The Laughing Cow Has New Cheese Cups So You Can Snack Just About Anywhere

The Laughing Cow is one of the most established brands in the cheese business, having served their soft cheese since 1921. Now, the beloved cheese makers are creating a new convenient, portable, dippable product that’s perfect for snacking on-the-go.

The Laughing Cow’s new cheese cups consist of a creamy, spreadable cheese packed into a portable, snack-sized container. You can get it in three varieties (Original, Swiss Garlic & Herb, or White Cheddar Flavor) and utilize however you wish.

You can spread it onto crostinis or bagels, grab some apples or nuts to dip into it, or even pair it with something sweet, like a nutty brittle. Other easy snack options include veggie kabobs, rice cakes, and grapes.

Or, you can go full Foodbeast on it and create the ultimate bagel sandwich, complete with all of the above.

There’s also always the option of just spooning it out of the cup with your finger and licking it clean. Don’t worry, we won’t judge, because we’ve definitely thought of doing the same thing.

Whatever way you like to enjoy it, the cheese cups are already quite popular on social media. The hashtag #SnackLikeYou can be used to follow along and see how people are snacking with The Laughing Cow, and you can even jump into the conversation yourself.

You can find the new The Laughing Cow Cheese Cups in the deli section of supermarkets and grocery stores nationwide.

Watch Two Strangers Ask For Bites Of Food [CAN I BITE IT?]

In a new FoodbeastTV series, we have resident drunkard Sean and video intern Hayley bumming free food from strangers. Called Can I Bite It?, the two try to see who can get the most free bites from random people.

We swung by a local college campus too see if anyone would be willing to share their lunch.

Here are the rules the two must abide by:

  1. They cannot say the word “Food.”
  2. They cannot use their hands.

Check out how the two manage to get themselves fed with these pretty heavy handicaps. Place your bets, people. My money’s on the girl who doesn’t reek of alcohol and cigarettes.

We Are Not Worthy: Lady Builds the Ultimate Super Bowl Snack Stadium

how-to-make-snack-stadium

I’ve never been a fan of pre-packaged party platters — lifeless celery sticks, ranch, meat and cheese cubes packed air-tight inside cold plastic containers. However, Heather of A Lil Curious created a Super Bowl Snack-Stadium (tutorial here) so breathtaking that it will make you swear off those platters sitting lonely next to the expired potato salad.

Using 22 bankers boxes, aluminum foil pans, styrofoam and lots and lots of super glue, Heather was able to create a beautiful display for her party’s game-day snacks. The “stadium” was filled with a generous amount of chicken wings, onion rings, chips, pizza, deli meat and cheeses, broccoli (some of which were banished to the “outdoors”), cheddar-wrapped hot dogs, bread, and even layered chip dip for the field.

Needless to say, it made for an extraordinary feast. Check out the before and after below:

On Average, Teens Eat 34 Teaspoons of Sugar Daily, and Other Fatty Facts [INFOGRAPHIC]

1 in 3 American children is overweight or obese. Maybe you’ve heard that figure before…maybe you’ve heard it so many times before you don’t even let it sink in. How about the idea that Government Spending on Marketing Healthy Eating and Exercise to kids, while $1.6 billion was spent by the Food Industry on ads that promote food high in calories and low in nutrition, to kids?

Once every couple weeks, us avid foodies suddenly gain a conscious. We suddenly see an infographic or an interesting study that reminds us, “Hey, maybe we shouldn’t eat three packs of Sour Patch Kids a day?” I guess we were due for one today, because across our desks this morning came this compilation of facts from TEACH that does a pretty drastic job of highlighting some worrisome figures amidst our youths eating and activity habits.

Interesting figures, but do they raise any raise specific questions, or inversely make you think, “Oh, whatever?

$51 Million in government pending on marketing of healthy eating and exercise, I know a few folks who would say that’s money that could have been best used elsewhere. $1.6 Billion spent by the food industry to promote their products? A devil’s advocate would ask, “Can you blame them? What are they supposed to do? NOT promote their products?”
