Enjoy $9.95 flat-rate shipping on this gift when you use coupon code cakes at checkout. Sometimes good things come in pairs. For instance, we've partnered with The Cheesecake Factory® as their exclusive online vendor. And we're pleased to present the cheesecake that inspired the creation of The Cheesecake Factory®. The Original Cheesecake 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. And that's when Evelyn had the idea of opening a cheesecake shop. The Cheesecake Factory® has come a long way, but their 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 see what we're talking about.

        Very good cheesecake. I would be more pleased if I hadn't seen the exact same cake at my local Safeway grocery store for $15.99. Maybe Harry and David should lower their price.

            A:

            Glenn, the cheesecakes from the Cheesecake Factory are not pre-sliced. We do not currently offer any version of their cheesecakes that are pre-sliced, though we do make our own that is. The Cheesecake Party Wheel that we make here in Medford, OR is pre-sliced. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/1naPOx1

            A:

            All of our Cheesecake Factory Cheesecakes contain eggs, and we would not recommend our cheesecakes to those allergic to eggs. However, we invite you to browse our many other gifts, and encourage you to contact us should you have any other ingredient questions.

        • Q:

          1) How long to unfreeze the cheesecake?

          2) Will it taste as good as if it was never frozen?
          Asked on 12/21/2013 by ck from United States

          1 answer

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            CK, we are glad you asked! All cheesecakes may be frozen for up to 6 months without any loss of taste or texture. If frozen more than 6 months, taste will still be the same, but texture will have changed significantly.
            If you choose to freeze your cheesecake, we recommend that it be thawed under refrigeration by removing it from the box, and removing the plastic wrapping and paper collar. To thaw quickly, refrigerate the cheesecake uncovered for 4-5 hours. To thaw overnight, place the unwrapped cheesecake back in its box and place in the refrigerator overnight. Once thawed, your cheesecake should be refrigerated at all times. We do not recommend refreezing.
