Not weird at all, Cherry. Cream cheese is a popular spread on date-nut bread.
Brown bread is not date-nut bread, but it is delicious and is great with a cream cheese spread.
B&M makes two kinds in a can - with and without raisins. Excellent when sliced and toasted! Welcome to B&G Foods, Inc.
I love the idea of the cream cheese, olive, green onion thing, thinned with olive brine. The recipe name for that on the internet is "Dirty Martini Dip". Yum! I would go with party pumpernickle loaf for that.
