Review: Desperate for something to serve the fun but finicky little girls coming to my 4-year-old's first "real" tea party, I bought Brummel & Brown's Simply Strawberry spread and hoped for the best. Not as rich as cream cheese or butter, the spread was still creamy and sweet. Paired with wheat bread, it made delightful tea sandwiches for our hungry guests. We've also tried it on crackers and toast. At 50 calories a tablespoon, it's not something you want to eat a bowl of. But a little dab can really pep up your morning - or your afternoon tea.
