I love cream cheese -- whipped, block, whatever, love it all.

For a "treat" I'll get a tub of whipped with chives. Ooohhh, soooo gooood.

I like it any way, but prefer block, unflavored.

My daughter has been talking about a cream cheese made from Greek yogurt, which sounds interesting.

They are for different purposes. Regular cream cheese is usually meant for cooking such as baking. Whipped means stirred and mixed with air so it's easy to spread but not meant for cooking and you're getting less cheese.

Is some President brie made in France? I have the President box* from the brie I bought in December, and it says "crafted in the U.S.A."

*just sitting here on my studio table, waiting for crafty inspiration to strike. Maybe a shrine to cheese, or a tiny boulangerie.

I prefer whipped cream cheese and plain. Rarely salmon flavored.
I don't eat cream cheese (unless it is mixed in as an ingredient in a recipe). I think it tastes gross on its own.

The person who first mentioned the made in France, is located in Europe, according to the thing on the upper right corner. I get President cheese sometimes too, but I think mine is from the Mid West.

Kinda sad that here the grocery stores offer so little choice - it's either Philadelphia or cottage completely disregarding the fact that there is a whole world beyond the two.
Vermont Creamery Quark is sold at some Whole Foods stores, 8 oz. for approximately $6.

For those unfamiliar with quark, Whole Foods has a description of most dairy products here:

If I'm using it in a recipe for cream cheese frosting, or carrot cake etc, then plain block cream cheese works great. However if I am eating it on a bagel I love the plain whipped variety. I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive!
