From the manufacturer: If you’ve got the munchies and want a nutritious snack, Allégro 4% cheese is the healthy solution. With only 4% fat, one 30 g cube provides 20% of the recommended daily calcium intake and 11 g of protein. Keeps you satisfied until the next meal!
This review page is for the White or Yellow variety as the only difference between them is food colouring. Allegro 4% is also available in Herbs & Spices and Jalapeño flavours.

Don't buy this as often as the Herbs & Spices Allegro....but it's very good on Melba toast with a little jam.

I enjoy this warmed in the microwave, make it more like fresh cheese curd. Yummy!

Sadly this cheese is not available in the U.S. (as of this writing), but Michelle brought several varieties of the Allegro with her when she was here.  It is a nicely done low-fat cheese, strict legal, and would be a great healthy choice to continue using even on maintenance.

This a five star from me, and it works good on homemade pizza now that i am on maint. Cheese was always a weakness of mine and i am glad i do not have to keep Allegro on the forbidden list.

I love this cheese on flatbread for a strict mini pizza

This product has been a lifesaver for me!  It's great as is and melts really well too.

I really love this.  My husband has been eating this for years and so I was aware of it and eating it before this diet.  This definitely does the trick for me on this diet.  I use it once a week on my pita pizza and I feel like i'm cheating!  Allowance is a really good amount, esp if you grate it!!  This will be my main cheese after the diet too.

Very, very good.  Not attending the clinic at present but I buy it and eat every day.

Well I must admit I was pretty excited when I ran across Allegro 4% Mozzarella last night in the grocery store (Superstore in Calgary), well today I saved up my breads and used a whole Pita Gourmet Pita and made a pizza........I can’t believe how disgusting this cheese is!! Surely I can’t be eating the same cheese that all of you are raving about? I wouldn’t say it tasted any different than the fat free slices, just a block of plastic cheese instead.

I have been eating this stuff for over ten years.  I would never cook with it but it's great on crackers.

I agree with whoever said it was "plastic-y" ... not the worst stuff out there, but not fabulous if you're a real cheese lover (like me).  
The plain variety had little flavour.
I give it a 3 out of 5 because it IS legal and IMHO still MUCH better than eating processed "cheesefood" slices.

Note:  I much prefer the St. Albert L'Elan  4% which comes in a brick.  

We have family near the factory in St. Albert & am lucky enough to have my hubby bring it home for me every month! : )
