So, I recently tried the Kraft Philadelphia whipped cream cheese spread (see product review here if you haven’t yet ) but when I stumbled across the Arla Organic Cream Cheese spread, I had to try it because a)it’s organic and b) it had really really simple and basic ingredients listed – pasteurized organic cream, salt, bacterial culture. Could it get any simpler than that?

Product review: what happened?

I admit I traverse the grocery aisles a lot because I get bored of eating the same things and cooking the same meals for the family but somehow, I end up stuck in a rut. My theory is, if I can find something new or remotely new, than maybe, it’ll help to jazz up the meals a bit (note: I’m a good cook, don’t get me wrong just a boring good cook). So, before today, I had never even seen the Arla brand before, let alone the Arla organic cream cheese. It’s certainly new at my local supermarket (didn’t see it last week, that’s for sure!). That led me to a quick bit of research online and I found out that the Arla products also contain the Tre Stelle line, a name I associate with quality cheese products (very cool!).
Tried the Arla organic cream cheese today spread on a toasted bagel and I instantly fell in love with its smooth creamy texture. It was like someone had made it just for me, fresh. It tasted so creamy, so smooth, not too salty which is great especially if I’m sharing with my kid. The Arla organic cream cheese was really easy to spread onto the bagel (unlike the bar type cream cheese blocks). I’m not going to touch on nutritional facts since I make a point of not doing that for any of the products I review. Like I’ve said before, all in moderation!

Verdict:

Will I buy it again? Yes, for all the reasons mentioned above. Aside from tasting really delicious, I also love and appreciate the time and effort that went into creating an organic cream cheese with basic ingredients that I can spell and feel comfortable putting in my body. I’m fully aware that I’ll still buy other foods that aren’t as healthy or as simple as this Arla organic cream cheese so I feel good knowing that I’ve added something a little more natural into my food repertoire. I understand it’s probably a little pricier and harder to afford but again, all in moderation!

      Hi Steve, thanks so much for the comment and I’m glad you liked my review of the Arla organic cream cheese. It’s amazing how different organic cream cheese tastes. I mean, it still tastes obviously like cream cheese but there is a smoothness to the Arla product that is lighter and just seems simpler. Kudos to Arla! Hope you visit our site again!
