Thanks to VoxBox and Influenster.com I have had the privilege to try Sargento Cheese Snacks.
I’ll admit. I don’t think I ever bought Sargento Brand Cheeses before… and I don’t know if I would again. My husband and I are string cheese fans. However the cheese must have the right texture and flavor to be considered good.
Thus brings me to SARGENTO! (When you say the name don’t you think it should be shouted as an exclamation, or is that only me?)
I got two Coupons in my VoxBox. One for a FREE package of cheese snacks, and another for $1.00 off cheese snacks. I decided to use them both.
I purchased a package of Mozzarella String Cheese and a package of Sharp Cheddar Cheese Snacks. The packaging itself is sneaky in the fact that it is red and it’s been proven that the color red makes your brain think it’s hungry.
The cheese itself lacked the flavor I was looking for in a SHARP CHEDDAR. There should be some bite to it and when eaten the texture between your teeth should be semi-firm. The taste of it was reminiscent of American cheese… You remember that gross cheese your parents would feed kids in the 80’s. This I definitely wouldn’t buy for myself again. However if I needed a cheese for little kids I might choose this.
The String Cheese was slightly better. In the usual Mozzarella flavor this is a package I may purchase again if I had a coupon. The texture was firmer than the cheddar, and it had all the qualities I look for in string cheese. It peeled apart easily and was sufficiently stringy.
Have you tried using your string cheese for:
Addition to scrambled eggs
Grilled cheese sandwiches
Breaded cheese poppers
Deep fried cheese sticks.
Yeah, we use it a lot.
As a whole, it seems to me that Sargento seems to be a company that spends their time cutting cheese instead of making better cheese.
Go eat some cheese. It’s yummy.
I got my sample and that cute mini snack cheese cooler compliments of Influenster.com for review purposes.
