Have you ever had the pleasure of enjoying Boursin cheese? A cheese lover myself, I’ve always been a huge fan. Boursin is a super creamy, flavorful brand of Gournay cheese from Normandy, France that comes in a variety of flavors – I can’t get enough of their garlic and fine herbs flavor. Boursin cheese is easy to spread (almost like cream cheese, but even smoother) and is perfect alongside some crusty bread and wine.

Stock up on your favorite flavors of Boursin cheese, break out the Shamrock Shakes and your leprechaun hat and get ready to devour these savory treats this St. Paddy’s Day.
