Is the thick layer on "babybel" cheese really wax?

I always eat cheese from that brand and also eat the red stuff outside it. but then my friend told me I was eating wax...(?)

No, it is not meant to be eaten. It's wax. Some cheeses have hard outer rinds like parmesan that you can toss into soup stocks for flavor, while others have wax that is not meant to be eaten.

Pretty sure eating the red wrapping around the cheese was not the best idea

Yes the red "stuff" on the outside is wax, is not particularly bad for you, but i suggest you do not eat it any more.

Don't eat it anymore, eat another piece of cheese if you are still hungry.
