Everything Bagel

Why has there been so little innovation in flavored cream cheese? I’m sure that some would argue that we don’t need¬†it, but I would find find it a welcome change. Having eaten them for more than 20 years, its always been the same cast of characters: everything, chive or scallion, cinnamon, lox and maybe pumpkin in the fall. Well, here’s my list to get you started.

Harissa

Chimichurri

Chorizo

Romesco

Roasted Fennel

Salted Caramel

Pecan Pie

Pastrami Sandwich

Mocha

Chocolate

Dulce de Leche

Mole
