Rancid, sweaty sin. I just love it.

AdvantagesDelicious, Creamy and unusual taste, fairly cheap

DisadvantagesRancid smell, unpleasant colour, Woah! those calories

"...different. That different thing is Boursin (you know: Du pain, Du vin, Du Boursin). It comes in a little 80g box for 90p, which I think it a bit of a bargain. Open the box and slide out a squat cylindrical foil package about the size of the palm of your hand (unless you have very large hands, common sense here people). Uncurl the foil around the edge and pull out the circular piece of foil in the middle, you will almost certainly get some ..." Read review

Boursin Cheese- Tres Frais!

AdvantagesCreamy distinctive garlic taste. It's gorgeous!

DisadvantagesPrice and calories. + my blooming family scoff it before I get to it sometimes!

"...smuggle extra little portions of Boursin to me after my dinner because she knew how much I loved them. What it is to have a friend on the inside! My two kids used to dive on my bag when I came home from being there, they were more excited about the Boursin than about me getting home! Charming! It was first made by Francois Boursin in 1957, so it has just celebrated it's 54th birthday. I wonder if they made it a Birthday Cheese-Cake? He named it ..." Read review

DisadvantagesPrice, high in fat (except Light variety), moreish !

"...day of the week and Boursin is one of the products I almost always have in the fridge - it's so versatileand can be eaten hot or cold at any time of the day - it's pure heaven. (".) What is Boursin ? (".) Boursin is a soft cheese like no other; I can't stand Philadelphia for example but this is something different.

"...to make a chicken and Boursin recipe which is absolutely divine, have I ever lied to you? Ooh you are excited aren’t you! Now you must have heard the of the advert “Du pain, du vin et du Boirsin (bread, wine and Boursin for you non French speakers). It was one of the most famous and successful French adverts in history. Packaged in a delightful aluminium cover, Boursin is recognised as one of the best French cheeses, by me anyway. The ..." Read review

More interesting than Cheddar! Review with images

AdvantagesTaste, texture, option of lower fat, easy to spread

DisadvantagesPackaging could be clearer.

"There is almost always Boursin in our fridge, mainly because just as I am addicted to Smoked Cheese, my other half is addicted to the Garlic variety of Boursin. Boursin is a French soft cheese with added herbs to make it more interesting. There are 4 varieties; full fat Garlic, full fat Pepper, and reduced fat versions of them both. The Garlic Boursin is delicious, but not for those who dislike garlic! It has a strong, but not too over powering, ..." Read review

A Fresh and Light Soft Cheese from France

AdvantagesCreamy Rich,sweet flavour Nice table cheese

DisadvantagesVery Few

"Boursin soft cheese really is one of the great French cheeses.It is best described as a modern,creamery,fresh cheese of cylindrical shape and it comes without a rind. It was initially introduced in 1957 in the Normandy region by one Monsier Boursin,hence its name. This delicate soft cheese has a distinctive fresh and light taste with a rich,sweet,flavour and there is a rather subtle hint of acidity about it. It is normally flavoured with the likes ..."
