The Cheesecake Factory just debuted a brand new cheesecake named the "Celebration Cheesecake," 'cuz, you know, why the hell not?

Actually, it's their very appropriate way of commemorating National Cheesecake Day! (::whispers:: which should be every day, right?) And, according to the Cheesecake Factory, this new flavor "features layers of Original cheesecake, vanilla cake, strawberry, chocolate and vanilla mousse topped with cream cheese frosting and finished with brightly colored confetti."


Crystal tasted the cheesecake first and thought, Wow, there is a fucking lot going on in this.

Confession time: I am not a huge cake person, so I was a little disappointed to find out this cheesecake was, like, HALF actual birthday cake. (I know, I know, that’s basically the whole point of this cheesecake…) Surprisingly, the cake wasn’t nearly as sickly sweet as I thought it would be, which was a plus. And the mashup of flavors is not as crazy as it sounds, because overall this tasted pretty damn good!

Next, Pablo tried the cheesecake and thought it was gonna be a sugar tsunami.

Spoiler: It wasn't. If you know me, you know I like my cheesecake like I like my men: thick, creamy, and simply mouth-watering. This mountain of fun luckily exceeded that expectation and more. The initial bite was downright magical and had just the right amount of sweetness to it. At first, it tasted like a strawberry cheesecake, but as I delved in deeper, it took on a classic birthday cake flavor. It was so big, I couldn't finish the whole thing on my own. It could probably feed my entire group of friends (if I had friends).

Overall, we feel like this cheesecake is worth trying for yourself!

Crystal: “I’d definitely eat this cheesecake again, but only if I had at least two other people to share it with!”

Pablo: "I'm already dreaming about the next time I can go back and try it again."
