With the holidays upon us, you might be trying to figure out what you’re going to take with you to your potluck, family dinner, work party, etc. Let me suggest you forget the green bean casserole, dinner rolls or pumpkin pie. If you want to leave a lasting impression, my suggestion would Eli’s Cheesecake!
I received their Holiday Sampler and oh my goodness, it’s heaven in a box! It comes with three flavors: Hot Chocolate with Salted Caramel, Pumpkin and Chocolate Caramel Pecan. I love that they aren’t your traditional cheesecake flavors!
So, I decided I would start with the Pumpkin piece. Let me forewarn you, I may use phrases such as “oh my gosh” and “YUM!” a lot with this review! First of all, the flavor was spot on if you were to compare it to a pumpkin pie taste. With the cheesecake, you get the creamy affect and a cheesecake crust! So much better than a boring pie.
Next I had the Hot Chocolate with Salted Caramel. Now this one, my first thought was, “how are they going to capture that taste”. HA! Never fear, they have it pegged. You go through the top layer which has the slight sensation of biting into a soft layer of marshmallow and then into the chocolate. I’m not sure how to explain the taste other than “hot chocolate”. It’s seriously hot chocolate in cheesecake form. Holy cow, that was probably my favorite!
As for the my last piece, can you go wrong with anything Chocolate Caramel Pecan? I loved the thick chocolate and caramel as you took a bite of the cheesecake. I tried the first three pieces above with a fork, but as I ate through the rest of the cheesecake, I didn’t bother with a fork. lol I just pulled out the flavor of choice and bit in!
Each piece was perfectly portioned. And as you can see from the other photo, there are 14 slices with this Sampler! It comes packed in dry ice, which is a necessity because mine was left on my front porch for who knows how long! Thankfully it’s late fall and was cold outside!
*I received this cheesecake for review. The opinions are my own.
