Earth Cafe Cheesecake Review and Giveaway



I have never been a fan of cheesecake until recently.  I made my own once and thought it was delicious.  I was able to monitor what was put into it and I knew that it didn't have any preservatives or refined sugar in it.  That pumpkin cheesecake was my rite of passage......


Recently I was sent some ahhhhmazing vegan, gluten-free cheesecake from Earth Cafe.  I know what you are thinking.  If it is vegan it isn't really cheesecake is it?  Well, technically no, but it has the mouth-feel of cheesecake and the flavor of heaven.  I am NOT kidding folks!  Lets discuss what cheesecake is and why we like it.....


Sweet, creamy, decadent, rich and satisfying.  Those are definitely adjectives used to describe luscious cheesecake.  Earth Cafe cheesecakes have all of these any qualities and many more.  As you all know, I am a greenie through and through.  I try to challenge myself with new and exciting ways to green up different aspects of my life.  I find eating more vegetarian/vegan meals is an excellent way to help green up your lifestyle.  For people like me who adore perch, lobster and rare meat, I could never do it full time but I do it often.  I like tofu stir fry and garden burgers (homemade of course!)


I was sent an array of cheesecake slices to try and I have to tell you, "Who's your Daddy" is my favorite!!  I have never met carob that I liked until now!  Look at the ingredients and see for yourself how incredibly awesome this cheesecake is!






































So besides being incredibly tasty its also good for you!  What a concept!  Earth Cafe is clearly a company that cares and I don't say that very often.  I dropped by their Facebook page and saw a little secret that there will be a 40% off coupon in their May newsletter so I signed up!  You best be believing that I will order me up a sampler cheesecake with that amazing discount.  Their single flavor pies retail for $34.99 which I think is not only a GREAT price but you get 8 slices (like $4.37 per slice or $2.18 per serving!)  That is incredible!!


My super generous friends over at Earth Cafe want to give you the chance to win your favorite flavor Cheesecake!  This will make your Mother's Day super happy to know you are a winner....


Please head over to Earth Cafe and tell me which Cheesecake you will choose if you win!  I also want you to tell me something interesting that you found on their site


Make sure you answer the two-fold question before you get extra entries.....

**I was sent a few slices of cheesecake for review.  The opinions are my 100% own.  I was not obligated to write a positive review**

This cheescake looks wonderful. I would have a hard time choosing one, but I would have to pick "Who's you Daddy". And, all of their Cheesecakets are Gluten free (but looking at the ingredients they do appear to contain soy).

I'd choose the Cherry Dream Cheesecake. Oh, yes, I would. And I think that Life is Sweet Potato Pie looks great, too. Interesting to me is the fact that you can even have cheesecake without cheese. Whoddathunkit?

I would choose the Sampler Cheesecake for Earth Cafe so I can taste several varieties! I learned that these cheesecakes are living (raw), vegan, wheat/gluten free, cholesterol free. That would suit me just fine. We get enough hidden gluten in our foods as it is.

Oh-em-gee - How to choose? I think I'd like the Banana Cream Cheesecake. Or maybe the Who's Your Daddy. Blueberry Thrill sounds delish too. You know what? I think I'd get the Sampler. Just to be on the safe side! :)

Milaxx said...

I'd pick Who's Your daddy. I learned that these cheesecakes are raw.

@2doxies2 said...

I would choose the Rockin' Raspberry or the Strawberry Fields Forever.

@2doxies2 said...

My sister's a vegan (and the main reason why I'm entering to win - to surprise her) so I was already aware that the cakes are vegan, raw, gf-free, etc. I would have to say the new thing I learned is that they will keep in the freezer for several months.

Our local Whole Foods stores don't sell Earth Cafe products so, before I pay to have cakes shipped to my sister for special occasions, I would love the opportunity to try one first.

The Cherry Dream or Coconut Carob would probably be my choice if I'm picked, but they all sound delicious. Thanks for the chance! And I learned that these cakes are wheat and gluten free.

The Sampler Cheesecake sounds like a great way to try different flavors at once! They mention you can slightly warm it in a dehydrator, so I learned that it would still be considered raw that way.
