I was recently sent a 6-pack sampler of Decadence Gourmet “Cheesecakes in a Jar”, to sample and provide an honest review.  The sampler included the following flavors:

El Diablo Spicy Cheesecake


Product Description:

Our newest Savory Cheesecake takes Ghost Peppers, Habanero Peppers & Jalapeño Peppers and combines them with Pepper Jack Cheese, Red Onions, Sriracha Sauce, Herbs and Spices and tops that with an Ancho/Chipotle Pesto! Not for the timid!!

(At the tastings we do around the area, we serve with Lime Tortilla Chips instead of unsalted crackers or Pita Points.)

Chocolate Chai


Product Description:

A Great Flavor Combination, Chocolate and Chai Spice! We start with a our own Chocolate Pecan Biscotti Crumb crust with just a hint of cinnamon, then build a Chocolate Cheesecake on top of that with a li'l bit of our own Chai Spice blend, topping it off with a Dark Chocolate Ganache with a li'l more of our Chai Spice, and finish it off with a zesting of Semi-sweet Chocolate! Ummmmmm!!

German Chocolate


Product Description:

It's hard to eat just one of our luscious German Chocolate Cheesecake in a Jar desserts:

Our house-made Chocolate Pecan Biscotti Crumb Crust with Coconut Oil and Coconut Liquor underlies a Sour Cream / Cream Cheese Cheesecake with a semi-sweet Chocolate Glaze on the sides pressed with sliced almonds and topped with a Shredded Coconut/Brown Sugar/Pecan ganache and finished off with a tossing of toasted coconut.



Product Description:

We will our homemade Chocolate Pecan Biscotti Kahlua® Crumb Crust with a rich Mascarpone/Cream Cheese/Kahlua® cheesecake, then top it with a Mascarpone/Kahlua® glaze infused with powdered Espresso and powdered Ladyfingers. Finalmente, we drizzle grated semi-sweet chocolate for the creme de la creme.



Product Description:

Our tribute to the First Lady of Southern Cooking! We start with our Almond Biscotti, add a little buttah and a little maple syrup for the crust foundation. We then make a pecan pie mixture and pour that on top of the crust and let it cool just a scooch. Next we build a slightly bourbon-infused cheesecake on top of that and bake. Once this comes out of the oven, we cool it just a scooch more and then add a Maple Glaze with just a tad more bourbon and top the whole creation off with toasted chopped pecans! Just a tad decadent, ya think?

Irish Dream


Product Description:

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day... our newest Cheesecakes in a Jar® creation..

The Irish Dream!

Imagine the taste of White Chocolate combined with Irish Cream liquor, baked in a cheesecake which sits on our own Chocolate Pecan Biscotti Crumb Crust!

And if that is not enough, we top it off with a semi-sweet Chocolate Ganache, with just a little more Irish Liquor!

Feeling Irish yet?

Out of the six flavors I sampled, I have to say to favorite was the Tiramisu, with Savannah following in close second.  This doesn’t mean that the other flavors weren’t as good, because they were.  But, there was something about the Chocolate Pecan Biscotti Kahlua® Crumb Crust, topped with a rich Mascarpone and Cream Cheese filling that made my taste buds dance.  I warmed up the jar briefly before eating and loved how the cheeses melted into the crunchy crust. I couldn’t help but smile after each spoonful! 

And, at only 4 oz., each of these mini cheesecake desserts are perfect for an after dinner dessert, as well as late night snack.  My husband and I found ourselves cracking open a few jars while on overnight baby duty.  It provided a great way to unwind after a late-night feeding, while providing great conversation on how delectable the flavors were.  Each flavor offered a nice creamy cheesecake flavor, layered with tasty add-ins to create fun flavors.

In addition to the above flavors I sampled, Decadence Gourmet offers a total of 22 varieties, with 18 dessert cheesecake flavors, including two gluten-free, and four Savory Appetizer cheesecake flavors, supplemented by their seasonal flavors.  So, you are bound to find a flavor sampling that will satisfy your sweet tooth.  And, with the holidays right around the corner, why not consider ordering a 6-pack to serve as part of your dessert offering.  Or, for a gift idea, consider sending a family member a subscription to the Cheesecake of the Month Club.
