Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spreads Load Up on Fruits and Veggies
By Grocery Headquarters Staff
Knowing American families are paying closer attention to what they eat and increasingly seeking out more recognizable ingredients, the officials behind Philadelphia Cream Cheese brand has added more real fruits and vegetables to its sweet and savory spreads, which contain no artificial flavors. Each of these flavors was renovated to best showcase its real ingredients, mixed with Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread. The brand's cream cheese spreads, including Strawberry, Garden Vegetable, Blueberry and Chive & Onion, feature more fruit, such as blueberries and vine-ripened strawberries, and vegetables, such as diced carrots, red peppers and onions. “It’s an exciting time in our history as we’re giving our fans yet another great reason to choose Philadelphia every time they reach for a bagel: more fruits and vegetables,” says Chris Urban, senior brand manager for the brand. “And of course we’re also proud that 22 of our leading cream cheese spreads have no artificial flavors.” In addition to the product enhancements, all Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread packages have a new look and stackable shape that prevents the product from shifting on store shelves. The new spreads will be available nationwide beginning this month at a suggested retail price of $2.79 for each 8-ounce container.
