Cheesecake Factory Favorites {Everywhere}

“Have you ever had the Original Cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory.” Asst GM Michael asked me…. Dumbfounded, I looked at him like someone was holding a slice hostage, scared and shaking…”UM, NO?”  (Then I ducked, expecting him to swing at me.)  How crazy it sounded coming from my lips.  Lips that have tasted so many of the options on the vast CF menu.   So I tried it, again and again, until the slice had been properly tasted.  My conclusion?  The perfect consistency, creamy and velvety smooth, the Original Cheesecake is a MUST on the list to try – it all started with that recipe and I highly recommend you try it STAT! (that Sugar Loco speak for “get off your bum and go NOW!”)

Though I was sidetracked by the Original Cheesecake (which is everything except plain), I had my sights set on the Mango Key Lime Cheesecake, a newbie on the menu.  I knew I’d love this one, but needed to try it (and repeat it several times) for myself.  Note to self:  If I ever need to ask for a last meal, it will definitely include this cheesecake.  What is not to like:  mango mousse on a vanilla coconut macaroon crust.  That macaroon crust was something I could totally eat alone – chewy, yet crisp, with a layer of coconut.

I know that there are people out there who don’t care for coconut (gasp!), so I decided to choose you non-coconut-loving-friends your own slice of heaven.  The Hershey’s Chocolate Bar Cheesecake is a favorite and fairly new to the menu as well (launching back in July 2011).  Though it looks like a heavy hitting chocolate slice, I was surprised by how smooth and creamy this concoction was.    A rich layer of chocolate cheesecake nestled between, moist chocolate cake, and smothered in chocolate frosting.  Choco-heaven.

Now you can order your cheesecakes online or go in to your favorite location and have a slice before dinner.  That’s right, I said BEFORE dinner…

Like what you see?  Show them some sugar…



  • Yum, yum, yum! I absolutely must have some of that mango cheesecake soon!
