The Laughing Cow Mini Cravings (review)

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 ApĂ©ricubes  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.

Disclosure : We received the product in order to write an honest review.


  1. I tried these when they were on offer for £1 recently and I have to say that I did not like them so they went in the bin and I won't be buying again.

    1. Aww which ones did you try? They taste very similar to Laughing Cow cheese spread really so if you like that, you should like them. All down to personal tastes in the end, I guess !

  2. I havent seen those before- great for packed lunches

  3. I think I'd try the Original for snack boxes at school.
