PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Original Cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory® dates back to the late 1940s, when Evelyn Overton made a cheesecake for her husband's boss. He liked it so much that he asked Evelyn to make a dozen more that he could give as Christmas gifts. That's when Evelyn had the idea of opening a cheesecake shop. Today, the Original Cheesecake is as tasty as that first one Evelyn made. With a crust of crushed graham crackers and a delicious, creamy filling, this cheesecake is simple but extravagant. And you can taste the tradition and attention to quality in every bite. Have this cheesecake delivered to you and you'll understand just what we mean.

    Comments about Harry & David The Cheesecake Factory® Original:

    This was what my daughter wanted for her 13th birthday cake. It was a last minute choice and I was worried that it wouldn't get to me on time. No worries though! It arrived on time, in pristine condition, and it tasted just as good as we thought it would! I wish I had pictures of it to share, but, it was eaten so quickly, there wasn't anything left to take a picture of!

                Comments about Harry & David The Cheesecake Factory® Original:

                We purchased the restaurant size original cheesecake factory cheesecake and the Reese's chocolate peanut butter cheesecake as gifts and sent it ahead of our arrival for Thanksgiving. It was great because we got to try both and hands down the original is the best. It is soooo good. My mother in law and the rest of the family shared our appreciation for it. The graham cracker crust is yummy and you will crave the cheesecake. The Reese's choc. peanut butter cheesecake is way tooo rich and each piece is too sweet and too much for two people to finish even though you may love chocolate, peanut butter, carmel, and cheesecake as we all do. The Reeses combo is probably about 1200 calories a piece while the original is 600 calories a piece. Even though they are both 10" cakes they are tall which make made them more than enough for our family get together of 7. I'm ordering the original again for everyone for Christmas because each piece tastes like more!!!! I caught my mother in law eating it for breakfast.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Great! Got status e-mailed every step of the way. I will order from Harry and David again.

                      Considering you don't recommend re-freezing, are these cheesecakes easily cut when frozen so that we don't end up wasting any?

                        Lauren, we recommend that you partially thaw and cut desired portion with a knife dipped in hot water. Unused portions can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days after thawing.
