Have you considered making cheesecake for the holiday season? Kraft is asking you to think again.
Kraft, parent company of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, posted a video to social media, offering people compensation for not making cheesecake as a holiday treat in light of a nationwide cream cheese shortage.
"No cream cheese on shelves means no cheesecakes on tables," the video said. "So if you can't make your favorite cheesecake, buy any other dessert, on us."
Customers can receive $20 from Kraft with a valid receipt this month. Here's how, according to the website:
