Finlandia Cheese Review...
"Finlandia® has a variety of cheese ranging, from Swiss, Light Swiss, Havarti to Muenster and Gouda. Finlandia’s cheeses are all natural, hormone-free and naturally lactose-free, but the true point of difference is the taste. With over 100 years of master cheese making experience, Finlandia uses only the highest quality ingredients and carefully ages the cheese to deliver a distinctly delicious nutty and robust flavor.
For those watching their health and waistline, Finlandia recently introduced New Lacey Swiss Cheese, a truly delicious Swiss cheese but without the fat and sodium of traditional Swiss. The new debut boasts a light and airy texture and 24% less fat than regular Swiss Cheese. Aged for over 60 days, the flavor is so authentic; it’s hard to tell Finlandia Lacey Swiss is actually a low fat cheese. Finlandia cheeses can be found in the Deli section of supermarkets and at deli counters.
