Mini Babybel

It’s really no surprise you want to learn more about meā€¦ I am a deliciously big deal in a perfectly petite red package! But enough about meā€¦ or should I say, how about a little more about me? I knew you’d agree! Here is a timeline of my fascinating life.

  • In my homeland, Vive Le France!, Original Babybel cheese, is born unto this world a perfect cheese, destined to be adored by cheese lovers everywhere.
  • Our secret is out for all to enjoy. The first official Babybel® ad campaign breaks onto the Paris suburban trains and regional press. France falls even more in love with cheese. Is that possible? In this case, oui.
  • Mini Babybel®, me, me, me, me, me is launched! I create a brand new category: the first-ever mini cheeses! #bigdeal
  • I, Mini Babybel, bravely sail across the ocean blue. The journey is arduous but my tenderness is untouchedā€¦ I am officially launched in the USA under The Laughing Cow umbrella. America cheers!
  • I am enjoyed in 7 Mini Babybel® varieties and ā€” wait for it ā€” sell over 400 million mini cheeses a year! So much delicious cheese. So little time!
