Why You Might Have Trouble Finding Cream Cheese

You might need to rethink your cheese ball recipes this Christmas!

Residents in New York City first reported going without it. Now…shops down here in the Carolinas have been affected. We’ve been sharing some of our cream cheese supply it seems. It’s caused quite the confusion though. The story has gone viral so-to-speak as to why there is a shortage in bagel shops, when cream cheese can be found in grocery stores. It turns out…cream cheese is made differently for eateries than for the retail shops. It’s made on different assembly lines, by a different manufacturer and following a different supply chain.
