NOT A FAN~

This morning...for breakfast...I poured myself a cold glass of milk and sliced a slab of pumpkin bread...
opened the pumpkin spice cream cheese...
um...I don't know why but I was surprised by the color...
                                      spread a thin layer...and took a bite...
                                   
I have to tell ya I was disappointed...the cream cheese was a bit sweet and artificial tasting...infact I did not finish this slice, I offered it to the chickens...no complaints from the chicken yard...so there you have it...not a fan of this product...let me know what you think...Goodnight...

I'm sorry about your disappointment in this product. Why do they go and spoil a good thing by adding some artificial junk or chemical.

I've stopped buying prepared food that has a lot of chemical and lately I'm getting more aware of the additives they add to naturally good food like bread, bagels, crackers and so on.

The chickens will have to finish the container for you.

I picked that up at the store and looked at it and wondered what it would taste like. Since I don't really eat that I just put it back. I am glad you tasted it and didn't like it. I will take your word for it. :)

Since moving away from the fast food culture of the UK, I have found that when I do eat something which has been tampered with rather than eating what I make, that I get an upset stomach. This is happening more and more. I suppose that I am becoming desensitized to the artificiality of 'modern' food. As for this product, it is not available here in France. But that bread looks lovely. Did plant some pumpkins this year but didn't do well with them. Looking forward to trying again next year. And God bless those great recyclers of food, the chickens!

I will be on the lookout for a recipe to make my own. Thanks for the honest review.

I saw this pumpkin cream cheese on your Blog and looked for it in the grocery store yesterday but couldn't find it. I guess they don't have it up here in Canada.
I guess I won't bother looking again. Your taste test is good enough for me. I usually love anything pumpkin.
Have a great day Julie.

Now I don't feel disappointed by not finding that in our grocery! The bread looks wonderful and needs to be graced with butter!

Hi Julie!
I tend to make stuff like this from scratch, so I wouldn't be buying it---I think a lot of these products have so much artificial and 'bad stuff' in them, they often don't even taste like what they are supposed to be!
This morning I had a homemade banana smoothie with flaxseed, followed by a hot cup of real cinnamon tea and that great New England staple, a Hermit cookie!!! Yum!
Have a wonderful day, my friend~

Darn. Disappointing. I'm going to the market today and was going to look for it on the shelves; I think I'll skip it and save the calories.

Mmmmmm, pumpkin bread... :)))) No cream cheese for me thanks, just warm me up a slab (end please) and put a dab of butter on, and I'm a happy girl! :)))))

The cream cheese is already artificial, just read the ingredients. So why folks are surprised when fake food taste bad is beyond me. However, that home made pumpkin bread (it looks homemade anyway) is another issue. I'll take one lightly warmed. :)

That's dissapointing! How about mixing your own Cream cheese & canned pumpkin, do you think that would work? The bread looks fantastic!

Sorry about your slice of bread...at least your chickens liked it...
I recently tried Trader Joes cream cheese with pumpkin, it was very yummy and excellent on a cinnamon graham cracker....If you have trader joes near you give that a try....

Nancy is right about the Trader Joes version of the pumpkin cream chesse spread being good, but I have taken to making my own. I take 8 oz of good quality cream cheese softened & put it in a small mixing bowl., Using my hand mixer with the wisk attachment, I beat the cream cheese and 1/4 sugar until smooth. Add about 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) and 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Wisk until everything is well mixed. Place in an air-tight container and refridgerate for up to 10 days. Adjust consistency and spices to your own taste. You can always add more, but you can't take it out once mixed. You can easily half the recipe and adjust the amount of sugar to a sweetness you prefer. Sometime I add a couple of Tablespoons real maple syrup and it makes a wonderful spread for pumpkin pancakes or waffles.
