Cheese, glorious cheese! From sweet desserts to savory stews and from fanciful feasts to mellow meriendas—Filipinos have a knack for finding a way to incorporate cheese into their dining table.

While cheese blocks and slices hold a special place in the bellies of Pinoy diners, the ease and versatility that cheese spread gives it a winner in the hearts of countless consumers. But are you sure that your beloved spread is actually cheese?

One look at our local grocery stores will show a thoroughly saturated cheese spread market with jars of all shapes and sizes excitedly announcing their variants. With all these choices, it’s easy to think that the Philippines has several options for real cheese spread. But that’s not the case. Let’s #GetReal

What is real cheese spread? Simply put, real cheese spread should taste and look as delicious and as creamy as the milk it was made from. After all, the best cheeses are made from only the highest quality milk. So it makes sense that the great dairy farmers at Arla Foods—who produce some of the world’s best milk—would also be able to make a genuinely delicious real cheese spread like no other.

More often than not, we think that cheese spread should be yellow and thick, much like how a puddle of melted cheddar cheese would look. But unfortunately just because it reminds you of cheese, doesn’t mean it really is.

That’s why this year, the people that brought you Arla milk, cheese slices, and cream cheese spreads now brings you the country’s first real cheese spread, Arla Cheesy Spread. Made from almost 90% milk, Arla Cheesy Spread guarantees consumers that they’re tasting nothing but the honest-to-goodness deliciousness that an authentic cheese product can offer.  #LetInTheGoodness with Arla Cheesy Spread.

From looks alone, we can see that Arla Cheesy Spread is different—a very good different. Its natural white is the result of the purity of the cow’s milk used and the lack of coloring agents. Its flavor, on the other hand, is a delicate marriage of mild salty and milky tastes, making it easy to pair with practically any food. 

With just five ingredients in each bottle, this is as close to natural as we can get with a cheese spread. And since Arla Cheesy Spread is a real food, it doesn’t just deliver on taste and texture, it also holistically nourishes. 

Quick and easy doesn’t need to equate to empty calories. Arla Cheesy Spread is the right balance of convenience, taste, and nutrition. No matter if it is enjoyed on plain white bread or as a sauce to a hearty meal—Arla Cheesy Spread makes it easy for everyone to #LetInTheGoodness.

The trip is also meant to emphasize and show how Arla prides itself for producing quality, all-natural dairy products for over 100 years, with milk coming straight from its network of farmer-owned Arla farms across Northern Europe. One of the most innovative dairy specialists in the world, Arla follows a quality assurance program called the Arlagården to ensure that milk is produced with utmost care and is of high quality.
