Kraft Philadelphia Extra Light

AdvantagesJust as good as the original and much healthier

DisadvantagesExpensive compared to competitors

"Kraft Philadelphia - A Little Taste of Heaven ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Why I buy Philadelphia ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am a great fan of all things cheese, from soft cheeses to hard. I have always loved Philadelphia, whether it be the normal version, light or even extra light, I find no difference in quality between them. As I am currently on a diet the extra light version is perfect for me. The same great taste but better for you! And those adverts, ..." Read review

Dollop of White, Cheesey Vileness, anyone? Review with images

AdvantagesCan help you on a diet, or if you are health conscious

DisadvantagesNowhere near as tasty as the regular version

"...god awful rubber cheese squares…urgh!). Kraft are the second largest food and drink company in the world! Based in America, they officially started business in 1903. As far as the cheese itself goes, Philadelphia is available in other varieties, such as garlic and herbs, chives, as well as light and it's original full fat. The reason is it called 'Philadephia' is because back in 1880 when cream cheeses were first being made, it was named 'Philadelphia' ..." Read review

Angelic!

Advantagesgreat taste, heathy, good for snacks

Disadvantagesa bit pricey compared to other spreads

"...fat, salt and saturates content. The Kraft logo (those good ole people also behind another favourite -dairylea) can be found at the top of the box. The ingrediants can be found on the bottom of the tub. The smell ~~~~~~~~ Unlike with other cheese speads, what I like about Philadelphia is that it is not over powering at all . It has a very plesent, creamy smell to it, it does smell richer than it is -it has an aroma which is addictive to ..." Read review

Disadvantagesa bit pricey in the long run

"...week that I first purchased Kraft Philadelphia Extra Light cheese spread, so what better opportunity will I have than to share my experience of this product with you now?! '''Why Did I Purchase?''' -------------------------------- There are two main reasons why I initially purchased the cheese. The first of which is that I have recently become quite addicted to the Kraft Splendips products (little snack pots with various dips, including a ..." Read review

Philadelphia Extra Light - tingle your tastebuds

AdvantagesLow fat and calories. great taste and versatile

DisadvantagesNone to mind

"==Kraft Philadelphia Extra Light Spread== ===Spread it all over=== I don't know about anyone else, but I am a big lover of all things that spread on toast - cheese spread, marmite, pate, jam, lemon curd and even the odd pot of Nutella graces the cupboards of my kitchen. These fantastic spreads are my sin, my fall-down and my weakness, all rolled into one. I don't believe in a thin covering with the knife - I want to sink my mouth into ..." Read review

Phill your boots it's extra light

AdvantagesGreat for people watching their weight and very versatile

DisadvantagesProbably not for people who are lovers of the full fat variet

"...tub and then in 1985, Kraft ( the owners of the cheese) brought in a low fat version and in 2001 this extra light version came into being - it was then 'improved' in 2006. The Cheese. Philadelphia Extra Light smooth, mild, white cream cheese that is made from pasteurized milkfat. It differs from soft cheese like Brie in the fact that it is not matured and has to be eaten fresh. Obviously this cheese is 'extra low fat' so is a lot ..." Read review

kraft philadelphia xtra light

AdvantagesLow Fat

DisadvantagesNegligible fiber content.

"...I am really suprised the Kraft company make a time line story about this. I am sure most people are familiar with the kraft Philadelphia Television advert from a few years ago which I will not bother talking about in too great detail as it showed a beautiful female sitting down on a Sun Bed ouside on a warm summer's day looking to enjoy herself by eating the original version of Philadelphia spread. So here I am now reviewing kraft's extra ..." Read review

Want some ?

Advantagestaste and light

Disadvantageshave to eat less if your dieting

"Kraft Philadelphia Extra Light So your looking for a tasty snack, well look no further. This is the best cream cheese product I have come across and it has a lot less calories than the original Philadelphia, which is quite high in calorie intake and that's a dangerous thing if your dieting and love the taste. The Kraft Philadelphia Extra Light however, is a nice treat without the guilt. Philadelphia cream cheese has 8.2 grams of fat and 86 Calories ..." Read review

Extra Light Philly is a Life-Saver

AdvantagesWon't clog up your arteries as fast as the full fat one will

DisadvantagesDoesn't taste as nice

"Cream Cheese. Even saying the name out loud makes you look fatter. Oh the joy of spreading a good dollop of rich, thick, creamy Philly on a Ritz cracker and popping the whole thing in your mouth at once, licking your lips to pick up any errant cracker crumbs that might have spilled over as you took that first crunch! But we are always being told to watch our saturated fat and salt intake these days and I am no longer the slip of a girl I once ..." Read review

Kraft Philadelphia extra light

Advantagesall the creamy taste without the calories

Disadvantagesnone

"Trying to be health concious I thought I'd give this product a try not really expecting it to be as good as other products being sold. How wrong I was, I was indeed more than surprised at how tasty it was, in fact even my husband and the chidren and grandchildren were eating it at every opportunity. No matter in which way it was served, whether on toast, sandwiches, breadsticks, even with tomato toasted, it just seemed to go with any type of bread ..." Read review

"My Kids love Kraft Philadelphia Extra Light, When we first tried it i was expecting it not to taste as nice as the full fat version, but we all think it is nicer it still tastes creamy and smooth. You can use it in a variety of ways as a spread or dip someone told me they had even used it as a cheat cheese sauce although i have to admit i havent tried it myself but may one day. We love it on crackers best of all, it is also nice eaten with carrot ..." Read review
