I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Arla Dofino. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. #HavartiParty
As a stay-at-home mother of two I have had my fair share of play dates. They are great for the kids and the moms. Sometimes we get so caught up in our life indoors and forget that socialization is important. My favorite part of play dates are sharing our favorite foods with the other kids and learning something about it—very simple learning. Every week we have a theme for lunch and last week was “Our Favorite Parts of a Sandwich”. I signed up to bring the cheese because I have been loving the Arla Dofina deli-slice cheeses I found at Walmart. Three of my favorites are Creamy Havarti, Dill Havarti and Gouda.
Arla Dofino is a line of great cheeses that aren’t your every day slice cheese. We are so used to boring sliced cheese wrapped in cellophane and we honestly don’t even know what real, fresh cheese tastes like anymore. When you hear the names Havarti and Gouda you think of a fancy cheese plate at a wine tasting or something like that, but it doesn’t have to be that way. I am happy to have made the switch to the Arla Dofino line for all of my sandwich needs. So it makes perfect sense that these are the cheeses I am packing on my way to a play date.
When I got to my play date the kids played hard and they worked up a hunger, and quite frankly so did all the moms. While we were making the sandwiches the moms sort of made weird faces at me. I asked what was going on and they all said, “My kid isn’t going to eat that.” I couldn’t believe that they were giving me push back on REAL cheese. I told them to not explain the cheese to their kids before they ate it and they wouldn’t know the difference, but I was wrong. When those kids bit into those sandwiches the kids all actually started talking about how much flavor was in the cheese and how they liked the difference. That lead the mothers into eating their own sandwiches and I am happy to say that I won them all over.
My husband and I also grill out in the back yard pretty often so Sunday we had a little party for the people that work for him. I sat out all of the cheese choices, and guess what my son chose? Creamy Havarti! Such a victory to have the kids choose the goodness on their own. #HavartiParty
