Due to Cream Cheese Shortage, Philadelphia Cream Cheese Offering Folks $20 To Not Make Cheesecake

Congestion in the supply chain has had major ripple effects in the food and restaurant industry, with much of it leading to shortages in goods like chicken and cream cheese, which lack of the latter has put a chokehold on bagel shops.

What’s more, according to Google trends, cheesecake is the favorite holiday dessert to make in America. Unprecedented demand for cream cheese has forced Philadelphia Cream Cheese to stand up and take action to ease the strain.

Philadelphia Cream Cheese is encouraging folks to buy any dessert, and they will reimburse the cost to replace your homemade cheesecake up to $20. On December 17 and December 18 starting at 9am EST, fans can go to SpreadTheFeeling.com to be one of the first to reserve a limited spot to receive a $20 digital reward to cover the cost of your holiday dessert with a valid receipt.
