Trader Joe's Fans Are Freaking Out About Its New Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake

If you're looking for something fancy to serve after Easter dinner or just feel like treating yourself to an extra special sweet this week, then look no further than your nearest Trader Joe's. The popular grocery store is now selling a frozen Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake that is as decadent as it is delightful to look at, and it's a steal at just $7.99 (via Instagram). A similar style cheesecake from Costco will set you back $12.99, per Delish

The pretty pink strawberry swirls complement the sweet and creamy cheesecake, coming together to make a dessert that is to die for. Instagram user @traderjoeslist just couldn't keep all this sweetness to themselves, posting online, "NEW STRAWBERRY SWIRL CHEESECAKE...My mouth is watering just typing this. Cheesecake is arguably one of the best cakes made and add strawberries to it, omg I am in heaven! Looks like I'll be cheesecaking in my near future." Their followers were quick to respond with their own excitement over the product, writing, "Yesss this sounds amazing" and "omg this looks so good!"

The Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake is tasty, but high in calories and sugar

However, some shoppers were more than a little taken aback by the amount of sugar and calories in each serving. An Instagram user wrote, "oh dang, 450 calories a serving???" Another joked, "Seeing these desserts and finally seeing all the sugars in them hurts my heart lol." While it is certainly an indulgence, many shoppers felt that the delicious flavor was worth it, with one commenting, "Yep. The one I ate on Sat was like 1,200 calories and I enjoyed every single bite."

Each serving of the cheesecake contains not just 450 calories, but also 36 grams of sugar, 55 grams of carbs, and 25 grams of fat (via Instagram). So, Trader Joe's shoppers who are trying to eat healthy and be mindful of their calories and sugar intake, might want to skip this decadent treat. However, if you want to treat yourself to an extra special dessert, then it seems you won't be disappointed with this rich and delicious strawberry swirl cheesecake.
