Who makes the best Veggie Cream Cheese?

alkapal Dec 10, 2009 05:32 AM

I want to buy veggie cream cheese without the guar gum and its cousins, with nice crunchy veggies. I want full fat, and not low-fat.

Dunkin Donuts *used* to have a good one, but not anymore (at least not around here). Any ideas?

    Are you looking for a dairy cream cheese with veggies in it or a vegan non-dairy "cream cheese"? Must be my cold medication, but I am uncertain!

      Cold medication notwithstanding ha, ha, make your own alkapal, full fat cream cheese at room temp, small dice celery, carrots, red and green peppers. Takes 10 minutes, no gums allowed. Keeps for at least a week.

        If you have a good bagel bakery nearby they'll probably be your best source.

          Yep, I'd try the Brooklyn Bagel Bakery or the Chesapeake Bagel Bakery (if you're in Arlington). Manhattan Bagel, I believe, only has light veggie. Happy hunting!
