What day is this celebrated? December 13

What is National Cream Cheese Frosting Day? This is a day to celebrate Americans’ love and desire for this seasonal favorite.

Who created this day? This day was founded by Arla in 2018.  Arla is the leader in clean label cream cheese, the key ingredient in the nation’s most beloved seasonal dessert topping: Cream cheese frosting. We know that searches soar during the holidays for Cream Cheese Frosting, so we want to celebrate.

How should this day be celebrated? Arla will be giving away a year’s worth of cream cheese via a social contest so cream cheese frosting fans can celebrate year round with the better-for-you cream cheese.
