I am looking to feature stores/products/companies that do something “good” – maybe they contribute to a specific cause, or it is a company that does not test on animals, or it is good for the environment, or something like that. That is the goal of this – as well as entertaining you! I like to be entertained too so I will do what I can to make that happen!

am currently on a “restricted diet” aka – watching what I eat, aka – trying to
eat healthier so I can lose some weight.
I love food!
I love Cheez-Its.

went a little like this: healthy breakfast cereal with non-fat milk, a Lean
Cuisine with a low fat yogurt for lunch, strawberries for an afternoon snack….AND
then Arby’s for dinner! HA! Well, so much for that!
just Arby’s – you know, the roast beef
sandwich, smothered in Arby’s sauce – but Arby’s with curly fries – WITH CHEESE!
You have to have the cheese!
brings me to this beauty tonight - Cabot Cheese!
heard about Cabot Cheese a few years ago and have used the Cheddar Powder for
– I like you, but Cheddar Powder makes you so much better!
– you are good too, but I don’t think I could do it without the Cheddar Powder
(okay, well, maybe as long as there is some sort of cheese on you).
– yum, but cheddar (powder) makes it better!
– yes, even plain old rice is great with Cheddar Powder.
the list could go on!
Creamery is a “1,200 farm family dairy cooperative with members in New England
and upstate New York.”Oh and in case that isn't enough - 100% of their profits go back to the farmers.
a cooperative, we emulate the Rochdale Cooperative Principles. We value
community, quality, democracy and local ownership. Our owners serve on school
boards and select boards. They are volunteer firefighters, planning commission
members and Green-Up Day participants.”
addition to Cabot Creamery – they are a big advocate for giving back to the
community. They have sponsored various activities/events in ways to give back
to their communities.
Cabot Creamery, we
understand "Sustainability" to be"living
within our means and ensuring the means to live." Our fundamental
approach to stewardship and social impact is based on the triple bottom line of
social, environmental and economic impacts. Our approach is called
context-based sustainability. The scope of our sustainability efforts runs from
farm-to-fork, but we realize our greatest influence is from the cow to the
creamery and from the creamery to our customers.”
already told you about the Cheddar Powder that they sell but that is only one
in a list of different types of cheese that they sell.
They are known for their cheddar cheeses, but they also have a variety of other types.
*Reduced fat Cheddar
also makes Greek yogurt (in various flavors), cream cheese, whipped cream,
cottage cheese, dips, sour cream, BUTTER (mmmm butter!), and nonfat yogurt.
won’t be sorry if you blow your diet for some of this cheese!
