The components are processed until a smooth, spread-able texture is achieved. Cold pack signifies that the product is made without the aid of heat, which helps it remain as similar as possible to natural cuts of cheese but with the advantages of being a convenient spread-able form.

Slivered almonds highlight the delicious Swiss flavor, making this smooth, creamy cheese spread the perfect addition to your favorite recipe or spread atop crackers or crusty bread. Each container includes 8 ounces of Swiss Almond Cheese Spread. The cold pack cheese spread does require refrigeration.
