satisfy my cravings!
Summary: I no longer have to miss out on great tasting cheese!
