In my youth, I would not eat an artichoke. To my young mind, something with the word “choke” in it and something that looked like you were eating leaves didn’t make sense to me as a food. As I grew up, I was gradually introduced to the artichoke in the form of spinach & artichoke dip. It quickly became one of my favorite appetizers at restaurants, but as you know, it’s not the healthiest option. Or is it? With Alouette Light Spinach & Artichoke Spreadable Cheese I can get the taste of spinach & artichoke dip without overdoing the fat and calories.
About Alouette Light Spinach & Artichoke Spreadable Cheese
I can’t even tell you how excited I was to open my first tub of Alouette Light Spinach & Artichoke Spreadable Cheese. Alouette Light Spinach & Artichoke Spreadable cheese is made with all-natural ingredients and actually has 50% less fat than regular spreadable cheese and 30% less calories. It’s also gluten-free, in case you have that dietary restriction.
I opened up the container and sniffed. Mmm. It smells deliciously cheese with that little hint of something extra. I took a glance at the instructions and saw there was an option to heat up the cheese. This would make it just like the hot spinach dip I pay $8-$9 for at a restaurant. I popped the cheese into the microwave and in a matter of seconds, it was ready to eat.
I used some crackers as my dipping tool and started eating. If you’re trying to be more sanitary, then you can use a knife to spread it onto the crackers. (It is a spreadable cheese, after all.)
It was DELICIOUS. It had a great cheesiness to it with nice flavor from the spinach and artichoke. What was amazing to me was how light it was to eat. It tasted like I was eating restaurant quality spinach & artichoke dip but without that heaviness that often comes with those dips. The texture was spot on as well. It wasn’t too runny or too thick.
I’m almost embarrassed to admit that I ate almost the entire container… by myself… in one night. The only thing that stopped me was that I ran out of crackers. The next day, I visited the local farmers market and picked up a french baguette. Once that baguette was home, I immediately sliced it up and finished the rest of the Alouette Light Spinach & Artichoke Spreadable Cheese. So good.
Alouette Light Spinach & Artichoke Spreadable Cheese would hands down, without a doubt, be perfect as a snack to keep around the house or as an appetizer to serve at a party. One container won’t be enough, so get at least 2 or 3 and dump them all into a large bowl. You can find Alouette Light Spinach & Artichoke Spreadable Cheese in the specialty cheese case, retailing for $5.49.
