Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Putting them to the Test

Name Brand vs. Store Brand - Cream Cheese

 We tried 3 brands of cream cheese this week:  Philadelphia ($1.97 regular price), Kroger ($1.87 regular price) and Great Value ($1.78 regular price).  They were all  1/3 less fat. 

Two of the cream cheese packages look exactly alike.  The other has the Kraft name brand on it.  The Kraft brand opens from the middle; the other two open from the side.

The Great Value brand was the top choice of two people; Kroger was the top choice of one. Philadelphia Cream cheese came in LAST place.  I have been a die hard Philadelphia cream cheese fan for years.  What a shock.  I am not going to be spending extra money on that brand any more!

In case you are wondering what I will do with all this cream cheese, I will probably make some homemade bagels or my favorite Carrot cake found here.
