It is no secret that I love all Cakes, Desserts and anything remotely sweet but I do have my favourites.. Cheesecake being one! Homemade is of course best but when you see NEW Neapolitan Cheesecake in Asda, you can't exactly refuse.. Who doesn't love that childhood classic ice cream trio!?
I picked up the 550g Cheesecake in the Fresh Dessert section for £2.75 - I tried to choose the one with the best sprinkles as a lot of them had bled into the top and consequently, were white in colour which didn't look all that attractive!
As instructed, I ran a knife around the edge of the Cheesecake which was sat upon a piece of cardboard within a nifty plastic outer and popped the thing out with ease - I did half expect it to break but thankfully not.
Vanilla and strawberry flavour cheesecakes on a biscuit base topped with chocolate sauce and edible decorations.
We are on a bit of an angle for today's picture - Needs must when it comes to not getting a blue hue! Extremely sweet smelling, I was excited for the impending Neapolitan delight to hit.. Boy, was I wrong. The aforementioned signature flavour did deliver on first bite but was then completely ruined by the overpowering and artificial strawberry layer which was so potent and sweet, it almost tasted bitter! Given that nothing else was identifiable, I tried both the vanilla and base seperately and together, were pleasant enough in being sweet and biscuity but fairly generic with no Cheesecake tang. As for the chocolate on top.. The texture was most odd - Jelly like and bizarrely flappy! Things didn't improve any in taste with a bland, lack lustre flavour which I am pretty sure, you wouldn't know was meant to be chocolate! Rubbish!
Overall.. This NEW Neapolitan Cheesecake is a catastrophic let down! I am not sure how Asda have managed it but it has to be one of the worst Desserts, I have ever had. Even by removing the ghastly strawberry layer, it is still ridiculously cloying with the joy of remnant artificial, bitter tones. Please, whatever you do, don't be lured in by the promise of Neapolitan.. You may just end up rueing the day. It's a 0 out of 5 from me!
