When I was purchasing cream cheese, I wanted low price, ingredients I could understand, and lower calories. This one fit the bill. However, It does have the typical "low calorie" taste. I dunno how to describe it really, just a strange after flavor. Its not really unpleasent, but if you're a big fan of full fat/calories cream cheese, this does take getting used to. however, this isn't an issue exclusive to great value brand, all brands of low calorie have the same flavor issue.
Over-all I enjoy this product, infact, I had it this morning on some great value english muffins. I plan on having another one tomorrow. I've also been losing weight, so thats a plus!
I have this 4/5 because of the taste thing, If you could make it taste like the full fat version, it would be perfect 5/5 from me.
I purchased this by accident as common knowledge has moved beyond the idea of low fat dairy products having benefits. Honestly, I'm awaiting the day there is no longer a market for them. I will add that while it has been some time since I have had light cream cheese, I have used it in the past. This cream cheese is a strange off white color. It has a weird curdy, watery texture and an off flavor. While light will never match the richness and taste of the real deal, Great Value has really created a dud here when compared to Philadelphia, Lucerne, etc.
