Weight Watchers Cheese Review

Before Weight Watchers® cheese and cream cheese items were available, there were not many options for those who wanted to enjoy great tasting cheese without all the fat and calories. Now, Weight Watchers® shredded cheeses, natural cheese slices, cream cheeses, singles, string cheese, and cheese snacks all provide a delicious, convenient option to high calorie, full-fat cheeses. Enjoy the rich, flavorful taste of cheese for a POINTS® value of just 1 or 2 per serving.

I was recently sent a few coupon vouchers from Weight Watchers so that I could pick out some of their cheese products to review! After checking out all of their cheese products at Wal-Mart I decided to choose the Weight Watchers Natural Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese Snacks and the Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Whipped Cream Cheese Spread. I had never tried any of their cheese products before and I'm glad that I did because they are both sooooo good!

The Natural Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese Snacks come in a bag containing 12 individually wrapped pieces. Let me tell you they are soooo good. They are great for snacking or enjoying with your meal. They have a new easy open tear strip so they are easy to get to and very convenient for popping in your lunch box as well! I will definitely be buying more of these!

Weight Watchers products have a point value for everything that you eat and you get 2 pieces of this cheese for only 1 point! Nutrition Facts:
  • serving size 2 pieces
  • servings per container 6
  • 45 calories per piece / 90 per serving / 50 from fat
  • 3g of fat per piece / 6g per serving
  • 0g of fiber per piece

The next product I reviewed was the Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Whipped Cream Cheese Spread. Can you say yummy!!! I love having a blueberry bagel for breakfast and this is the perfect topping for it! I love that the cream cheese is whipped. It spreads easily and is so creamy. Based on their point value you can have 2 Tbsp's for 1 point! Nutrition Fact:
  • serving size 2 tbsp
  • about 11 serving per container
  • 60 calories per serving / 45 from fat
  • 5 grams of fat per serving
  • 1g of fiber per serving
  • 25% less fat than whipped cream cheese
  • includes prebiotics

I have never tried whipped cream cheese and I will definitely be buying more of this product in the future as well! I am very satisfied with the Weight Watchers Cheese products that I was able to try. They are both delish in my book :)

I want to thank Weight Watchers for letting me review some of their cheese products! (I was sent these products free to review. The things you read here are my honest opinions of the products reviewed and I was not paid in any way to say anything you read.)
