We are going to switch things up a bit today. Usually as this is the last posting day of August, I would be featuring my AGFL the box. However, with four days left of the month, it hasn’t yet arrived. Thankfully I had this Friday’s post ready and will be switching them around.
Back in July I think it was I shared that my local IGA had just gotten in a large range of the Gluten Free Gourmet cheesecakes. These can be found in the frozen section and Brody and couldn’t help but try them both defrosted and frozen. They are a bit pricey at around $8.99 each. Brody and I halve them and they work well for dessert.
Salted Caramel Cheesecake
Our favourite of the four cheesecakes was definitely the Salted Caramel. The two layers work really well together. We enjoyed this one defrosted. It was rich and creamy but definitely didn’t have that saltiness of other salted caramels I’ve tried. This is one I would buy again, however I also have that delicious salted caramel cheesecake recipe that I made for Christmas a few years ago.
The wildberry cheesecake was the first we tried frozen. It was very refreshing and easy to eat despite being frozen. The crumb does fall apart easily but tastes really good with the creamy cheesecake. The top has a layer of wild berry jam and pieces. The topping is a little tart which beautifully contrasts the other flavours. The cheesecake definitely didn’t last very long.
While it was good, I don’t think i’d buy another one. Mostly because I can whip up something just a good at home.
The most refreshing of the bunch was definitely the lemon cheesecake. We defrosted this one and as you can see in the photos the lemon curd topping started to shift. The lemon had a lovely tang that plays in your mouth. The crumb is the same as all the cheesecakes and it melts in your mouth. Brody definitely enjoyed this one the most I think.
The final cheesecake to try was the passionfruit cheesecake. This was all mine, Brody dislikes passionfruit flavour. Just like the lemon and wildberry, the cheesecake is topped with a layer of fruit curd. Once again I tried this one frozen and it was a delicious dessert. A good way to end the night when you are tired. My favourite thing about passionfruit is biting into the crunchy seeds. This is the second cheesecake that I would most likely buy again.
The gluten free gourmet brand doesn’t just do cheesecakes either. They have a direct factory outlet in Seaford Melbourne for those who live nearby and have stockists around the country. I’ll be heading down to try out their other products and do a full review of the brand in the future.
What do you think of these cheesecakes? Have you tried them? Let me know in the comments below.
