Philadelphia Cream Cheese created a tongue-in-cheek video about conspiracy theorists called the Cheesecakers Society. The video poses the question of whether the early Pilgrims and Native Americans ate cheesecake during the first Thanksgiving. Of course, the answer is no, as they didn’t have the basic ingredients (sugar, cream cheese, sour cream, etc.), however this isn’t enough to stop the Cheesecakers Society from writing a good conspiracy to prove that cheesecake has always been on the Thanksgiving menu. The goal of this campaign is to put cheesecake (which of course, requires buying cream cheese) at the center of dessert planning along more traditional options such as apple pie and pumpkin pie.Adweek 11/19/19
