An entire pumpkin wouldn’t fit into the box that holds Trader Joe's Pumpkin Cheesecake, but loads of rich pumpkin flavor did. Blended, of course, into the tangy-sweet goodness of cheesecake that lies within the box, that is. Don't eat the box. That does not taste like pumpkin. Or cheesecake. It's a box.
Back to Trader Joe's Pumpkin Cheesecake. This creamy dessert is made with loads of rich, smooth cream cheese and impressive amounts of real pumpkin and seasonal, pumpkin pie spices. It makes a quick and easy dessert for a special-occasion gathering (dress it up with spooky accoutrements for Halloween), a weekend dinner party or a weeknight supper with the family. Carve it up - you're probably best sticking with slices, as jack o'lantern-style carving would leave some cheesecake lovers with significantly less to love than others - and top the slices with freshly whipped cream, ice cream, crème anglaise, caramel sauce, or nothing at all - the flavor of the Cheesecake is satisfying enough that it doesn't need adornment.
We're selling each 30 ounce Pumpkin Cheesecake for $6.99, a terrific value. You'll find it in our freezers, while Pumpkin Season lasts.
