We’ve started a new Food Channel Finds podcast, focusing on some of the interesting and new food items or locations we find in our travels. It’s our goal to bring these products to your attention so you can join us in the fun of experimenting and being the first on your block to know what’s new! In this episode, our team of Kay Logsdon, Food Channel editor in chief, Locke Hilderbrand, our chief insights officer, and Stacy Nipstad, cultural curator, do a little creating in the kitchen using product from Philadelphia Cream Cheese.
We sampled the Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread, first in peach, and then in olive. The peach is made with real peaches, and it tastes like it–no artificial flavor even when paired with the real thing. Their snack suggestion is to spread the cream cheese spread on a banana and add a little cinnamon, but we took it a little further and spread it on watermelon! Yep, we made a watermelon pizza topped with the peach cream cheese spread mixed with a little whipped topping and powdered sugar, then layered that with peaches and blueberries and topped it with some shaved white chocolate. Try to eat just one slice!
Next we used the olive spread, made with Spanish olives and red bell pepper. Again, it was true to flavor and delicious with just a touch of tang. Spread it on a pita and add feta, or do what we did and make bruschetta! We simply spread slices of a baguette with the cream cheese spread and then topped it with fresh tomatoes and a few spices, then baked it. Let’s just stay it’s likely to appear as an appetizer for one of our events again.
