Wrapped up in foil and packed in that round cardboard box, wedges of Laughing Cow cheese feel like such a dainty little snack. As I kid, I felt like such an adult opening up a wedge and spreading it over a plate of crackers like they do in the commercials. But in case you missed it (I sure did!), there isn't just one kind anymore. In fact, there are a whole slew of flavors — more than there are days of the week!

On a mission to save your snack break, I sampled them all. So the next time you're craving a creamy, cheesy snack with a red cow on the label, you'll know where to turn.

If you like the classics ... Creamy Original Swiss

This is the creamy cheese wedge I know and love. It's not extra-sharp like that deli Swiss cheese with the holes in it. Instead, it's rich with just a little nuttiness. The most classic Laughing Cow cheese wedge deserves a handful of classic Ritz crackers.

If you want to eat more veggies ... Creamy Swiss Garlic & Herb

Pass the celery and carrot sticks — this wedge kind of tastes like veggie dip, and I mean that in a good way. It's meant to be spread (not dunked), but it's a cheese that makes raw veggies taste a whole lot better.

If you want to eat an apple a day ... Creamy White Cheddar

I followed the image on the box of this variety and tried it with apple slices, and it was most definitely a success. Like peanut butter, it's a creamy contrast to the apple slices, but it's saltier and just feels a little more sophisticated.

If you like a bit of a kick ... Creamy Spicy Pepper Jack

This tastes like the pepper Jack cheese you buy from the deli counter, but in wedge form. I was confused about what to do with this one besides spread it on a turkey sandwich so I just spread it on crackers, but I think it would be even better spread on pretzels.

If you're making an egg sandwich ... Creamy Queso Fresco Chipotle

I wanted a lot more smoky chipotle flavor from this cheese. I also didn't get much in the way of queso fresco, although that's probably because it's such a mild cheese to begin with. That said, I think this one's a little boring on its own, but would work well swiped on a slice of bread before building avocado toast or an egg sandwich.

If you're dreaming of a Mediterranean vacation ... Creamy Mozzarella, Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil

This one tastes exotic (thank you, sun-dried tomatoes!). Out of the flavored Laughing Cow cheeses, this wedge felt the most natural. Swipe it on crostini while you sip a glass of Prosecco — that's allowed during snack hour, right?

If you like onion dip ... Creamy Swiss French Onion

I wanted this one to remind me of the melty cheese on top of French onion soup. Instead, it reminded me of onion dip that's made from a package. So if that's your jam, you'll like this. I don't think ruffled potato chips would be an out-of-place pairing here.

If you've got some jam on hand ... Creamy Asiago

The newest flavor, I unfortunately felt that Creamy Asiago was trying too hard to fit in with the rest. Asiago has a nice sharp flavor, which fell a little flat here, and I ended up feeling like this one wasn't all that different from the Original Swiss. But I tried to spice it up by spreading it on Triscuits with a little fig jam, and it was a snacking success. Jam saves all.
