Flavored Cream Cheese

Who doesn’t like cream cheese? But, it is even better if it is flavored cream cheese! Flavored cream cheese can be spread on bagels or toast just like regular cream cheese. You can either purchase it pre-made or make it yourself. If you want to purchase it, your main supermarket will most likely carry some “basic” flavors right next to the plain flavor – Philadelphia Cream Cheese is always a good brand to go with. Gourmet and natural food stores will also carry more exotic flavors.

The main flavors that Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese carries include:
Garden Vegetable
Strawberry
Chives
Chives & Onion
Pineapple
Salmon


Make your own Flavored Cream Cheese

Making your own flavored cream cheese is good because it is alot cheaper than buying it pre-made.If you want to make it yourself, you will need plain cream cheese as well as whatever you are going to flavor it with. Some flavors you might consider that are very tasty include:
olive
roasted red pepper
jalapeno
honey-walnut
walnut-raisin
vegetable
herbed
spinach dip
sun-dried tomatoes

In order to make it, just soften the plain cream cheese, and mix in your flavor of choice until the taste is how you like it. Sometimes it’s also nice to add a little bit of parmesan cheese or salt.
