Has anybody tried that container of cheescake filling from Philadelphia cream cheese??? Looks interesting on the tv commercials...and it is from the cream cheese company I usually use.

I tried a tub of this a few months back and wasn't too impressed. Had a stronger than I like lemon flavor and never set up very well, too creamy.

It was on sale for $3.99 and I had a $1 off coupon, and it was certainly convenient to use, but if your expecting anything more than an okay quick dessert, I think you'll be disappointed.

I've tried that. If you're more interested in convenience than quality of taste, it's a decent product. Actually, it's not bad for what it is. It's not gonna make you a "wow" cheesecake. However, it is much better than no cheesecake at all.

I wasn't real impressed with it myself. I had high expectations though, being the Philadelphia brand and all. But fortunately I had a $2 coupon for it. Also, I didn't use it for a traditional cheesecake, but in mini tarts.

I have not been tempted to try it-to be honest, I still like Sara Lees frozen cheesecake!
