Philadelphia spread with Cadbury chocolate to hit the shops

Kraft has paired two of its iconic brands in a new cheese-chocolate spread.
Kraft has unveiled a new variety of Philadelphia soft cheese spread containing Cadbury chocolate. It’s the first time the American food giant has paired Cadbury with one of its other products since it controversially bought the British chocolate brand in 2010.
But the controversy this time is likely to be all about the pairing of light soft cheese and chocolate. Two sizes of tubs will hit shop fridges on 1st February – a 160g tub and a 120g four-pack of mini-tubs.
The 30g tubs contain 13% of our daily recommended intake of saturated fat and 86 calories per serving.
But this isn’t a new venture for Kraft, as it already partners Philadelphia with Milka chocolate in Germany and Italy.
Here are some other unusual cheese spread combinations from around the globe:
Very popular in Kentucky, this spread blends cheese, beer and other ingredients including garlic, mustard and horseradish, depending on who’s making it.
Bacon cheese spread
Another medley that’s popular Stateside, this is also served as a dip at parties.
Marmalade cheese spread
There seem to be a few recipes for this particular spread online, although we’re a bit dubious ourselves.
