Just didn’t think this had a whole lot of flavor. For the most part, all I could taste was the cream cheese. Garnished with black sesame seeds for a little contrast. It was OK, but nothing th...

I love this stuff on bagels as a sandwich spread. I hadn't thought of the sesame seeds, but I love them. Toast them a little first, for best flavor.
