Pumpkin Cream Cheese
November 6th, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
After a fanfare-filled debut way back in 2010, Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Cream Cheese has become one of our seasonal staples. Year over year, when Pumpkin Season arrives, Pumpkin Cream Cheese holds its place as a steadfast standout you won’t want to miss.
Inside the tub emblazoned with a “wait, isn’t that a bagel?” label is a blend of real pumpkin and an especially rich, tantalizingly tangy cream cheese, with a bit of brown sugar & cinnamon added to ramp up the “are you sure this isn’t pumpkin pie?” quotient. It’s emphatically creamy, so it’s easily spreadable, yet it still retains the rich, dense texture of good cream cheese. And like any cream cheese worthy of the “schmear” moniker, our Pumpkin Cream Cheese is excellent on bagels, English muffins, or toast. It also makes an excellent dip for cookies – it may be gilding the pumpkin to suggest it, but why not try it with Pumpkin Biscotti – or slices of Gala Apples, a sinful spread for pumpkin bread, and an inspired alternative to peanut butter on a sandwich or in celery ribs.
We’re selling each eight ounce tub of Pumpkin Cream Cheese for $2.99, throughout September and October.
Ingredients: PASTEURIZED CULTURED CREAM, PREPARED PUMPKIN, PASTEURIZED CULTURED SKIM MILK, BROWN SUGAR, SUGAR, CINNAMON, SALT, AND STABILIZER (XANTHAN, LOCUST BEAN, AND GUAR GUM).
