Cream Cheese Taste Test: Is Philadelphia Really The Best?
The editors at Kitchen Daily decided to find out if Philadelphia cream cheese really is the only good brand out there. The results are in, at Huffpo Food:
When people refer to cream cheese, they are almost always talking about Philadelphia. The Philadelphia brand has over time become synonymous with cream cheese itself. This product has been on the market for over 100 years -- and was first produced in New York despite what the name may suggest -- and so its strong position in consumers' minds is understandable.
But, of course, with this kind of cheese monopoly in play, the editors at Kitchen Daily wanted to know: is this sort of blind devotion really deserved? Do we buy Philadelphia because it truly is the best, or just because it has been around the longest? Can people taste the difference between Philadelphia cream cheese and a generic brand?
