Introducing Four New Challenge Cream Cheese Products

Taste the Difference

Although Challenge Dairy began with and built its reputation upon our premium quality butters, people may not know we have won hundreds of Gold Medals over the years for several other dairy products including: cheddar cheese, ice cream, instant nonfat milk powder, fresh milk, evaporated milk, cheese spreads, Swiss cheese, Parmesan cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, and even eggs. That's why we are excited to introduce a distinguished line of cream cheese products with superior flavor and an ultra smooth finish.

Our silky cream cheeses are crafted with real milk, cream, and natural ingredients for a taste that's pure and unmatched. All four of our cream cheeses come in 8 ounce packages. We offer two cream cheese blocks and two spreads. Traditionally, the blocks make incredible ingredients in recipes, and the spreads are a delicious topping.

Our New Cream Cheeses

  • Challenge Cream Cheese
  • Challenge Neufchâtel Cheese
  • Challenge Soft Cream Cheese Spread
  • Challenge Whipped Cream Cheese Spread

$300,000 Las Vegas Weekend

We’re headed to Las Vegas this weekend, and our goal is to come home empty handed.

As the Official Butter of the 2013 World Food Championships, we’ll be providing Challenge Butter to over 300 competitors who are traveling from around the globe to battle in the $300,000 World Food Championships cooking competition. That’s a lot of butter, and we don’t want to bring it back.

The World Food Championships combines food, fame, and fortune into one jackpot event and brings the biggest and best food competition champions from around the world together to Las Vegas for one ultimate defining moment. In tournament-style, competitors will battle for their chance to claim the World Food Champion title across seven iconic food categories: BBQ, chili, burger, sandwich, recipe, dessert, and bacon. The competition takes place at the Fremont Street Experience and Fremont East District in Downtown Las Vegas, November 7-10.

“Butter is a staple to nearly every dish that will be created at the World Food Championships,” said Mike McCloud, president and CEO of Trybe Targeting, producers of the World Food Championships. “It’s only natural for a us to pair with a premium dairy partner like Challenge Butter, to help some of the world’s best cooks and chefs create their amazing recipes.”

We couldn’t be more excited or proud to be the official butter of the World Food Championships. To stay up on the food champ chatter, visit or Twitter (@WorldFoodChamp).

Introducing Challenge Spreadable Lite Butter

Enjoy real butter taste but with half the fat and calories of regular butter.

Challenge Spreadable Lite Butter is made with 100% pure, real Challenge Butter blended with canola oil and flavored with olive oil so that it tastes great and spreads silky smooth even when cold. With half the fat and calories of regular butter or margarine, Challenge Spreadable Lite Butter makes a real difference.

Challenge Spreadable Lite Butter is available at most retail locations where Challenge Butter and Challenge Spreadable Butter are currently sold. Not all stores carry the same products, so it's always a good idea to contact the store for actual product selection or to request specific Challenge Dairy products.

For a list of retailers near you, please visit our Where to Buy page.
