We were first introduced to The Laughing Cow Cheese when we were in high school.

A friend who had enjoyed them France found them in the U.S., brought some for lunch and gave me a wedge.

We were delighted by the wedges of soft cheese wrapped in foil, and the red tab that neatly opened it.

We loved not just the novelty of the wedges, but the flavor.

The wedge (now called Original Creamy) tasted a bit like cream cheese; and what a great excuse to eat cream cheese!

The cheese is actually a blend of cream, milk and both fresh and aged cheeses, including Comté. It’s a creamy, satisfying snack.

And it’s more than a snack, as you can see in photos #5 and #6.

The wedges can spend the day out of the fridge, in your bag or pocket for easy snacking.

In those days, the brand was known in the U.S. by its French name, La Vache Qui Rit (The Laughing Cow in French), later Americanized.

The spreadable wedges have been made by Fromageries Bel since 1921.

It’s their 100th anniversary!

They sent us a red velvet anniversary cake (photo # 1) with cream cheese frosting made with The Laughing Cow Original cheese.

It was so good, that when when it arrived frozen, we cut a wedge and began the celebration.

(You may or may not be a frozen cake fan. Sometimes, we find that the frozen cake is even more delicious than in its natural state. We just love the frozen frosting!)

The cake is a limited-edition made in partnership with Daisy Cakes Bakery.

It’s available online at

And it’s only $19.21, a nod to The Laughing Cow’s founding year.

Plus, to celebrate the anniversary, there are new varieties of The Laughing Cow cheese.

The Laughing Cow Blends are three new varieties of the cheese wedge that that blends creamy Laughing Cow cheese with nutritious legumes, nicely seasoned.

Each wedge delivers 2g of protein, plus calcium and vitamin E, fiber and antioxidants.

So welcome to the line:

  • Chickpea & Cheese with Herb (photos #2 and #4)
  • Lentil & Cheese with Curry
  • Red Bean & Cheese with Paprika (photo #3)
    They join a line of wedges that includes:

  • Creamy Original
  • Creamy Light
  • Creamy Garlic & Herb
  • Creamy Spicy Pepper Jack
  • Creamy Asiago
  • Creamy Aged White Cheddar
  • Creamy Aged Cheddar & Bacon

    More nutrition has also been added to the snack cups, which were designed to fit perfectly into a car’s cup holders.

    We don’t have a car (living in New York City), but we love snacking on Cheese Dippers, cups of dippable Laughing Cow cheese packaged with breadsticks (only 140 calories per cup with 5g of protein).

    The three newcomers include:

  • Creamy Original paired with whole wheat breadsticks
  • Creamy White Cheddar paired with pretzel breadsticks
  • Creamy Herbs paired with multigrain breadsticks
    They join:
