New Thing #167: Vegetable Tofu Cream Cheese

Veggie_TofuI accidentally did a New Thing on Thursday morning. Before the funeral, my brother was responsible for bringing some bagels by my parents' house.

When I got out of the shower, there was quite a spread of bagels and spreads.

There was butter, plain cream cheese, and veggie cream cheese.

Or at least, so I thought.

Turns out what I thought was veggie cream cheese was vegetable tofu cream cheese.

I spread it willy nilly on my bagel thinking it was your run-of-the-mill veggie spread, and then my brother slapped me on the back. "Hey! Good for you for trying the tofu!"

"The what?"

"Don't you read labels?"

I had read the label. All it said was 'Brooklyn Bagel' - you may remember I wrote about that place before. I love it. (But it turns out they could do a better job of labeling their cream cheese containers.)

I didn't love the veggie tofu. It was OK, but it wasn't as flavorful, I guess, as the regular veggie cream cheese.

It was probably healthier, though. And the bagel was good.

I guess next time I'll take a closer look at not just the label, but the consistency of the cream cheese as well.
