Norwegian Cow Jumps Over Jarlsberg Moon (very small image)

Jarlsberg, a product of Norway, is a semi-soft part-skim milk cheese, with large “eyes” and mild, mellow-nutty flavor. Traditionally produced and aged, completely natural Jarlsberg is lower in fat and calories than many other cheeses, it’s also a source of protein and calcium. The cheese is classified as semi-soft part skim cheese but, because of the eye formation and the method of product, Jarlsberg has also been classified as a Swiss/Emmenthaler type cheese
