Finished. Terrible news. The Lana brand cream cheese and the 2% cottage cheese are amazing. Imagine having to eat Philadelphia cream cheese? Impossible. Are Lana brand products available elsewhere?
End of an era. Sad, but it's kind of nice they don't want to sell the business and risk someone else tarnishing the name.
So it seems they still want to sell their wholesale goods and continue catering. Which is good.
I hope they manage to get Daiter's wholesale products into the right stores.
Their (low-fat) cheese blintzes and their potato varenikes are the best in the city. Hope they continue to make and wholesale them.
Great cottage cheese as others have mentioned. Never a fan of Daiter's cream cheese (too thin).
Agreed re: Philly Cream cheese. It is horrible.
That being said, Western Cream Cheese is pretty good. Available at my Superstore (and I'm guessing Loblaws in T.O.)
Really grim news. I went to school with one of the Daiter descendants and always felt a special connection with them. But I guess they are all happy enough.
