Growing up, I remember people saying that women often marry men that remind them of their fathers. In my case, I’d say that in most ways that isn’t the case – my dad and my husband are very different people. In some ways, however, they are a lot alike. And one of those ways? A serious love of cheese! For both, cheese is their favourite food!
Cheese has always been taken quite seriously by both of the men in my life. Growing up, I remember turning up my nose at 5 year old cheddar and thinking, “I’ve never having that in my fridge!” only to find (surprise surprise) it is again a focal point when I open the refrigerator door.
One way in which my two cheese lovers differ, however, is in their thoughts about cheese. My husband is a purist — he doesn’t like to try new things and, when it does, it only happens after a lot of coaxing, considering other options, more coaxing, muttering and comparing. My dad, on the other hand, is always open to trying new things. So when I had the opportunity to try the new Black Diamond Cheese Spreads, I knew my dad would want to taste them. I was looking forward to hearing what he had to say!
Available in four different flavours; Original, Original Light, Sharp and White Original,
Black Diamond Cheese Spread is a fresh dairy product with superior taste, creamy texture and less sodium content compared to other spreads.
My dad tried the Sharp and White Original flavours and he told me that, while he enjoyed them both, his favourite was definitely the Sharp flavour (not surprising, really, given his love of 5 year old cheddar!). He said his favourite thing is to simply spread it on crackers and enjoy!
I must admit that I like things that are a little more daring, so I plan on using the Original Light Black Diamond Cheese Spread to make Cheddar Chickpea Hummus . I can’t wait to see how it tastes!
