Faux, Quasi, Pseudo Cheesecake!

Strawberry Cream Cheese

I remember back when I was in Hong Kong (around the new millennium), my mother would buy the Philadelphia (gosh it’s so hard to master the spelling!) Cream Cheese Strawberry Spread, and every time I went to her place I would liberally lather it on my toast and really, get ‘a little taste of heaven‘ (no I’m not their new promotion manager!). Of course, with the immigration to Australia, this is one of the foods I was forced to forever relinquish, hidden deep in the fathomless pits of my memory as a most luscious nosh. Or so I thought. Thankfully, Australians are starting to recognise the notion of ‘good taste‘, and around a year ago I was delighted to see this item stocked on the supermarket shelves. Nearly a decade behind HK’s discovery of this beauty (oh noes, I’m inadvertently developing an Australian vocabulary! 😯 ). For those with less of a sweet tooth, they have savoury flavours too, but that’s like eating savoury cheesecake. (eew, I say!)

So yes, if you feel the craving to eat cheesecake for breakfast but not in the mood to start your day off guiltily, I suggest you go buy this now. Toast some bread to its most crunchy state possible. Then slather this sublime gloop on. Be generous now, it’s 80% less fat than butter! That’s better…
