I absolutely LOVE cheesecake. It is my favorite dessert, bar none. I was offered the opportunity to review Eli’s Cheesecake. I should have had this review up at least a week ago but quite honestly, we gobbled up all the cheesecake and it slipped my mind since it wasn’t in the fridge for me to see every time I opened the door. In other words, it’s really yummy.

Eli's Cheesecake

ABOUT ELI’S CHEESECAKE

Eli’s uses the finest ingredients like pure Madagascar vanilla, cultured cream cheese and sour cream, fresh Michigan apples (never frozen or processed), fine chocolates, real key lime juice and more. Eli’s desserts are baked in small batches, decorated by hand and certified kosher.

MY THOUGHTS

I received an Eli’s Cheesecake Original Favorites Sampler, which retails for $40. This sampler contains four slices each of Original Plain, Chocolate Chip, Strawberry, and Candy Bar made with Heath Toffee Bars. The whole cheesecake weighs in at 3 lbs 8 oz.. The cheesecake is very smooth, creamy and rich. In my area we see a lot of New York style cheesecake. The Eli’s is similar in taste to that but seems slightly less dense and heavy. Also the crust is different. The Original and the Strawberry both have a shortbread crust, which is very tasty. I expected my favorite of the four to be the Strawberry. Surprisingly, my favorite of the four turned out to be the Chocolate Chip, which is loaded with chocolate chips and on a chocolate cookie crust. The Strawberry was very good, the strawberry topping tasted fresh and not like some of the fake canned stuff you see from time to time. Hubby loved the nutty chocolate flavor of the Heath bar slices. The Original was also delicious. This cheesecake would be perfect for those who love cheesecake, or for those who enjoy entertaining and want to set out a yummy dessert.
