I was down to my last three bricks of cream cheese, but local grocery came through for me again. Last year I got two or three cases of cream cheese for 69¢ a brick during the holidays - it wasn't quite that good this time and I hadn't expected it to be - but I got it for 88¢ a brick, so I now have two cases stashed in the fridge again. We'd be in a world o' hurt if we had to pay regular price for this . . . sure wish we had a Costco nearby, but . . . c'est la vie.
