Description: Cheesecake flavour reduced fat soft cheese dip with raspberry coulis and wheatmeal biscuits.
The bizarre thing about these Philadelphia snacks is that they don’t actually contain Philadelphia… or at least not the Philadelphia cream cheese we know and love. Instead you get a rather unpleasant sludge which tastes like it has been made by combining flour, sugar, water and battery acid. If you were to slap this between a bagel with a piece of smoked salmon, you’d be cruelly disappointed.
The digestive is simply that, a digestive, albeit one on the slightly soft side and with a dusty aftertaste.
The coulis contains a commendable 51% raspberries which accounts for its strong raspberry flavour. This would be a high percentage for a jam, but is on the low side for a proper coulis.
Eaten as a combo you get the passing notion of the cheese, a brief visit by the coulis, but overall it is the dusty biscuit which dominates.
Conclusion: Buy a packet of McVitie’s and dip them in your tea.
