    Has anyone else used this? I was super skeptical at first but I'm kind of impressed, I use it in stead of mayo for stuff like Tuna/Pasta salads. Also because of certain dietary restrictions I can't have cheese and it works pretty well as a faux mac and cheese "cheese". Anyone else try it and have any other ideas?

    Eww! Processed food. Same company that makes Velveeta.
    Never put it in your shopping cart.
    If found in a home, add it only to a trash can.

    So what is it? A cream cheese based cream? Or an oil/dairy based cream with flavors added?

    BINGO!!!! You've asked the multi-million dollar question!

    "It" is certainly nothing which is naturally occurring.

    "It" is "unnatural" or "supernatural".

    Spooky in either case.

    I saw this at the store a few weeks ago and thought to myself.. what the heck do you cook with cream cheese, other than cheese cake? I can't imagine using this stuff for actual dishes.

    Also, I think it's funny/strange that the Kraft website doesn't list the ingredients. According to some other site, this stuff is made of "whey protein concentrate, cheese culture, tapioca starch, various gums, and even sugar." icon_neutral.gif

    If you want something to use instead of mayo, try Greek Yogurt. It has yet to fail me!

    It's pretty much just cream cheese I think, and like I said I can't really have a lot of dairy products (cream cheese however is pretty safe)
