With news headlines and images of cargo ships unable to port, you may have rushed out weeks ago to get your holiday shopping done amidst talk of shortages and supply chain issues. But you probably missed the boat (no pun intended) on…cream cheese. Please check in on your friends who rely on this spreadable goodness for their keto macros because they are not okay. Things are so out of hand that Kraft (the owner of Philadelphia Cream Cheese) is offering money to those will forgo the ingredient this holiday season.
How to Earn Your Cash
The company is desperately trying to overcome the cream cheese shortage to the extent of handing out 20 bucks to those who won’t be tempted to whip up some Classic Keto Cheesecake or use keto Cream Cheese Frosting as a cupcake topper.
To earn your cream cheese cash, simply make a reservation at spreadthefeeling.com this Friday or Saturday after 12p.m. ET. A total of 18,000 reservations will be available between the two days on a first-come, first-serve basis. After you score a spot, purchase any dessert (sans cream cheese) between Friday (Dec. 17) and Christmas Eve but hang on to that receipt. You’ll submit your proof of purchase between Dec. 28 and Jan. 4 to get your $20 digital reward.
Cream Cheese-Free Options
Now if you pulled a 2020-style hoarding move and stocked up on the Philly spread, maybe you will be delighting your guests with a Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake. If you didn’t foresee the cream cheese drought, not to worry—we have you covered. The following keto treats will fill your festive dessert table but won’t require any of the coveted spread:
Keto Apple Pie
Keto Pumpkin Pie
Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
We hope you have a delicious holiday season with the keto-friendly desserts of your choice, or if you’re taking a cheat day, enjoy those sugary splurges but let’s get back on that wagon for the new year! Remember, if you decide you can live without cream cheese this holiday season, reserve your spot tomorrow at spreadthefeeling.com to earn $20 cash back.
Here’s to health, happiness, and (hopefully) more cream cheese in 2022!
