My kids love cream cheese, so I usually pick up a tub of light cream cheese for their almost-daily bagels. But in the past few months Iíve noticed a new product sneak on to the shelves, right next to the silver-colored tubs of cream cheeseóa larger tub, with a bright yellow lid, offering the ultimate in convenience desserts: Philadelphiaís Ready-To-Eat Cheesecake Filling. Simply buy a ready-made 9-inch pie shell, pour in the filling, add some fruit or other toppings, and there you have it, a super-quick, no-bake cheesecake.

Now I realize that cheesecake is hardly central to a low-fat diet, but we all like to treat ourselves from time to time. Find out why you should spend your fat calories elsewhere. Hereís my review of Philadelphia Ready To Eat Cream Cheese Filling.

has anyone tried adding anything to the filling before placing in pie shell. Flavoring, syrups, etc. this is good filling but my family would like additional flavoring. i have placed cherry, strawberry canned pie filling, but would like to change the flavor of the cheesecake.
