      Weigh Watchers Strawberry Cheesecake

      Dooyoo have finally approved my suggestion to review these so here we go with another Weight Watchers dessert.


      Packaging:

      The box is predominantly purple, as you'd expect a Weightwatchers product to be. There's a picture of the dessert on the front, along with the name & the words "now with more topping" in the top right hand corner. The back of the box contains the usual information: ingredients, nutritional information, some stuff about Weight Watchers etc along with the defrost instructions:-

      "Remove film seal. Defrost at room temperature for 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 hours

      The product is described as:- "2 creamy strawberry cheesecakes with a crumbly biscuit base, a delicious baked cheesecake layer topped with strawberries."

      There's also a picture of Weight Watchers Double Chocolate Brownies. Why not try some?!

      The box contains 2 of these desserts. The picture on the front of the box has the dessert standing on it's own. However the back of the box advises:-"For best results eat from pot"

      For those of you on the Weight watchers diet each dessert has a value of 3 points.


      The dessert:
      The dessert is "housed" in a plastic pot. Before opening the pot you can clearly see the discuit base at the bottom of the pot, the cheesecake taking up the lion's share of the space in the middle & a rather uneven layer of strawberry topping at the top. Unlike some other Weight Watchers desserts there are no "pockets" of sauce down the side.

      Taste:
      After pulling off the film lid the first thing you notice is the small strawberries nestling in a bad of strawberry sauce. This tastes very sweet, yummy & totally more-ish. The taste actually lingers on in your mouth & makes the cheesecake seem a lot less bland & nondescript than it did in the Lemon Cheesecake dessert. Either that, or they've "made some amendments" to the cheesecake for this dessert! As with the Lemon Cheesecake the biscuit base was just the right crumbly consistency & didn't taste "wet" like the bases in some of the other Weigh Watchers Desserts do.

      Price:
      At the time of writing, I paid 99p for one box of these in my local corner shop.


      Opinion:
      I'll confess here & now that, when it comes to dessert I much prefer fruit desserts to anything that's based on chocolate. So that might have a slight bearing on my opinion of the dessert, but I have to say, hand on heart, that I totally love this. The flavours & the consistencies of the base, cheesecake & topping all work well together & it doesn't actually taste as if it's a diet dessert at all. Content wise there's nothing too concerning about this dessert although one pot will provide you with around 25% of your Recommended Daily Amount of sugar. I'd happily eat this again and, as such, it jumps into first place in my "league table" of Weight Watchers desserts that I've tried so far.
