Frü Sicilian Lemon Cheesecake
Advantages: Great taste
Normally I’m not too bothered about the packaging as long as it protects the product after all it will end up in either the recycle bin or the dustbin but with this product it does need a mention. In each box you get two cheesecakes and each one is contained in a small glass jar with a plastic lid. From an aesthetic viewpoint this is a nice touch and indeed means you could probably get away with serving them at a diner party straight from the box but I cannot help but feel that this presentation over function does add to the cost of the product.
Cost is my only real criticism of this product hence the mention.
Taste Texture and Presentation
My God this product tastes good; I would gladly sell one of the ankle biters for a years supply and liposuction to extract all the fat I would consume.
It is supposed to be made with Sicilian lemons however wherever they are from they certainly give the cheesecake a lovely zingy taste and you can really taste the combination of lemons alongside the cream cheese.
From a presentation viewpoint this is pretty basic looking with a single layer of cheesecake sitting on top of a biscuit base. The top of the cheesecake has a light sprinkling of biscuit as well however this is just for effect and adds nothing to the taste of the product.
The previous product I reviewed I moaned about the fact that the biscuit base was too thin and tasteless however this is not the case with the lemon cheesecake which has a slightly more substantial biscuit base which is slightly moist from the lemon juice in the product and this also gives it a lovely fresh flavour.
The cheesecake itself is absolutely delicious, it has a creamy yet slightly crumbly texture and the combination of the sharp lemon flavour and the smooth rich taste of the cream cheese just makes this one of life indulgencies that should not be missed. To give it an extra lemon taste there are very thin strands of lemon curd within the layer of cheesecake.
At first I thought I would be tempted to eat both at once however once I started eating the cheesecake I realised this would not be the case as it was very rich in taste and certainly as a dessert after my evening meal there was no desire to eat a second once I had finished.
One explanation for why these are small yet filling can be found in the fact that each pot has a rather large 26 grams of fat in them and 353 calories but then what did you expect this is all about indulgence not weight watchers and it is less fattening that the chocolate and vanilla cheesecake. The product is suitable for vegetarians and may contain traces of nuts and definitely does contain wheat, milk, eggs and soya for those with any intolerance.
My only reason for not giving this product five stars is the cost which for the amount you get is on the expensive side but it does pretty work out cheaper than buying cheesecake in a restaurant and it tastes a whole lot better than most other supermarket lemon cheesecakes. The packaging means that you could probably get away with serving them at a dinner party and they go equally well with an afternoon cup of coffee.
If you do buy this product make sure you recycle the pots however in my case they were immediately appropriated by my daughter to use to grow crystals in.
