Do you like cream cheese? I sure do. And if it’s got some fruit in it, all the better. I first heard about Daiya Dairy Free Cream Cheese Spreads at last Summer’s Food Fete and I became an instant fan!

After a bit of searching, I was recently able to locate Daiya‘s Strawberry Cream Cheese Style Spread at Whole Foods on 14th Street and have been enjoying it on my morning toast.

It Looks Pretty Good, Right?

This spread has an authentic, cream cheese tanginess with a not-too-sweet flavor of real strawberries mixed in. The texture is very smooth and creamy, and it spreads easily without tearing the bread — which can sometimes be an issue with regular cream cheese. Daiya also makes this spread in Plain and Chive and Onion flavors, which would be great for use in making savory party snacks!

Daiya Spread on Toasted English Muffin

And while it tastes great on a toasted bagel or English Muffin, it can be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for Cream Cheese, so feel free to get creative!

Hot on the heels of the Summer Fancy Food Show, which invaded Javits Center for three days straight, our favorite seasonal gourmet food showcase, Food Fete, took place just a few blocks east of the convention center, celebrating the largest showing of food and beverage products in its nine-year history! Here are  some of our favorite products from the show!

Crispy Green Freeze Dried Fruit

Crispy Green makes packaged freeze dried fresh fruit. We sampled the Freeze Dried Tangerines and were delightfully surprised to discover that this snack looks just like freshly peeled tangerine segments, except they are crunchy like chips, while maintaining the tangy taste of the fruit! Very fun!

Amy's Kitchen Brownies and Ice Cream

You might be familiar with Amy’s Kitchen frozen entrees, but did you know that this company makes a comprehensive line of foods including delicious gluten-free brownies and cookies, and coconut water based frozen dessert? I had no idea! Amy’s served up a tiny brownie sundae which was very yummy.

Snake River Farms Kobe Beef Sliders

Snake River Farms Kobe Beef Sliders were a huge hit with the meat lovers!

Daiya Dairy Free Cream Chees

Daiya Dairy Free Cream Cheese style spreads come in Plain, Strawberry, and Chive & Onion flavors. The tiny cheese cakes they presented at Food Fete were especially delicious, and the Strawberry flavored spread (made with real strawberries) is to die for.
