When I saw Miyoko's Sensational Scallion sitting on the Whole Foods shelves, I got goosebumps. One of my favorite brands making my absolute favorite flavor? It appeared to be a collaboration for the ages. But with great hopes come great disappointments (that's the saying, right?) and this one sure did disappoint. While this formula was a little heavier and harder to spread than the others, it was the taste that left something to be desired. Strangely, the most overpowering flavor was a lemony citrus taste, masking even the divine savoriness of the scallions. I found when I mixed equal parts of Miyoko's Sensational Scallion with another plain cream cheese it evened out this zingy, acidic taste and was far more pleasant. Next time, I might try to mix chopped scallions into my favorite cream cheese instead of buying this pre-made option.
