Cream Cheese Icing came out runny ! Is the cream cheese in UK different?

I made a really good carrot cake today (followed "Moist Carrot Cake Recipe" in Chow) but was disappointed with the cream cheese icing as it came out too soft and runny. Perhaps I should blame the cook but I noticed that the cream cheese ("Philadelphia" purchased in local supermarket, but in plastic oval tubs and NOT in rectangular blocks wrapped in foil) seemed softer than I remember it. Is it my imagination or do they sell a "softer" version here, in which case how should I adapt the icing recipe?
