Still delicious.

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese:

My kids are a little on the picky side so trying new things always seem to be a challenge. I am always looking for a way to find a healthy alternative for my family so I grabbed some Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese. I made my children's breakfast and they had no idea that it was a little different from the regular cream cheese. It has the same great creamy taste, but it's healthier for us.

Compromises

By 

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese:

Kraft is definitely one of the top brands in my home. For as long as I can remember I have been familiar with the brand and it's products. As far as it's classic - Philadelphia cream cheese and it's many flavor varieties, I have only taken to two or three of them. I was initially introduced to Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese variety by my local grocer who was giving samples of the cream cheese on small bagel pieces. At first I thought I'd skip it because I was already familiar with cream cheese. Then, I noticed it was a reduced at variety so I was a little curious. To tell you the truth, I didn't notice any extreme difference in the taste. The texture wasn't very different either. It had a slightly thicker consistency to it. I ended up buying some and feel pretty good about making a healthier decision for myself and my family. Also, I used this reduced fat variety in a cheese cake recipe and it worked out great as well. No one could tell I swapped it out.

Tastes great!

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese:

Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese is like a clone of the regular, full-fat version! I find this so appealing. There is nothing better than a cream cheese frosting, a cream cheese dip, or just plain cream cheese on a bagel! This is a great alternative and saves so many fat and calories. Like most people, I like to watch my waistline. Thanks to Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese, I can now do this all while still enjoying the foods I love. The texture is the same as the original, which is hard to match when you take out some fat. I just love this product!

Tastes like regular cream cheese, which I still don't like.

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese:

I have a terrible confession to make.  Actually, I have probably accumulated my full share of things to confess but one of the most embarrassing is that I am one of those weird people who don't like cream cheese!  I have told myself that Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese deserves my highest esteem and that everybody else (apparently) is lapping it up with gusto but the fact remains that -- unless it is mixed with something else or employed as an ingredient for the greater good -- **I'm just not a fan**. 

Then along came ***Kraft Philadelphia Reduced Fat Cream Cheese*** and I figured I would give it a try.  After all, my major complaint about the famous white stuff beloved to bagel fans everywhere is that -- aside from a taste that I couldn't quite get used to -- I thought it was actually **TOO** rich.  I envisioned this new version as being something whipped to a light almost frothy creaminess.  Alas, someone has done a wonderful job of producing a cream cheese which is exactly like the original but with a third less fat.

**STATS:**

Two tablespoons constitute a single serving which contains 70 calories with 50 calories from fat.  There are six grams Total Fat, 3.5 grams Saturated Fat, zero Trans Ft, 20 mg. Cholesterol, 140 mg. Sodium, 2 grams each Total Carbs and Sugars, and 2 grams Protein.  Also included are 8% (D.V.) Vitamin A and 4% Calcium.

**MY VIEWPOINT:**

**Cream Cheese Lovers of the World unite!**  You are probably going to like this new advanced dairy "delight" every bit as much as you did the original.  As far as I could see, the two products are almost identical and I'm still not crazy about either of them BUT cautious experimentation has revealed that there is something to be said for  a "*schmear*" of ***Kraft Philadelphia Reduced Fat Cream Cheese*** spread on warm whole grain toast and topped a thin layer of [Smucker's Sugar-Free Jam][1] .  I'll concede that much.

Less Fat, Great Taste

By 

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese:

I am not much of a breakfast person, but I do love bagels, especially with this **Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Soft Cream Cheese**.  If I hadn't seen the package and knew it was less fat than regular cream cheese, I wouldn't have noticed a different.  The texture is thick and creamy and it has a great cream cheese taste.  The cream cheese spreads easily on bagels, and also tastes great on crackers.  The plain has a lot of flavor and works well in desserts too.  This is a great way to make your breakfast bagel a little healthier and not sacrifice taste when you take away the fat.

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese:

I received my coupon and went right down to get the Philadelphia Cream Cheese Tomato and Basil, I baked a refrigerated pizza crust and spread it over the top with some scallions and then had to fight my husband off till it was snack time. I will be getting it again very soon. Thank you

Outrageously fluffy and light.

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese:

Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Soft Cream Cheese is a yummy alternative to the other rich Cream Cheese spreads beside it on the shelf.  Terrific on bagels and croissants.  Don't feel so guilty eating this kind.

I defy you to be able to tell the difference!

By 

from Metro Detroit, MI

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese:

I love cream cheese, I just LOVE it.  I can go through a whole thing of **Philadelphia Cream Cheese** on one bagel if I didn't think it would be very bad for me!  My mom once brought home fat free Philadelphia - and I hated it.  I also tried Whipped Philadelphia a few times, and felt like it was not creamy enough.  So at work when I had the opportunity to try **Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese**, I was worried I wouldn't like it, but gave it a try anyway.

**It taste the same as Regular Philadelphia!**Trust me, I know what regular cream cheese tastes like, and I know that when I eat this 1/3 less fat version I cannot tell the difference.  It's still creamy, it's still yummy, it's still cream cheesy!  There might be a minor difference but it's so minor that it doesn't disappoint me at all.  I still feel like I had a satisfying meal after eating this.

**Nutrition: 1/3 Less Fat, but what about the rest?**I haven't had a regular container of Cream Cheese in the house for awhile, so I can't remember how much fat and calories were in that.  However this 1/3 less fat version seems healthier regardless.  It has 5g of fat, 70 calories, 2g carbs and 2g protein for a 2 tbsp serving.  This really isn't all that bad!  You still shouldn't eat cheese non-stop, but at least you cut out some fat by eating this.

**In the end, you won't know the difference**No one else will know the difference either.  We make a lot of desserts with philly brick cream cheese, and now I will use the 1/3 less fat version.  I know they will never know the difference, and I won't tell them.  If you love regular Philadelphia cream cheese, then why not give this a try.  You'll get the same good taste, with less of the unhealthy stuff.  Enjoy!
