What is Boursin

We’ve all had the Boursin brand in grocery stores, right?  I remember a few years back buy a sample pack at Costco to use during the holiday season.  The trio set didn’t make it through Thanksgiving we loved it so much.  I had to buy another pack for Christmas and New Year.

Boursin is a brand of Gournay cheese. It is a soft creamy cheese available in a variety of flavors, with a flavor and texture somewhat similar to cream cheese. The first Boursin flavor, Garlic and Fine Herbs, was created in 1957 by François Boursin, a cheese maker from Normandy. This info from Wikipedia
