I have been a fan of Eli’s Cheesecakes for at least 6 years. I know that because I sent several of them to my son while he was away at college. I can’t remember how I first heard about them because I’ve never been to Chicago, but I’m glad I did.
We’ve loved every gourmet cheesecake we’ve ordered from them and every one of them has arrived in perfect condition (with the exception of the one the school chose to store over a 4-day weekend instead of delivering – what a waste of an amazing cheesecake!). They arrive in perfect condition because Eli’s takes the time to package them well and in a special Styrofoam container that keeps the frozen cheesecake cold until it gets to you.
We received Eli’s seasonal flavor, Pumpkin Praline, just last week and the moment it arrived we rewrapped half for the freezer and the other half we tucked away in the refrigerator. An hour didn’t go by before I decided to sneak a little taste. That little taste turned into a whole slice and I discovered that I adore the pumpkin mousse cheesecake which is topped with the most amazing crunchy praline caramel chock full of pecans. All this was on a shortbread cookie crust that’s divine.
Eli’s Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake has light pumpkin spices and a creamy texture in a cheesecake that weighs between 3-4 pounds; but it doesn’t taste heavy at all. It’s so rich and delicious with perfectly balanced flavors. There are 14 pre-cut slices with waxed paper between each to keep the cut areas fresh so you’ll be able to serve your cake expertly.
There’s just no way to describe just how perfect this cheesecake is, as have been all of the flavors we’ve tried, you just have to try one yourself. You can visit the Eli’s Cheesecake store in Chicago, or do like I do and order Eli’s Cheesecakes online. They’re perfect for a holiday get together, as a gift, for a birthday celebration, or to send to your child at college.
The newest Eli’s Cheesecake flavors are: Cinnamon Roll Streusel Cheesecake, Hot Chocolate Cheesecake, and Ricotta Cheesecake made with Gluten Free Ingredients. They also offer a great selection of Layer Cakes, Tira Mi Su, and Tarts. Check out their website for the huge variety of flavors available. You’ll be amazed at the fabulous combinations. Not sure which your gift recipient would like? Certificates from Eli’s are the perfect gift for any occasion, and are available in any amount (hint! hint!).
