Jarlsberg Cheese Snacks

We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

The story of Jarlsberg cheese goes back to the 1950s to a small Norwegian village and a research project conducted by the Dairy Institute at the Agricultural University of Norway. Though we do know that the Ministry of Agriculture sanctioned an application in 1957 for the name Jarlsberg as a new semi-soft, mild, nutty cheese, exactly how the cheese is made and how the holes are formed have remained a well-guarded secret till today.

Jarlsberg is available in the US as a chunk or sliced. Recently, Jarlsberg Cheese Snacks were added to the brand line. Seven ¾-ounce, individually wrapped, cheese sticks come in a 6-ounce package. Each cheese stick has 70 calories, 6 grams of fat, 5 grams of protein, no carb, 200 milligrams of calcium and 100 milligrams of sodium. The cheese sticks are a naturally lactose-free, gluten-free, protein and calcium-rich snack that are worth a try.
