If you thought a delicious, silky smooth slice of cheesecake couldn’t get any better than it already is, think again. The Cheesecake Factory is now making a line of premium ice cream made with cheesecake ingredients right in the mix. The new ice cream doesn’t just have chunks of cheesecake blended in — the ice cream itself uses a cream-cheese blend, and sour cream is swirled in amid the graham-cracker crust and other yummy ingredients.
Their new collection of premium cheesecake ice cream comes in seven flavors: birthday cake, chocolate, cookies and cream, Key lime, original, salted caramel and strawberry. Cheesecake Factory announced they are available now in the frozen aisle of grocery stores nationwide for around $4.99 for a 14-ounce carton.
The birthday cake flavor is made with cake-flavored cheesecake ice cream, cake pieces, swirls of icing and candy sprinkles. Cookies and cream blends cookies-and-cream cheesecake ice cream and chocolate-cookie swirls. Salted caramel is not only made with caramel cheesecake ice cream, but it also has graham swirls and sea salt caramel sauce.
Chocolate includes chocolate fudge swirls, while Key lime has graham swirls and the strawberry flavor has both strawberry swirls and graham swirls. Original also has graham swirls, so it will be just like digging into a slice of cheesecake with a graham cracker crust!
The new ice cream line is an expansion of the restaurant’s Cheesecake Factory At Home line, which includes boxed baking mixes so you can make cheesecake, cupcakes or cookies right in your own kitchen.
You can also buy whole cheesecakes — including original, strawberry, chocolate, white chocolate raspberry truffle and red velvet — in the freezer section of grocery stores.
If you’re looking for even more cheesecake ice cream, you can find cheesecake-flavored ice creams from other brands, too. Bryers makes a New York-style strawberry cheesecake ice cream, and Ben and Jerry’s has a caramel chocolate cheesecake truffles flavor that looks amazing.
