My love of cheese came from living in Wisconsin for a few years. It's known as the dairy state and we naturally always had really good cheese. I can't get enough of the stuff, so when I came across Frigo Cheese Heads Light Swirls String Cheese in Wal-Mart for about $5.00, I naturally reached for it to check it out. When I saw that each stick was only 60 calories, it immediately went into my grocery cart.
As soon as I got to my car, I tore open the bag and bit into one of the sticks. Mmm ... I could not believe it! Even if they had 50% less fat and 25% less calories, it still tasted just like real cheese. The Swirlz variety have mozzarella and cheddar and I could even individually taste each one. I think the only difference between Frigo "Light" and regular string cheeses is that these sticks were a little dryer and easier to peel, so in a way, they are actually better! There wasn't even a gross aftertaste or any weird textures involved. The entire experience was amazing. I actually had to have 2 (while still in the car), since these sticks were just way too good. and the fact that they are individually wrapped makes them easier to carry around for a midday snack .
As I mentioned previously, each 1 ounce stick of Frigo Cheese Heads Light Swirls String Cheese provides 60 calories, 2.5 grams of total fat (4% of the recommended daily amount), 1.5 grams of saturated fat (8% of the RDA), 9% of the RDA for sodium (230 mg), no carbohydrates, 8 grams of protein and 20% of the RDA for calcium.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be buying it again S my budget allows, because the price is certainly higher than some other brands (but the taste is stellar). Another good choice is Sargento Light String Cheese.
