Masa Kak Mon kekecik dulu, tak tau pun wujudnya benda yang bernama cheese ni. The closest I got to dairy products was susu cap junjung (gambar atas). Masa kat sekolah rendah, ada gomen bagi bantuan makanan, termasuklah dapat susu kotak from time to time (apart from daily free lunch and sometimes dapat free berus gigi dengan ubat gigi). Suka sangat. Kadang-kadang dapat yang kotak besar tu (1 liter). I have always like plain white milk. I can take chocolate and coffee flavour as well but my preference was and still is plain white milk. I can't drink strawberry flavour. If not, kejap aje cerry-berry okay. Strange kan. I can eat strawberries without the same reaction tho.
My children love cheese. Maybe as much as I love plain white milk. Cheese slice. Cheese stick. Cheese wedges. These are not cheap (by my standard). Anak-anak suka, layan je lah. It's a good source of calcium anyway. Try shoving into their mount calcium tablets, buleh? I bet tak berjaya. Cheese is your solution to giving doses of calcium to your children, in tender loving ways :D Tak payah main kejar-kejar pastu kepit anak kat kaki pasal nak kasi makan vitamins and whatnots.
My children especially love Kraft Cheese Wedges. Tebby once bought that expensive cheese hak bulat tu. The one that you need to manually slice. It has a red skin which we can peel off. Kakak, Iman, Adam, makan sikit je. They don't like the taste. In a way, it was a good thing. Jimatss heh heh. This Kraft Cheese Wedges, it has 8 wedges in a box. Harga dalam RM7-RM9 la lebih kurang.
But semalam, I found an alternative to Kraft. Ada jualan kat Menara and this thing seolah-olah melambai-lambai mintak dibeli (ahhhh.. Kak Mon.. what's new *eyes roll*). I bought not one, but two. Nasib baik, SEDAPPPP!!! It is softer that Kraft wedges and stiffer than cream cheese. You can hold it in your hands but not for long. Ngapp terus. Lebih lemak berkrimmm.. I loike. It also has 8 wedges (Saudia branded it as triangles, not wedges), sold at RM5 per box. Murah kan.
I got a problem tho. Adam, is allergic to cow's milk (lactose intolerant). He can consume tapi tak boleh banyak-banyak. Disebabkan triangle ni sedap, he almost had 4 of them last night alone! Sampai kena umpan dengan chocolate cake baru dia stop. Bacakan kisah kami berkejar ke A&E KPJ Kajang sebab allergic lactose di sini.
Having ngapp-ed a triangle semalam, think am gonna buy some more today. Frens, if you are in Menara and terliur with this entry, should you go and buy some, please leave a box or two for me ya..
