Finlandia Cheese Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! So my next review and givaway is for Finlandia Cheese. Finlandia Cheese is the #1 imported cheese brand in the U.S. and offers the most extensive line-ups of premium, all-natural, imported cheeses available in the supermarkets. I received a coupon to get a free Finlandia cheese of my choice as well as 2 discounted coupons. I chose the Swiss deli slices to try out.



I actually tried these deli slices because my dad saw the coupon and said "Finlandia? They have great swiss." So I bought it for him. I had a slice or two to try out but Swiss isn't a big favorite of mine, but my dad enjoys it. First thing he did when he came home actually was try out the cheese, I didn't even ask him to. He said the cheese was just like he remembered it and definitely one of his favorite swiss cheeses. He proceeded to attack at least two more slices of cheese.

It's definitely a mellow flavor, not strong but still super great. It's great for sandwiches especially with deli meats to kind of give a small kick to the coldcut tastes. What I actually liked about these deli slices was how easy they were to peel from one another. Typically deli slices stick together and end up falling apart when you try to peel them off but these came off quite easily. I know, random tidbit, but I actually really really liked that, haha.

But Finlandia is also great because they offer consumers cheeses that are all natural, lactose free and hormone free. Finlandia Cheese is committed to the highest farming ethics, producing the most pure, wholesome and flavorful products. They have a variety of flavors too like gouda, muenster, and havarti. They come in deli slices, deli sticks, and even sliced to order cheeses that you can get sliced from your supermarket's deli selection. Recently they just came out with Lacey Swiss, all natural, contains no hormones and is naturally lactose free. Lacey Swiss contains 25% less fat than regular Swiss and is available sliced-to-order from the deli department. Due to the fact that Finlandia Lacey Swiss is aged for 60 days, anyone who tries it will likely to notice its full flavor that is its key point of differentiation. Lacey Swiss first launched in NJ and is slowing gaining national distribution!

Included in the packet they gave me were also some ideas for recipes like the Classic Lacey Swiss Sandwich; Hot Spinach, Artichoke, & Swiss Cheese Dip; and the Swiss Fondue. To check out these recipes and more check it out on their website here: Tasty Recipes.

Overall, Finlandia cheese is really great and definitely worth checking out and eating. If you're a fan of cheese you will be a fan of Finlandia, that's for sure.

Buy It! Head on over to Finlandia's website to browse
their selection and check out the Stores tab to see where they're selling them near you, for me it's a load of stores from Pathmark to Trader Joe's.
