The Latest in Chocolate: Chocolate Cream Cheese
This one recently hit Safeway's dairy shelves: Kraft Philadelphia Indulgence, dark chocolate cream cheese made with real Belgium chocolate. Having just spooned the last of it, I can assure you it's yummy - sweet, rich, chocolaty, and similar to Nutella. Between the two, though, I'd stick with Nutella. It's lighter and works better as a spread.
A spoonful of Indulgence makes for a tasty mini-dessert. It's creamy but not cream-cheesy, and so chocolaty it will drown out the taste of whatever you eat it with. This isn't a complaint, coming from me. I just wish to properly inform those of you who aren't as addicted to cocoa as I am.
Healthy it's not, at 20% saturated fat and only 2% calcium. Of course, that's not why I was anxious to try, and keep trying this one. And I still highly recommend it for the "Yum" factor alone.
I give Kraft Philadelphia Chocolate Cream Cheese Spread an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. Go Indulge (say, on a cracker, bread, or plain bagel). Let me know what you think.
