Organic Valley Unprocessed American Singles Cheese Review and Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed, and the winner is…Carole S.! Carole, contact me within 48 hours to claim your prize!!

So we don’t eat a lot of dairy around here. When we do, I try to do raw milk and cheese when it’s available. And when it’s not, and I want to use cheese in something, I at least go for some organic stuff, with no antibiotics, hormones or pesticides. I have always steered clear of processed cheeses like American because of the fact that it’s really not even “cheese.” Did you know in the United States, it may not be legally sold as “cheese“, and must be labeled as “processed cheese“, cheese “product”, or similar—e.g., “cheese food” (Wikipedia)? It’s just not real cheese. Imagine my surprise when I received a sample of Organic Valley’s unprocessed American singles to try! The only ingredients are: Organic pasteurized cultured milk, salt, organic annatto, microbial enzymes. And of course, they use no antibiotics, hormones or pesticides. Not bad for a pre-packaged food! But would the taste stand up to the idea?

I have to say, I was pleased! The flavor was great, and it was obvious that these were real cheese slices. The texture was a bit dry, but these were excellent melted onto burgers! Deeee-lish! And the added convenience of having these pre-sliced was definitely worth the bit of sacrifice in texture.

Having a BBQ? Keep some of these babies on hand, and you’ll have some very happy guests! Check out Organic Valley’s Facebook page to stay in the loop about all their other great products.

Now on to the good part: Who wants to win some of this cheese? Or any Organic Valley product??? And not just one, but FOUR?! That’s right! One of you lucky readers is going to win FOUR coupons for any Organic Valley product!

I’m making this giveaway easy–just leave a comment here or on my Facebook page telling my what product(s) you will pick if you win! You can check out their product list HERE.

This contest will be open through Wednesday, August 15th at 8pm PST and ONE WINNER will be selected using random.org and announced here on the blog, via Facebook and on Twitter. If you do not email me to claim your prize within 48 hours of the announcement, a new winner will be selected in your place.

Note: I received a free sample of Organic Valley Unprocessed American Singles in exchange for a product review. This exchange in no way influenced my review, these are my unbiased opinions!

    If I won, I would try the American cheese, cream, eggs and butter.

    Thanks for having the giveaway!!

  2. Adrienne Jess says

    Hey! If I won, I would try their eggs, one of their meats, their whole milk, and their cheese.
    Thanks for having this giveaway!

  3. chris Vittori says

    My household loves the cultured butter so we would go for the cultured butter and the new cheese slices. A bison burger with a slice of American cheese sounds great.

  4. Heather says

    I LOVE Organic Valley! I currently have their butter, half and half and milk in my fridge. If I won, I would get their pastured butter, its pretty awesome!

  5. tim mercer says

    I’ve been wanting to try their pasture butter for a while, and I’d like to try some of their cheese as well!

  6. says

    I exclusively drink Organic Valley milk so I would buy that! I also love their CHEEESE! Pepperjack specifically

    I love that they are grass fed- one of the only grass-fed options at my store :)
    happy Friday!

  7. Alicia says

    Oh I would love to try their milk and juices! We use alot of that in our house. Also I will look for their meat and eggs. Those are a favorite as well. :)

  8. Andrea says

    If I won, I would have a hard time choosing but I think I would go with the sliced cheese, milk, meat and butter.

  9. Suzanne C says

    I’d get cream cheese, butter, cottage cheese, and the list goes on with their products I like or would love to try with coupons!! I’d like to try the new slices since I feel the same about “American cheese” (I’ve chastised friends living in “the” dairy state for buying the fake stuff.)

  10. natalie says

    Love to try singles slices of cheese. My daughter eat the strings and loves.the singles milk. If we win I would love the cheese, cream cheese and heavy cream yummy.

  11. Nicole says

    Organic Valley’s raw sharp cheddar is one of my favorite cheeses, so if I won I’d select that, their eggs, some meat slices and a block of cream cheese for baking.

    i would love to win a sample! Cheese has always been my favorite food, in fact I would get blocks & slices of cheese in my stocking at Christmas (we’re from Wisconsin, so its easy to get carried away!). But after going gluten and lactose free a year ago I have really missed out on some great tasting food in effort to keep my tummy happy. I’ve slowly been adding in some dairy, such as greek yogurt & cottage cheese & the occasional grass-fed cheese products. What a fun give-away!! :)

  13. Kelly D says

    I would definitely try the American cheese, as well as the whole milk. My daughter just started drinking Whole milk and I definitely want to stick with organic only. As for the cheese, I love American cheese on a burger or eggs, but hate that it is weird and processed! (-: I am so glad there is finally a “cleaner” version out there.

  14. Ivanna S says

    If I won, I’d try the American cheese (my son loves American cheese, but I’ve stopped buying the processed stuff), the whole milk, and yogurt!
