Babybel, a French version of Dutch Edam cheese, is sold internationally by 'The Bel Group, France' since 1952. In 1977, the company introduced Babybel' s smaller version 'Mini Babybel', a delightful snack packed with calcium that is ready-to-eat anytime and anywhere. Today nearly 75% of Mini Babybel is consumed outside of France.

Babybel, a semi-hard cheese is made from pasteurised cow milk. It comes in a net bag where each piece features a distinctive, red wax coating. As of now there are seven flavours offered in the US - Original, Sharp Original, Light, Bonbel, White Cheddar, Cheddar, and Gouda.

Babybel is marketed as an on-the-go snack and is available in various flavours. So, jazz up your snack routine and enjoy a sophisticated cheese on-the-go.
