Goldy’s Spiced Pumpkin Cheese Spread

Light, puffy, fluffy and sweet.

The sweetness was a personal disappointment. All of Goldy’s other cheeses are savory, and their Pumpkin Cheese hangs out in the fridge with the Gorgonzolas and Manchegos, like they were all part of the same gang. This made me think “Wow! A salty pumpkin cheese!” Alas, it’s like a Crip got mixed up with the Bloods. Confusing.

Once I got over my missed expectations however, I recognized that for a sweet cream cheese, this one is really pretty yummy. It’s whipped and fluffy, unlike Safeway’s delicious Lucerne Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese which we reviewed earlier this year. It’s also more expensive and more fattening per ounce, but it holds its own. 

Goldy’s Spiced Pumpkin Cheese Spread would be a nice accompaniment to breakfast on Christmas morning or for a Hanukkah brunch. The packaging is also more sophisticated than Lucerne’s, so you could bring it to a party with a bag of bagels and show up looking pretty classy.

I'd like to be "Cheese of the Month" someday.
