Brooklyn, NY (June 09, 2015)
Keeping with the fad of delicious overseas foods literally taking over our dairy aisles (Greek yogurt or Kefir anyone?) a start up company from Brooklyn, NY has launched its line of Extra Thick Double and Single Creams into local supermarkets. What exactly is Double Cream? It is an extra thick, spoon-able fresh cream that can be used as a breakfast spread, or for baking and cooking.
The oh so yummy staple found in almost every kitchen in the UK, Australia and Europe is just about as thick as sour cream but without the sour cultures added (it has a fresh milky creamy taste), it can be dolloped or spread into breakfast items like waffles, scones or bagels; to thicken and create rich dishes such as creamy soups, pasta sauces or mashed potatoes, make homemade ice cream or dolloped onto summer fruits with a sprinkle of sugar. The Single Cream (half fat) version can even be used as a fresh coffee creamer. From sweet to savory, the list is endless.
If consumers thought regular yogurt was watery and bland before Greek came along, then using Extra Thick Double Cream in their next dish may just make them wish the British had stuck around a bit longer. Well, maybe not, but at least now people in the U.S can have their Double Cream…and not their Queen.
About the Brooklyn Creamery Company
The Brooklyn Creamery Company was founded by 2 guys from Brooklyn who thought that Americans deserved better in their foods. Traveling the world, they found local creameries from Tasmania, Australia to the rolling hills of Jersey, to bring Double Cream back to the US. Produced locally in upstate NY with hormone free milk sourced from family farms, their All Natural Extra Thick Double Cream and Single Cream can now be found in Stop and Shop, Giant, Big Y, Kings, King Kullen, Dave’s Marketplace, Mrs. Green’s and many other independent stores in the Northeast. Look for it in either the sour cream or fresh cream section. For more information visit http://www.bkcreamery.com or facebook.com/brooklyncreamery.
