I’ve mentioned before that one of my favorite things about having this site is that I often get the chance to try new products. Most of the time we enjoy the taste tests. On occasion we have tried a few things that just didn’t really work for us. But, every once in a while, we are introduced to a product that is absolutely amazing. The kind of product that is so good, you just can’t stop eating it!
Well, last week the folks at Almonta sent us some of their cream cheese spreads and I have managed to “taste” 3 containers to the point where they are almost completely empty!
Before I even tasted Almonta Gourmet Cream Cheese Spread, I was already impressed by the fact that it’s an all natural product. The label lets you know that inside that unique keg-style package is a premium-quality cream cheese. All Almonta products are made from 100% natural ingredients. The cream cheese is made with pure milk collected from small farms in the Alpine region.
- Made from milk of cows NOT treated with rBST hormones
- NO preservatives
- NO emulsifiers
- NO artificial colors
- NO artificial flavors
So all of that sounds great but the true test is how it tastes. I can tell you that every single flavor is absolutely amazing! The cream cheese spread is light and fluffy, and has a texture that’s perfect for spreading, dipping, snacking or even just spooned straight from the package!
There are currently three varieties available in the deli at Publix. You’ll notice I said the deli…you’ll find the Almonta spreads with the other fine cheeses in the specialty cheese section at Publix. Look for these varieties –
- Light Chives
- Apricot & Vanilla
I can’t tell you that I have a favorite, because I honestly love them all. Each one works great for different cravings. A warm toasted bagel with the Light Chives spread is the perfect breakfast option. I love the Original as a spread on my tomato sandwich—yum! Now the Apricot and Vanilla spread…it’s just flat out amazing. I love it stuffed into strawberries, as a dip for shortbread cookies or honestly just by the spoonful as a little snack when I am hankering for a sweet treat!
I haven’t had time to play with them in my recipes yet but you know I am going to stuff them into chicken, veggies or something at some point soon!
