Miyoko's Cream Cheese Debuts at Trader Joe's

Miyoko's Kitchen cashew-based vegan lox spread will soon be stocked alongside its European-style vegan butter at Trader Joe's.

Vegan cream cheese flavor Un-Lox Your Dreams—a Philadelphia-style cream cheese made by California brand Miyoko’s Kitchen—will soon debut at Trader Joe’s. The cream cheese is made to mimic lox schmear using plant-based ingredients such as organic coconut cream, organic cashews, and seaweed. Vegan Instagrammer One Green Smoothie uncovered the news at the recent WTH COW-CON—an animal-rights event in San Francisco hosted by the filmmakers behind What the Health and Cowspiracy. Last year, Miyoko’s Kitchen transferred operations to a larger facility in Petaluma, CA where it increased production capacity to meet growing demand for its vegan products. This year, the brand launched several new products created at the new facility including three cashew-based “pub” cheeses in three flavors—Biergarten Garlic Chive, The Cheers to Cheddah, and Spicy Revolution—and (in addition to the Un-Lox Your Dreams variety), two additional flavors of Philadelphia-style cream cheese: Plainly Classic and Sensational Scallion. Miyoko’s Un-Lox Your Dreams cream cheese joins its European Style Cultured VeganButter at Trader Joe’s, which it added to its West Coast locations in 2016.
