I participated in Mom Blog Tour Sweets & Snacks Expo (#MomBlogTourFF)
on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Moon Cheese products to facilitate my post, but my opinion and creative content are my own.
I can’t remember the last time I left the house without a snack in my purse and didn’t think, “There might be a meltdown.” Not that I will melt down, but the eldest tiny member of my entourage might. Sometimes, I live on the edge, but mostly, I stock my bag with a few good snack options.
Recently, I was introduced to Moon Cheese. Moon Cheese has just one ingredient, cheese, but it’s crunchy! The cheese is dehydrated, so it retains its flavor and is still a high protein, gluten-free snack, but it no longer requires refrigeration. You may have spotted bags at your local Starbucks or at select Target stores. The cheese comes in three flavors: Gouda, cheddar, or pepper jack. I like that the bag is resealable, making it an easy, portable snack option.
One afternoon last week, Princess #1 asked for a snack to enjoy while watching a movie. I went to make her a bit of popcorn and spied a bag of Gouda Moon Cheese on the counter near a bottle of black truffle oil. Inspiration struck, and crunchy Gouda black truffle popcorn was born. So easy, delicious, and the Moon Cheese definitely added a little something extra. She ate her entire bowl, and I was glad I made a little extra to pack for later. Since Moon Cheese doesn’t require refrigeration, I wasn’t worried about packing a “cheesy” snack.
I’ve included a “recipe” below in case you’d like to make the popcorn, but measurements are flexible. You can make the popcorn any way you wish – stove top, air popper, or my usual method, a plain brown paper bag in the microwave. Just don’t use the pre-bagged microwaveable popcorn. When it comes to ingredients in our food, less is more darlings.
