Kraft Triple Cheddar with a Touch of Philadelphia

Summarize this product in one sentence.


My family just recently tried Kraft Triple Cheddar with a Touch of Philadelphia - what a uniquely different flavor! Kudos to Kraft for adding cream cheese to their already delicious cheddar cheese. Many times I have stirred in cream cheese and or sour cream to our macaroni and cheese for a little something different - this will take a step out of that process!



Kraft Triple Cheddar with Philly - nice taste, melts the same


Of all the cheeses in the world, a nice sharp/extra sharp cheddar is one of my favorites. However, as many people know, cheddar cheese is not one of the best for melting, as it tends to get a bit grainy if overheated and the oils will separate. Therefore, I was interested in trying the new Kraft shredded cheeses with a touch of Philadelphia cream cheese, which are supposed to melt more smoothly and creamily. The Kraft Triple Cheddar is a blend of Vermont white cheddar, sharp cheddar, and mild cheddar, with cream cheese POWDER and cellulose powder added (to prevent caking). From a taste perspective, the cheddar blend was fine, and I didn't detect any tang from the cream cheese. However, from a melting perspective, this blend melted at the same pace as freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese when I did a side-by-side comparison on burgers. Was there a little less oil in the Philly blend? Hard to tell on the burger. Bottom line, I might try this blend again for making cheese sauce, but for just topping burgers, casseroles, potatoes or pizzas, I'll stick to regular shredded cheese (preferably hand grated for freshness).
