They're always right next to each other at the store, in nearly identical packaging: cream cheese and Neufchâtel. I've always gotten cream cheese, more out of habit than anything else. But the other day when picking up a package of my reliable brand, I realized that I don't really know what Neufchâtel is, despite the familarity of its name and packaging. I decided to pick some up. And in my research, I discovered that true Neufchâtel isn't really what you may think it is.
