Finlandia Cheese - America's #1 Imported Deli Cheese

Today I would like to talk to you about Finlandia Cheese which is America's #1 imported deli cheese. The Finlandia Cheese line is all-natural and made by master cheese makers who have over 150 years in the cheese making business. When you shop for Finlandia Cheese you can find it in the deli section and purchase it sliced to order or you can purchase it in pre-packaged slices. You will find Swiss Cheese, Lite Swiss Cheese, Lacey Swiss Cheese, Muenster Cheese, Lappi Cheese, Havarti Cheese, Gouda Cheese and several other cheese varieties.

My Review: I received a coupon to go pick up some cheese and to be honest with you...I have never tried this brand of cheese until this review. I decided to pick up a bag of the Finlandia Swiss Cheese in pre-packaged slices since we love swiss cheese here in our home. Later that day my hubby decided to grill up a hamburger and he topped it with a slice of their Swiss cheese, some mushrooms and 2 slices of fried bacon. Within a few minutes the burger was gone and he decided to have a second one. He commented to me that he is loving the Finlandia Swiss Cheese because it has a true full-bodied Swiss Cheese flavor. (some cheeses just taste like rubber cheese with no flavor...but this one...a fabulous full-bodied cheese). In addition, he loves the slice size! He didn't need to throw on 2 floppy cheese slices to get the amount of cheese he wanted on his burger. These cheese slices are a little over-sized and thick! (not paper thin like other brands).
The following day we decided to grill up some Swiss Cheese, Tomato & Bacon sandwiches for lunch. We make them much like a grilled cheese sandwich but we use Swiss Cheese, a thin slice of tomato, a few chopped onions and 2 strips of cooked bacon. Fry it up like a grilled cheese sandwich and enjoy! Again...we only had to use 1 slice of Finlandia cheese for each of our sandwiches. The cheese melted perfectly and oh my gosh...these sandwiches were better than ever because we used the Finlandia Swiss Cheese!

This Finlandia Swiss Cheese is fantastic! We have been using it on various types of sandwiches for the past few days and love it! Matter of fact, it's on my grocery list that is hanging on my refrigerator for when I hit the store on Wednesday! Yes, we are switching over to Finlandia for our Swiss Cheese!
