I'm sorry, Gravy Queen, but I don't even think to approach it.
I'm afraid I could become addicted, and I don't want to add another item to my (long) forbidden food list!

I've never seen Philadelphia product, but in the local Russian store they sell something simular, but with an addition of chocolate chips mixed in, it is to die for, G-d forbid.

I tried finding a copycat recipe for the Philly chocolate and couldn't find one. I was going to make it with quark instead of cream cheese. It's probably a good thing I couldn't find a copycat recipe.

All you have to do is to mix in chocolate syrup in, pr melted chocolate.

The flavor of chocolate and cream cheese just doesn't work for me. I've tried multiple chocolate cheesecake recipes. The sour componant of the cheese clashes on my palate with the cocoa flavor of the chocolate.

I do enjoy a good chocolate Panacotta. Yum.

Good point. It's not my favourite combo either. What was I thinking? Well, chocolate almost always sounds good.

I know what you mean, it seems like the chocolate exaggerates the sourness of the cheese. I can eat it and enjoy it, but prefer a vanilla cheesecake base. Often if I am doing a "chocolate" cheesecake, I'll make some brownie batter and bake 1/2 of that in the bottom of the springform and put a vanilla base on top and bake until done. I'll bake the other half of the brownies and cut those into little squares all over the top and drizzle with ganache. It's more work, but I prefer chocolate with my cheesecake this way.

Oh my gosh...I have taste tested both the milk chocolate and the dark chocolate (they have white chocolate too), and I like the dark chocolate the best!!! It is so wonderful. You can taste the cream cheese and the chocolate. I love it on whole wheat bagels. I'm hooked. Sometimes I find myself going into the fridge, spoon in hand, just to sneak a bite plain! I highly recommend this!

Let my tombstone say, "Death by Dark Chocolate". It doesn't matter what you mix with it.

We tried the dark tonight, utterly delicious! Straight out of the little tub, mmmmmm. Does it also come in blocks like regular Philly? Couldn't find blocks.

Probably a good thing, no blocks. It's disappearing way too fast! Soooo good!

Well, that clears up how you eat it...all you need is a spoon, same as Nutella.

Easy Little Grasshoppers. One must learn to crawl before one can walk. Finger foods first.

I think I am so lucky - I tried it and didn't like it at all. One of the very few chocolate things I don't like. Maybe it is because I like really, really dark chocolate and the chocolate mixed with the philly makes ir really creamy.

I too like very dark chocolate. The 7-11 near my home keeps a bowl of Lint chocolates on the counter next to the register. Every time I go in there I always end up buying just one piece. I try to be a good girl.
