SHOPPERS who like an unusual flavour combination may want to head on down to Asda where it’s selling a Philadelphia cheese spread mixed with Milka chocolate.
Philadelphia suggests the combo could be slathered on pancakes but we reckon it could also be a good topping for cheesecakes.
It could also make the ideal pairing for those who can’t decide whether to go for a cheeky cheese course after dinner or a dessert.
The spread was first spotted in store at Asda by food blogger Newfoodsuk whose post has now had more than 3,000 likes.
One Instagram user commented: “I mean, wouldn’t want them with Sweet Chilli Sensations but I’d defo give it a go.”
While another said: “I’ve tried that! It tastes like chocolate cheesecake – so good on a croissant!”
But not everyone is convinced. Once person commented: “Don’t know how I feel about this”.
Newfoodsuk says the spread costs £1 for a 150g tub but we’ve asked Asda to confirm and we’ll update this story as soon as we get a response.
We couldn’t find the new spread online at any of the four major supermarkets although they do sell a range of different savoury Philadelphia cheese spreads for about £1 to £2.
According to Philadelphia, there are 430 calories in a tub or 86 per the recommended 30g serving.
An adult man should have around 2,500 calories a day while it’s 2,000 for a woman, according to NHS guidelines.

But chocolate and cheese isn’t the only unusual food flavour out there. Just last month a Marmite peanut butter launched.
Asda is also selling a Marmite flavoured chocolate egg this year.
Meanwhile Aldi has launched a parma violets flavoured gin.
