Karoun Dairies great cheese and yogurt and much more!

 Are your family fans of dairy, cheese, yogurt and the like? Well I know my family just adores all of the dairy products they can handle. If you are looking to try something new, a new dairy product that you may have never tried before, something that will be tasty and you will love? I would like to introduce you all to Karoun Dairies they have great cheese and yogurt and much more. Karoun Cheese is award-winning cheese company.  Here is a little more information about the dairy from the website:

Founded in 1992, Karoun is a family-run business reflecting fulfillment of the American dream. The company has continued to grow from creating hand braided String Cheese for local ethnic and specialty grocery stores, to producing a wide variety of Mediterranean specialty cheeses and yogurt products with nationwide mainstream distribution. All Karoun cheeses are natural and handmade using only milk from cows that are free from growth hormones, BGH/rBST, and are Real California Milk certified. All Karoun’s yogurt products (yogurt, kefir cheese (labne) and sour cream) are all natural and OU Kosher certified. 

My family was very fortunate to be able to try out a variety of great products from Karoun Dairies, including:
Mediterranean Lite Kefir Cheese

Traditionally made by draining whey from slightly salted yogurt, Labne is a thick & creamy yogurt cheese and a healthier alternative to regular cream cheese. Now also available in half the fat content, our new Mediterranean Labne Lite is a perfect way to maintain a healthy diet while enjoying delicious kefir cheese.
Now this was something different, when I first read that this was “spreadable yogurt” I have to say I did not know what to think, I thought it was kind of odd?  But my family was interested in checking this cool new (well new to us) product out.  This reminded me of cream cheese, it was easy to spread and had a nice light taste.  This would be great as a spread, for a party with pretzels, or crackers. This was a better version of cream cheese, more tasty, and more spreadable.

Yanni Grilling Cheese 8oz

A traditional semi-firm Mediterranean grilling cheese with a distinctive layered texture. It is mildly salty with a rich buttery taste. Yanni can withstand a tremendous amount of heat without melting. It develops a delicious golden crust when grilled, BBQ.
Grilling cheese, now this was something I could not wait to try. I grilled half of the package of cheese in slices in a pan, and the other half I sliced for a bread version of grilled cheese. My family was amazed, that you could actually grill cheese. I asked my daughter if she would like to try a piece of grilled cheese, she said she would but with “no crusts”! It took a while for her to realize, there was not bread, just browned grilled cheese. She was amazed! My family loved each version, the sandwiches and without. The cheese was more solid than other cheeses, but it had a great salty cheese flavor that we all loved.
Feta Basket Cheese With Kalamata Olives & Thyme

Karoun's creamy Kalamata Olive &Thyme flavored Mediterranean Feta Basket cheese is made with all natural ingredients. Its tantalizing flavor is a perfect complement to salads, sandwiches and fruits.
I love to hose get together’s with my family and friends and we love great appetizers. This feta would make a great addition to any party, it would make a great spread. This Feta Basket Cheese With Kalamata Olives & Thyme, would also be wonderful crumbled on a salad, just mix thing ups a tittle. I am a bit fan of feta, and this is one of the better feta cheese I have ever had. I loved the addition of the Kalamata Olives & Thyme. You could really taste the olives, and the complemented the cheese very well.

Mediterranean Non Fat Yogurt

A key ingredient of a healthy Mediterranean diet, Karoun's nonfat (0% milkfat) yogurt is made with fresh, all natural Real California Milk, and contains live probiotic cultures for improved digestion.
My daughter loves yogurt, all kinds the kids crazy flavors, to adult plain yogurt. She also loves the Greek yogurt that is all the rage these days. She loves the lemony tart flavor that comes with the Greek yogurt. Just a warning all kids may not like the tartness,  this may appeal to adults, and these with more mature palates. But my daughter, just loved this, she ate it from a larger bowl like it was ice cream loving every bite.

Greek Honey Yogurt

Karoun's smooth and creamy Greek style honey plain yogurt is made with fresh, Grade A all natural Real California Milk and contains live probiotic cultures that enhance digestion.
This yogurt had the nice, tangy bite that your expect from Greek yogurt but with a sweet hint of honey. I loved the favor, it worked well in my morning granola. I will definitely be picking up the Greek Honey Yogurt again for myself.
My family just loved the new to us products. Karoun Dairies cheeses are natural and handmade at their state-of-the-art California facility, strictly using only milk from cows that are free from growth hormones, BGH/rBST, and are Real California Milk certified. The result is the best tasting and best for you cheese available.   I know cheddar is great, but it is also great to think outside of the box a bit with dairy, there is so much more out there to enjoy. With Karoun Dairies you are getting quality great tasting products. I would highly recommend them, for any dairy lover. I was so happy that a Wegman’s in Cherry Hill NJ, just minutes from my home sells these great dairy products. I will surely be picking up more for my family.
