Snack Review: Philadelphia Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese Spread

Details: Philadelphia cream cheese brand is owned by Kraft Heinz, whose official site is

Score: 6/10

Smoked salmon in and of itself is an acquired taste. In New York City at least, smoked salmon (or lox, which is different, but not that different) is often eaten with bagels and cream cheese. This flavor was clearly designed to emulate that taste.

Sadly, it doesn’t do a great job of that. If you a needing that smoked salmon with cream cheese taste, then you could survive on this. But this isn’t great and not a satisfactory substitute for actual lox and bagels.

Overall, I’d just skip this and get the real thing. On the other hand, this is a far cheaper substitute that smoked salmon or lox. The real thing is very expensive in comparison.
