Apple & Cheese Soup

 Apple & Cheese Soup

Kraft is a brand that I grew up with, and I suspect many of you did too.  Kraft is a trusted brand and I love that rather than just sticking with the tried and true,  they are always coming up with fresh new ideas to make meals even better and easier.  The latest addition to the Kraft product line has Kraft blending their Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia, delivering an even softer and creamier melt to make old and new favourite meals even better!  They aren’t joking around when they say that “The melt is all you’ll remember”!

Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia is available in three delicious flavours:  Creamy Mozza, Creamy Herb & Garlic, and Creamy Mexicana.

As soon as I heard about these new cheese blends I new right away that the Creamy Mexicana would bring my Apple & Cheese soup to a whole new level of creamy goodness.  I love cooking with Kraft Shredded Cheese because of how convenient it is to cook with, especially when you need a whole lot of shredded cheese and very little time to sit around shredding it yourself.  Using Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia, I got all the convenience and cheesy flavour but with even better, creamier results!

My family already loved my Apple & Cheese soup, but they noticed right away that it seemed just a bit creamier than normal.  My sister was over watching the babies while I did housework and made the soup so there was one more person that usual over.  We finished off the entire pot of soup for dinner which is almost unheard of around here!
