    Awful. Tastes sort of like brie, but does NOT melt. Kinda seemed like chewing on a brie flavored eraser.

    Doesn’t melt, bland…..I threw the package away after a slice or two. I couldn’t make it work.

    Bought this by accident thinking it was regular brie. Less a piece of food and more a slightly cheesy piece of rubber. This is not brie in the slightest. Had to toss it because there was not really any salvaging it. If you’re gonna eat cheese just get the real stuff. I can assure you that the 30 calories you save is not at all worth it.

    I’m in the minority I guess but I like the light brie and hope they never discontinue it. I don’t care about the calories but I need to limit saturated fat. It tastes good on crackers and grilled sandwiches.

    Chewy, doesn’t melt. Not enough of a calorie deficit to eat this instead of the real deal. I will have to throw it away. Bummer.

    I won’t buy it again. It is rubbery, does not melt, and has little flavor. Threw most of it out.

    As a cheese fiend who is very adventurous I have had some really terrible cheeses in my life.

    To be honest, this isn’t one of them but it isn’t particularly amazing either. I would say a 3.5 rounded to 4 based on the scathing reviews on here.

    It has a very acceptable rind and flavor. Where it disappoints is that for the sacrifice in texture as it’s less fat, the calorie savings just aren’t that much. I would say if it was 60 calories this would be a solid 5.

    To help the texture you definitely need to leave it out at room temperature and eat it with crackers.

    If you don’t care about calories definitely get the imported from France brie. That one is heavenly!

    I don’t understand the negative reviews. We love the light brie and pick it up every time we go to TJ’s

    I would rather have one bite of double cream Brie than a 1000 bites of this. Even if you try and melt it it just tastes like warm rubber. Who thought this up?

    Whoever made this should get the guillotine.

    Rubbery, tastes like nothing. Get the full fat version.
