Ryvita Fruit Crunch Crackers, Danish Graddost Havarti Cheese and Tine Sno frisk (Snofrisk)

One of our favorite family snacks is Ryvita Fruit Crispbread with Danish Graddost Havarti cheese.

The creamy, tang of the Havarti is complemented so well by the light sweetness of the fruit crispbread. Not only is the crispbread studded with raisins but it also boasts whole pumpkin and sunflower seeds. I'm talking visible whole seeds. This is actually a pretty and tasty cracker!
"When you crave a sweet but nutritious snack, try RYVITA Fruit & Seed Crunch. Each slice provides you with 2g of fiber and combines whole grain rye with pumpkin and sunflower seeds, oats, real fruit and just a touch of honey.
Ingredients: Whole grain rye flour, currants (14%), whole grain wheat flour, brown sugar, pumpkin seeds (5%), sunflower seeds (5%), whole grain oat flakes, whole grain kibbled rye, honey."
Another yummy cheese to spread on this cracker is Tine (Tee-neh) Sno Frisk. This spreadable goat milk (80%) and cow's cream (20%), salt and culture. I have also used this cheese in a plain tomato sauce and it turns into a dreamy delicious complex

Snøfrisk was launched at the Olympic Games at Lillehammer in 1994. It is a mild goat's cheese with a fresh but tangy taste.
Snøfrisk is a white, unripened creamcheese which is easy to spread. The cheese is made from 80% goat's milk and 20% cow's cream, with only 1.5% salt added. Snøfrisk fresh spreadable cheese
Despite its exotic simplicity, Snøfrisk can be used for many different purposes. Spread the cream cheese directly onto your sandwich, or blend it with herbs and garlic. Spread it on salty titbits such as cured meats or slices of smoked salmon, roll them up and fasten to a small cracker to make delicious appetizers. Add it to a freshly-made dip or dressing.

Because Snøfrisk can be heated it is perfect for stews or sauces as a lighter alternative to cream, sour cream or crème fraîche.

For dessert dishes Snøfrisk is perfect for using in creamy desserts, cheesecakes or pastries or together with fruit and berries in a pannacotta, for example. Spices and flavourings such as cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom are perfect combinations with Snøfrisk.
Lefse rolls with Snøfrisk cream cheese, dill, smoked salmon and lettuce is an excellent appetizer. Easy and fast to make,with the taste you just got to love.

Lefse is a traditional soft Norwegian flatbread made out of potato, milk, flour, and cooked on a griddle. It generally resembles a tortilla.
