Snack cheese brand Babybel is expanding its lineup of delicious, 100% real cheese offerings this spring with the introduction of Mini Babybel Monterey Jack, the brand's first new flavor since 2014. With this announcement, Babybel is also introducing a newly reformulated Mini Babybel Mozzarella, with an even creamier texture and mild flavor that kids love.

Following extensive research, Babybel found significant consumer demand for Monterey Jack snack options. After nearly 15 months of product development and consumer testing, the brand is thrilled to bring Mini Babybel Monterey Jack to shelves nationwide. This new flavor is mild and creamy with a slight sweetness that offers over 4 grams of protein per serving and is made with 100% real cheese. 

In addition to Monterey Jack, adults and kids alike will also reach for the 100% real cheese of the newly reformulated Mini Babybel Mozzarella, packed with 4 grams of protein and only 70 Calories per serving. While the original mozzarella recipe was first available starting in 2013, consumers can expect this updated version to feature an even creamier, true mozzarella taste. Plus, the new four adorable mascots on the package – deemed the Mozza-Monsters – will have kids excited for snack time!

"The adults and families who love Babybel products are our number one priority, and as their needs change, so do we by evolving our portfolio offerings," said Melanie Nemoy, brand director at Babybel. "Consumers are at the heart of our business decisions, particularly when it comes to new product varieties or reformulations. We sought out their feedback to bring forward Monterey Jack and to improve the Mozzarella that you can try on shelves shelf today."

The new flavor joins Babybel's existing lineup of cheeses and alternative dairy offerings, which are now available in eight varieties. Both Mini Babybel Monterey Jack and Mini Babybel Mozzarella are made with no artificial growth hormones, colors, flavors or preservatives. They're available now at major retailers nationwide including Albertsons, Hy-Vee, Wakefern, and Walmart at a retail price of $7.99 for a 12-count package.
