This week at our local Walmart, Puck was on sale, although it took around half a week before any stock was actually available and put on the International Dairy shelf.

The one flavour they had is made primarily from milk, and despite salt being listed third on the ingredient list, it is quite a salty product. In fact, it predominantly tastes like salt, with a faint note of some kind of dairy. It's hard to tell through all the saltiness but I'd say that underlying flavour is close to plain cream cheese.
The texture is smooth and extremely soft, much softer than spreadable cream cheese, Nutella, or Cheez Whiz. It's firmness is closer to cake frosting.

From their website FAQ:

1. What is Puck Creamy Spread made of? What are the ingredients of Puck Creamy Spread?
Puck Creamy Spread is made with natural and pure milk with chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. It is free from palm oil, artificial flavors, nuts and contains 30% less sugar compared to other similar sweet spreads.

2. Is Puck Creamy Spread considered cheese? Does it consist of cheese?
No, Puck Creamy Spread is not cheese. Puck is offering consumers a sweet creamy spread, rich in milk, protein and calcium, and available in 3 flavors, strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. It contains 30% less sugar compared to similar sweet spreads.
Philadelphia Cream Cheese at Walmart Canada is 6.98 CAD for 340g, or 2.05 CAD per 100g.
Currently Walmart's regular price of Puck is 11.97 CAD for 500g, or 2.39 CAD per 100g so the sale price of 9.47 CAD is a great time to try it.
Or you could buy Walmart's Great Value brand Cream Cheese Spread at 2.47 CAD per 227g, or 1.09 CAD per 100g and add salt to it. Won't be quite as soft and conveniently spreadable, though.

Trafalgar's European Explorer 2006 memoirs part 3

A picture from my 2006 trip, a Trafalgar 's bus tour, on an itinerary called the European Explorer. I can't remember why I had this couple in the picture, but I do vaguely remember this to be in London, on the first official day of the tour group getting together. Their insistence on my helping them take a picture caused the three of us to be late getting back to the bus. The local tour guide had a "rule" about lateness, that we had to buy chocolate to share with everyone. As it turned out, later in the trip, on at least two occasions, we were stuck on the highway on either a long commute or a traffic jam, and I had chocolate and chocolate-covered marzipan to share. About the chocolate-covered marzipan -- Apparently we were in Austria just as they were celebrating Mozart's birthday with special marzipans wrapped in foil with the famous composer's picture. I'm pretty sure it was Mirabell Mozartkugeln . Anyway, there were enough to go around the en

Trafalgar's European Explorer 2006 memoirs part 10

The last of my pictures (at least the ones that survived the cheesy disposable cameras) from my 2006 trip, a Trafalgar 's bus tour, on an itinerary called the European Explorer. Below is the obligatory group photo. Not sure everyone's in it, actually. I'm pretty sure this one was taken by the tour director, Mike Scrimshire as I'm in the back row, on the right side.
