Franklin Foods Inc., Enosburg Falls, Vt.
James Shields, 8th grade:
The taste is unique. When you take a bite, first you taste strawberry yogurt and the taste ends with the original cream cheese and bagel taste. It perfectly goes with the bagel with soft bits of delicious strawberries. When I first smelled it, I expected it to smell like regular cream cheese. Instead, I got a strawberry yogurt smell, which is great because I love strawberries. The package itself is no problem to open. A three-year-old could open this package if they tried, so it’s a good package with a good cover that can appeal to anyone. Anyone who likes strawberries would want this because of the great taste. Overall, I would recommend this great-tasting cream cheese. It’s a great bagel topper.
Ruby Morales, 8th grade:
It tastes like strawberry yogurt. I like it because it has one of my favorite fruits – strawberry. The cream cheese texture is smooth, creamy and also very fruity. And, by the way, it is very soft. It smells fruity and like yogurt too. The packaging is very easy to open. I think that everyone can use this product.
Joe Burson, 8th grade:
The packaging is nice and simple. It tells you exactly what it is. It is very easy to open. It smells like strawberries and cream. When you bite in, first you feel the soft, creamy texture. Then you taste the strawberries. To completely get the taste, you need to slather it on. I think that everyone could use this.
Samantha Pfander, 8th grade:
Strawberry toothpaste – that’s what this cream cheese tastes like. I could see this product in my bathroom, not my pantry. If the bagel is good, the cream cheese can be tolerated, almost enjoyed. But I wouldn’t suggest licking your fingers; all you get is an artificial-tasting paste. This spread is obviously geared toward kids, with the sweet taste and easy-to-open package. I can actually see six-year-olds asking for it. But they have strange taste. I mean, I ate multi-colored raisin bread in kindergarten, so I can’t see this selling to anyone over 10, basically anyone with an atom of sense. But who cares about quality, nowadays, as long as it can sell? And this can sell to people who also eat canned peaches and bottled meat. Maybe I’m being finicky, but the other consumers will be too.
Kyle Jacobs, 8th grade:
I like the way the yogurt tastes. It tastes like regular cream cheese with a hint of strawberries. I could feel the bits of strawberries too; I don’t mind that. It smells like
strawberries and yogurt. It’s very appealing for little kids or teenagers who like to eat bagels. The packaging is good, too. It keeps the product fresh. I loved it, and hope you do too.
Hannah Ryan, 8th grade:
This strawberries ’n’ cream flavor tastes like yogurt on a piece of eggy bread. When one first opens the package, the smell is overwhelming. It smells contradictory because of the sweet and salty combination. The texture is smooth with small bits of strawberries in it to prove to the consumer there are real strawberries, not just artificial color and taste. The packaging is easy to open in the car on a family road trip. I’m sure it will save a lot of time for people on the go. Strawberries and cream screams suburban mom on the way to soccer practice to pick up the kids.
Emma Soglin, 8th grade:
Under the easy-to-open package, there lies a nice and creamy, pale pink spread. It has a very fruity texture with a nice taste of milk and strawberries. This quality product is perfect for anyone and on any food – from bagels to toast.
Jay Miranda, 8th grade:
The cream cheese was a bit sour, but it still had a good taste to it – not too sweet or too sour. Just perfect! The texture is smooth, very good with the bagel. The smell is very much like strawberries. Packaging is good, not too flashy but very nice. I think everybody would use this product.
Mariah Davis, 8th grade:
The yogurt is extremely light and delicate. It is soft, smooth and it’s very easy to open the appealing packaging. It smells sweet and fruity. This product would be a successful product to any person who likes the texture and taste of strawberry cream cheese.
Myles Dooley, 8th grade:
This is very good food if you have ever had cream cheese or strawberries. Yogurt combines them and that’s how it tastes. It is soft and smooth; it’s way easy to spread and light. It smells like strawberries and cream. It is in a small container that is very easy to open with small tags that stick out so you can open it easily. This is a very good food to all people. Any age could eat it.
Brandon Taylor, 8th grade:
It tastes like original cream cheese every other bite. When I don’t taste the original, I taste a little bit of strawberry. It feels smooth, and a little of the chunky strawberries are hard, but you barely taste them. The package is easy to open. I think even an old lady or man can open it. I think the product is good for every age, but especially for kids because it is kind of sweet.
Jessica Payne, 8th grade:
My first impression on the yogurt and cream cheese spread was that the packaging was very plain and had nothing that made the yogurt and cream cheese different from others. Though it was very easy to open the packaging, I feel it needs more color. When I opened it, I was greeted with the great smell of strawberries (very appealing to children); however, the look was unappetizing. The pasty pink color and seeds on top made the product look extremely artificial. But the first taste was delicious, until I recognized the taste from another cream cheese company that makes the same product without yogurt. Overall, the taste and smell is good, but the idea is unoriginal. I do think this product is a good breakfast for adults and children on the go. I recommend changing the packaging to make the product pop.
