It’s been all over social media this week – Iceland’s limited edition Luxury Belgian Chocolate Easter Egg Cheesecake – with many reporting it tastes just like Cadbury Creme Eggs! Being a fan of Iceland foods in general, I had to pop one of these on my weekly shopping list to try it out.
Let’s just say, the cheesecake inside the box didn’t look quite as appealing as the picture-perfect one on the packaging, more like a scrambled egg cheesecake, but I wasn’t going to let that put me off – it was still cheesecake after all. Once cut into, it was a plate full of gooey goodness, just how you’d expect a creme egg inspired dessert to be.
Did Iceland’s Easter cheesecake taste like Creme Eggs?
Nope. I didn’t think Iceland’s cheesecake tasted at all like Cadbury Creme Eggs. But it still tasted pretty good. At £3 it’s pretty reasonable for an Easter treat for the family and I’d probably buy it again for a special dessert.
Bear in mind, I’m pretty certain Iceland have not actually stated this is a Creme Egg inspired cheesecake – I don’t think Cadbury would let them get away with that anyway! But the media seem to have taken it upon themselves to call it ‘Creme Egg inspired’ and it appears many are stating that it tastes just like Creme Eggs. Iceland describe the cheesecake as “Baked vanilla cheesecake on a digestive biscuit base, topped with a chocolate sauce and decorated with orange and yellow white chocolate sauce, finished with dark chocolate strands.”
As delicious as the Iceland Easter Egg Cheesecake is, if you really want a Creme Egg flavoured cheesecake, the best thing you can do is to make one yourself. In true Blue Peter style, here’s one I made earlier, albeit a cheat version, made with Green’s Cheesecake Mix.
But if you don’t fancy making your own and you want something you can literally whip out of the freezer, defrost and stab a fork into, then head to Iceland!
