Take for example the classic grilled cheese sandwich which still ranks number one with kids and many adults too.

Finlandia cheese is a great choice for adults because it is all natural, hormone-free, and lactose-free.  The milk that is produced in Finland for Finlandia cheese is of excellent quality, both technically and ethically.  The use of the controversial growth hormone rBST is forbidden in Finland so you can be sure that your cheese will always be the purest.

“We know that consumers want to please their families,” says Frank Belfiore, Finlandia Marketing Director.  “We craft our cheese using only the best ingredients and that creates the delicious flavor you’ll find with Finlandia.”

No matter what method you prefer when it comes to preparing you grilled cheese, this is one comfort food that is here to stay, and its versatility is its greatest feature.  So weather you dress it up with Swiss or Muenster or add extras like tomato or bacon, Finlandia’s line up of over a dozen cheeses will keep you on your creative culinary toes.
