PLYMOUTH, WIS. — Sargento Foods Inc. is expanding its premium Reserve Series product line with new Reserve Series Slices. The natural specialty cheeses come in three varieties.

The Asiago cheese is a softer, slightly sweet and nutty cheese that offers a smooth melt, Sargento said. Each two-slice serving contains 110 calories and 7 grams of protein.

The Aged Gouda offering is a savory, buttery and nutty cheese aged for several months, Sargento said. Each serving contains 100 calories and 6 grams of protein.

The Aged White Cheddar variety offers a rich, sharp flavor, Sargento said. Each slice contains 80 calories and 5 grams of protein.

“We've found that consumers love gourmet cheeses and the convenience of slices, so we’re bringing the best of both worlds together to elevate their everyday meals in a convenient new form,” said John Stanwood, senior marketing manager of Sargento Foods. “With the launch of Reserve Series Slices, adding delicious specialty cheeses to your sandwiches and burgers has never been easier. Anyone can create their favorite dishes and enjoy the gourmet flavor profiles.”

Sargento Reserve Series Slices join off-the-block aged shreds in the company’s Reserve Series portfolio.
