The Laughing Cow recently got in touch to ask if we'd like to try some of their Mini Cravings. They are individually-wrapped mini cubes of deliciously soft and creamy cheese that come in a variety of flavours. They are perfect for popping in lunchboxes and they are also great as a guilt-free snack because each cube only contains 14 calories. Be warned, you won't be able to stop at one though !
We have already tried (numerous times) and loved a very similar product in France called Apéricubes that has been around for years, so I was intrigued to see how well the Laughing Cow Mini Cravings would compare. We received three packs and we loved all of them, even the blue cheese ones that I thought nobody would like ! The first pack was Mini Cravings Herbs with Ham & Herbs, Garlic & Herbs and Three Cheese, the second was Mini Cravings Cheese with Cheddar, Smoked Cheese and Blue Cheese and the third was Mini Cravings Original. I thought the Original ones might be a bit bland but they got an equally positive reaction as the flavoured ones.
They're lovely straight from the fridge when you fancy a quick snack that won't spoil your appetite, in picnics or even tossed into salads. They have a lovely creamy flavour that appeals equally to kids and grown-ups and the Madhouse kids are quite happy to have a handful of these in place of sweets, crisps or biscuits when they want a snack. The three packs didn't last for long and the kids have already asked if we can buy more so I can see these becoming a fridge staple.
