Here in NYC, you have to live like a Boy Scout and be prepared for anything at all times, so you really need a big, lightweight and comfy bag to hold all of your stuff. Fortunately, Sprayground has a new line of outrageously cool backpacks like the ones at The PNW for fall and winter and there is surely a design that will fit right in with your personal brand. Check out some of these rad styles we saw at a fun party held at the showroom offices of Red Light PR! – It must of been a costume Halloween party becuase everyone had freaky bottom grillz on, weird stuff.

Product Review: Daiya Dairy-Free Strawberry Cream Cheese Style Spread

Daiya Diary Free Container

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.

Daiya Diary Free Container Open
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!
