I was walking through Publix the other day with my 15 year old daughter (who has severe dairy allergy). I may or may not have let out a HUGE gasp and yelled “back up back up!!” She looked at me like I had completely lost it. “What is it mom?!”
All I had to do was point at this box in the freezer case! “Ahhhh!!!! Can I get it?? Please?!”
That is all it took. I knew we had to give this Daiya New York Cheezecake a try. We love Daiya Cheddar Slices at our house. I am convinced I probably need to buy stock in the company at this point. It is the only completely dairy free cheese that we like. So when I saw this Cheezecake I had high hopes, but like with anything new, I was a little skeptical. Plus, BONUS, it’s gluten free too!
The package said to defrost it in the fridge for a couple hours. After a couple hours I unboxed it. It was a little small for the $8.99 price tag. Then again, dairy free gluten free isn’t always cheap. This cheesecake has about 4 slices. You can get more if you cut them small.
The texture was good. In fact, it smells like a typical cheesecake. I sliced it and stole a bite myself before I gave it to her. I was actually shocked at how good it was. It has a slight coconut taste but other than that it tastes just like a regular cheesecake. I was so excited to hand out the plates.
The moment she took a bite, she let out a sigh and said “This is the best thing ever!” There you have it! The best…thing…EVER! This is perfect for a special treat, birthday, or just because! If someone in your life is gluten free, dairy free, or vegan this Daiya New York Cheezecake is a must try!
