America’s Best-Selling Cream Cheese Spread Delivers More Real Ingredients, New Packaging

Northfield, Ill. – April 3, 2014 – Today, there are even more reasons to love breakfast.  Fans of Philadelphia Cream Cheese will now find its most popular spreads with even more fruits and vegetables than before.  Knowing American families are paying closer attention to what they eat and increasingly seeking out more recognizable ingredients, the country’s best-selling cream cheese brand has added more of the real fruits and vegetables Philadelphia fans love to its leading sweet and savory spreads, which contain no artificial flavors.  Each of these flavors was renovated to best showcase its real ingredients, mixed with luscious Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread.

For more than 140 years, Philadelphia has been making its products with fresh local milk and real wholesome cream to provide consumers with the high-quality cream cheese they know and love.  Now, its most popular cream cheese spreads including Strawberry, Garden Vegetable, Blueberry, and Chive & Onion feature even more fruit, such as whole, juicy blueberries, vine-ripened strawberries, and more crisp 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,” said Chris Urban, Senior Brand Manager for Philadelphia Cream Cheese.  “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 now have a brand new look and stackable shape that prevents the product from shifting on store shelves, making it easier for consumers to find their favorite varieties without having to turn the labels around.

Found in the refrigerated section, the new spreads will be available nationwide beginning in April 2014 at a suggested retail price of $2.79 for each 8-ounce container.  Learn more about the full line of Philadelphia products at www.creamcheese.com or Facebook.com/LoveMyPhilly.
