For over 150 years, Philadelphia has been the leading brand of cream cheese. For the first time in forever, they released their brand new plant-based cream cheese spread.

So many people, whether it be by choice or for medical reasons, have been looking to add in more plant-based foods and drinks into their diets; this is the perfect item for all of those cream cheese lovers out there who also just so happen to be Vegan as well!

Let’s take a look at the brand new plant-based cream cheese spread from Philadelphia!

Before Philadelphia entered the market of plant-based cream cheeses, so many different studies were done on other similar products; what that found was that less than half of the people that tried such a product became a repeat customer. When it comes to Philly’s try at this particular product, they saw their repeat purchases nearly double.

Many people may wonder if a plant-based cream cheese spread will still taste or feel similar to the real stuff. Here’s what Philadelphia promises to deliver on:

"“Philly fills that gap by delivering on the taste, texture, and ingredients that plant-based cream cheese lovers are craving.”"

Initially, the company just released a plain flavor. Once that completely took over the market was was rated ‘exceeds expectations’ on many people’s minds, they just recently decided to add Strawberry and Chive & Onion into their repertoire as well!

Philly’s plant-based cream cheese spread is a part of an effort on Heinz’s part in order to “bring plant-based offerings to the masses”. Personally, even though I’m not Vegan, I think that this is nothing short of a great idea!

Here are some reviews of their product from online Target Shoppers:

  • One person stated that even though the texture is just a bit harder than normal cream cheese, that once’s it’s on a warm bagel and melting, you simply can’t tell the difference
  • Another person stated that they’re allergic to so much and are happy that they can finally eat cream cheese again, given that it’s so similar to the real stuff
  • One final person stated that it’s simply the best plant-based cream cheese that they’ve ever had and that it tastes and feels right on a bagel with some delicious smoked salmon

These delicious new Vegan alternatives are available at all of your local grocery stores and other retailers and are currently going for $5.69 for an 8-oz. tub over at Target!
