One of my favorite backup desserts – when there are no fudgy chocolate brownies around – is cheesecake. So, July 30 is a big day for me because it’s National Cheesecake Day!
If you’re ready to celebrate National Cheesecake Day, Fairytale Brownies has the perfect gourmet gift for you. Our Cheesecake Swirl Fairytale Bar is fine cake flour, organic vanilla extract, pure creamery butter and a swirl of sweetened cream cheese.
In honor of National Cheesecake Day and courtesy of Wikipedia, here are four fun facts about cheesecake:
- Cheesecake dates back at least to ancient Rome. An even older form of cheesecake may have been popular in ancient Greece.
- The cheesecake Americans know and love came about after New Yorker William Lawrence invented cream cheese in 1872.
- There are two main types of cheesecake in America. Philadelphia cheesecake is lighter in texture and richer in flavor than New York cheesecake.
- While cream cheese is the base for cheesecakes in the U.S., Italian cheesecakes feature ricotta and German, Dutch, and Polish cheesecakes use quark.
By the way, Cheesecake Swirl is just one of four Fairytale Bars gourmet gifts that joined our lineup of fudgy chocolate brownies and cookies last year. We also offer Chocolate Chip Blondie, Pecan Blondie, and Raspberry White Chocolate. You can try all four varieties in our Fairytale Bar Dozen.
Or, feel free to stick with the Cheesecake Swirl for now in honor of National Cheesecake Day.
