Babybel is a small French-made Edam. Produced by the same firm in France, Bonbel is a semi-soft Saint Paulin. Ball-shaped, coated with wax, both are colourful in appearance and mild in taste. The "mini" versions of each are sold as small wax-coated balls, in mesh bags. Popular as a snack, they also make an excellent addition to cheese trays and gift packs.
