Saturday, July 30, is National Cheesecake Day! God bless whoever came up with the idea to add sugar to cheese, bake it in the oven over a nice graham cracker crust and serve it up for dessert . . . except for the guy who did it with ricotta cheese, because that’s just wrong! Nowadays there are so many different kinds of cheesecake to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one. Ordering dessert at the Cheesecake Factory for example can take like 20 minutes. There are so many choices and they are always coming out with new flavors like the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar Cheesecake , which makes its debut tomorrow. It is described as, “layers of chocolate cheesecake, moist chocolate cake and ganache, topped with a creamy chocolate frosting and chocolate chips” who could say no to that?
On National Cheesecake day, The Cheesecake Factory will make the task of cheesecake selection a little bit easier and you can get two for the price of one because all slices of cheesecake will be half off! Oh no . . . wait, you can only get one slice per diner and also you have to be “dining in” which means by the time you get to dessert you’re going to already be stuffed by The Cheesecake Factory’s gi-normous portions. But that’s probably a good thing because otherwise we might be tempted to overindulge!
