Philadelphia Cream Cheese expands product line

BY Jason Owen

GLENVIEW, Ill. — Philadelphia Cream Cheese is looking to broaden its appeal with the launch of new cream cheese products this spring.

Spicy Jalapeno is the newest flavor of cream cheese spread from the Philadelphia company. This new cream cheese flavor is made with real jalapenos and adds a hint of heat to a bagel, sandwiches, flatbreads and dips.

"Knowing consumers are becoming more adventurous with their food choices, we didn’t skimp on the heat," said Nina Barton, senior director of Philadelphia Cream Cheese. "We weren’t afraid to make our new jalapeno flavor actually rather spicy. On the other spectrum, to satisfy our consumers’ sweet tooth, we’re also introducing another delicious option called Snack Delights that’s perfect for an afternoon snack."

Philadelphia Snack Delights are a new dippable, spreadable snack topper, combining Philadelphia Reduced Fat Cream Cheese with real ingredients. The product is launching in stores on April 15 and is available in five different flavors: Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, Cinnamon and Caramel.

Hannaford to donate bottle, can deposits to charity

BY Alaric DeArment

ALBANY, N.Y. — Customers who recycle bottles and cans with deposit values at Greenback Redemption Centers in Hannaford supermarkets in New York state will have the option of donating the money to local charities.

Hannaford announced a partnership with Tomra, the company that developed the "reverse vending machines" for collecting beverage containers at the Greenback centers, to arrange the donations. The first beneficiary will be the Northeastern New York Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which will be the featured community organization through May 31. Donated proceeds from 22 Hannaford stores will go toward Type 1 diabetes research.

"As a supermarket retailer, we are in an ideal position to raise awareness and support for worthy causes in the areas we serve," Hannaford Supermarkets community relations specialist Molly Tarleton said. "Hannaford is happy to partner with Tomra to provide our shoppers with an easy and convenient way to support important organizations in our neighborhoods."

Under the program, each Tomra reverse vending machine will feature a button that the customer can press after recycling deposit-valued bottles and cans to convert the deposit into a donation.
