Okay, so along with the Nutiva organic coconut manna (coconut spread) that I raved about in an earlier post ( click here! if you haven’t read it yet), I also decided to try the Kraft Philadelphia regular whipped plain cream cheese as another breakfast option. Okay, I didn’t make that decision, the husband did but he’s not writing the blog now, is he? So, I get the credit. Well, at least, I get the credit of writing the review.
The husband claims he decided to get the Kraft Philadelphia regular whipped plain cream cheese because he figures it’s whipped so it’s fluffier which means he’ll spread less on his piece of bread which means he’ll eat less of it and thus be healthier. Now, in our household, we’re not restrictive in what we eat. We believe moderation is key so I don’t generally comment on how healthy or nutritious a certain food item is. My kid has eaten cream cheese before so why not try the whipped version and see how it is.
Product review: What happened?
So, the Kraft Philadelphia regular whipped plain cream cheese really does seem lighter and fluffier than regular cream cheese. For some reason, it also has more of a buttery feel and taste to it while still providing the cream cheese flavour which makes me instantly like it. Since then, I’ve tried it on cheese bread, regular brown toast, and on a bagel and they’ve all tasted really good.
The husband feels like it’s easier to eat because of all the extra air bubbles in it so it’s easier to spread (he said it, not me. Obviously, he’s been spending too much time with the under 6 years crowd). He doesn’t think it’s as rich and dense, which I agree with.
For whatever reason, my kid tried it once and wasn’t keen on it. Won’t read too much into it since all kids go through phases of likes/not likes when it comes to food. Usually, if there’s a solid reason, she’s quite specific and will let me know. This time, all she said was, “I like it but I don’t want to eat it”. That could be because she’s currently into ‘combo breakfasts’ which consist of a bowl of cereal (her choice) paired with a warmed up pita and honey, milk, and fruit on the side.
Will I buy/eat this again?? Well…we just bought our second container so I think that answers THAT question.
