Cow Candy, Sun Prairie, Wis., combines the whimsy of the candy aisle with the nutritious goodness of Wisconsin cheese.
The new fruit-flavored Monterey Jack cheese is packed with 15% of the daily value of calcium, 4 grams of protein and just 1-2 grams of sugar per serving.
“As a parent, it can be difficult to find a healthy, easy-to-serve snack that competes with candy," says Danyel O’Connor, founder. "This struggle led to the creation of Cow Candy, a high-quality cheese bursting with fruit flavor to tempt kids' taste buds and establish healthy snacking habits. While the playful colors and flavor combinations may be surprising to adult palettes, we've seen firsthand how quickly even the pickiest little eaters gobble up this sweet/savory snack."
Cow Candy comes in Fruit Punch Jack, Grape Jack, Honey Jack, Orange Jack and Strawberry Jack cheese for under $6.
