If, like most of us, you are still struggling to fix together some last minute 4th of July plans, it can be a daunting task if you’ve decided to host your own little get together. With friends and family all with different palettes and picky preferences, finding the perfect snacks and appetizers to munch on can be tricky. Luckily, it’s hard to find a person who doesn’t like cheese. And with Alouette‘s two brand new low-calorie cheeses that recently launched, whipping up something last minute shouldn’t be a problem!

alouette-cheesesFor those of you unfamiliar with Alouette, it began back in the 1970s when renowned French cheese maker Jean-Noel Bongrain decided to bring his skills and his cheeses to America. Starting up in Pennsylvania, the company sought to create a new line of original, specialty cheeses, that combined traditional French recipes with U.S. flavors.

 

Instead of spending time in the kitchen over the holiday weekend, let Le Bon Dip make your workload easier. The new cheese and chunky vegetable dips are the perfect way to get the party started. With no artificial flavors or colors and only 50 calories or less per serving, these dips are a guilt-free way to enjoy the holiday. The dips consist of a premium blend of soft cheese, chunky vegetables and a touch of Greek yogurt and are perfect with chips, crackers, veggies and more. Plus, they come in four tangy flavors, including Zesty Garden Salsa, Roasted Red Pepper & Chickpea, Basil Zucchini & Parmesan, and Fire Roasted Vegetables.

More into spreading than dipping? Le Petite Fromage individual cheeses are perfect for on-the-go snacking, but also for at-home entertaining. The perfectly portioned mini cheeses are 100% additive and preservative free and are only 40 calories per serving! The small packets of cheese pack quite the punch of flavor and are super indulgent. The blend of cheese, with a touch of yogurt, veggies and spices, come in a variety of flavors such as Cucumber & Dill, Parmesan & Basil, Garlic & Herb and Garden Salsa.

Quick, easy and hassle-free, these cheeses promise to be the hit of any party. Plus, they clock in at only $3.99-$4.29, ensuring you save plenty of moola to spend on the liquor. What’re you waiting for? Get shopping!
