Jarlsberg is a mild, semi-soft cow's milk cheese of Norwegian origin. Created by Anders Larsen Bakke, it resembles a Swiss Emmental with distinctive, open and irregular 'eyes'. Many a times Jarlsberg is marketed as a Swiss cheese because of its characteristics, though it tends to be sweeter and stronger than Emmentaler. Beneath the yellow-wax rind of Jarlsberg is a semi-firm yellow interior that is buttery, rich in texture with a mild, nutty flavor. It is an all-purpose cheese, good for cooking as well eating as a snack. Since the cheese melts so well, Jarlsberg tastes delicious on sandwiches, fondues, quiches and on hot dishes.

Norwegian 'Swiss' Cheese
By Harold V Wicks

Jarlsberg has long been one of my favorite sandwich cheeses. This version coupled quality boiled ham on a delicious rye makes a sandwich as about as good as ti can get. It is equally delicious when paired with sliced turkey, lightly salted and enhanced with mayo.

I could not believe how awful this was, I always used Jarlsberg while living in Sweden, where I got addicted to it. This could not even compare, I think this was way past date to be eaten. I was truly disappointed in my order

As expected. Nice cheese, but not exciting
By David Johnson

This is pretty much what we expected from a Jarlsberg Swiss. Nice with bread or crackers.

We didn t like.

By Jim Sinclair

Jarlsberg is a mild Swiss like cheese. When I served it tosome friends it disappeared quickly and the consensus was that it is very tasty. I will certainly purchase it again.
