Babybel cheese is a popular brand of small, round, individually portioned cheeses. The cheese originated in France in 1952 and is produced by the French company Bel Group. Babybel is available worldwide and is particularly popular as a convenient and portable snack. Babybel cheese is about the size of a golf ball and is encased in a colourful wax coating. The wax is easy to peel away to reveal the cheese inside. Babybel cheese has a mild and creamy flavour. Original Babybel is made from semi-soft cow's milk cheese, but there are variations made from different cheeses as well.
Babybel cheese can be used in salads, sandwiches, or as an accompaniment to crackers and fruits.
