Perhaps this Florilegium file in the FOOD-DAIRY section might be of use:
fresh-cheeses-msg (70K) 1/ 1/11 Fresh cheeses such as cream cheese and
cottage cheese. Non-aged cheeses.

I think the main thing on "cream cheese" is that when many Americans, at least, think of cream cheese they think of Philadelphia cream cheese, a particular brand and apparently quite different from "cream cheese". It is however, what I use in Digby's Savory Tosted Cheese.
