The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco and Chipotle Flavor Spreadable Cheese Wedges

What do you do when you crave cheese, but not all the fat that goes with it - not to mention that you cannot limit your portion once a piece goes in your mouth?! Well, my solution is to always have some spreadable cheese wedges on hand. While I was replenishing my supply, I came across The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle Flavor Spreadable Cheese Wedges - it's described as, made with real queso fresco and chipotle peppers ... a great way to add spice to your favorite dishes without stacking up the calories.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 wedge (21 grams)
Calories: 35
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 3%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 240 mg, 10%
Carbohydrates: 2 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugars: 1 gram
Protein: 2 grams

At snack time, I spread a wedge on a few (or maybe more than a few) Keebler Town House Light Buttery Wheat Crackers (Review) - the cheese was creamy, soft and very spreadable. I didn't get much of a spicy kick though and since it says Chipotle, I expected that it would bring the heat! I also sat down and ate a wedge while writing this review - just trying to savor each bite, and that's when a little more of the spicy chipotle flavor came out. BUT if the Laughing Cow Queso Fresco & Chipotle Cheese Wedge was in a contest with Weight Watchers Jalapeno Cheese Wedges (Review), I would give the prize to the Weight Watchers cheese.

Each wedge of the The Laughing Light Cow Queso Fresco & Chipotle Flavor Spreadable Cheese provides 35 calories from 1.5 grams of total fat (3% of the daily value) which includes 1 gram of saturated fat (5% of the DV), 240 mg sodium (10% of the DV), 1 gram of sugars (no fiber) and 2 grams of protein. The ingredients include, cheddar, light cheddar, queso fresco and semi-soft cheeses (cultured milk and skim milk, salt, enzymes), whey, cream, chipotle peppers, sodium phosphate, sodium citrate, natural flavors.

I purchased a pack with 8 wedges for $2.69, and I would buy these again just to get some flavor - although it's not that much different from the The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss Wedges (Review).
