A richer, bolder cream cheese spread is only a phone call away with Tillamook County Creamery Association's (TCCA) new Cream Cheese Break-Up Hotline. Debuting today, the nation's first cream cheese "break-up hotline" is dedicated to helping consumers realize that there's more than one cream cheese spread to choose from.

Doubling down on their commitment to "Do Right by Every Bite," TCCA launched the hotline to show cream cheese lovers they can – and should – expect more from cream cheese brands and that they have a choice of something better. Tillamook Farmstyle Cream Cheese Spreads, which include the newest flavor Chive & Onion, are made with real ingredients, without gums, fillers or preservatives, making it the only cream cheese product on the market that you'll want to bring home to mom. 

"As the fastest growing soft cream cheese brand in the country,[1] we're already seeing consumers break up with their old brands and say yes to Tillamook Cream Cheese Spreads," said Sue Kapllani, VP of Marketing, TCCA. "The break-up hotline is our unique way of calling attention to consumers having a choice and that they deserve and can have better thanks to our commitment to bold flavors, high quality ingredients and our 'do right' make process."

With a simple call to the hotline, 844-SAY-GBYE (844-729-4293), unsatisfied cream cheese consumers can air their grievances with their current brand and move on to better once and for all. For those that need encouragement before making their break-up official, the hotline also comes equipped with expert advice and break-up confessionals to help callers realize that there are options when selecting the right cream cheese.

Sex and relationship editor Iman Hariri-Kia of Bustle partnered with the brand and shares her best break-up tips on the hotline, helping callers realize it's time to call it quits with their current brand so they can fall in love with something better. "Residing in New York City, I fancy myself an expert in selecting the perfect cream cheese for your bagel," Hariri-Kia said. "Tillamook Cream Cheese Spreads are not just a cream cheese dream, they're bolder, creamier and undeniably more flavorful, and when you find the right cream cheese spread, you want to put a (bread) ring on it right away. That's where I come in."
