The Best Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake Flavors Might Surprise You

While The Cheesecake Factory is likely the last place you should go for a somewhat healthy meal, it is the perfect place for an incredibly indulgent slice of cheesecake. Naturally, the chain has tons of delicious cheesecake flavors, from fruity and tart to sweet and ultra chocolatey. Though the same slice won't satisfy all of the chain's customers, a recent poll conducted by Mashed revealed there is one flavor that stands above the rest.

Mashed had 645 people respond to the question of which cheesecake flavor is the Cheesecake Factory's best. The options included key lime, Reese's peanut butter chocolate, Godiva chocolate, tiramisu, white chocolate raspberry truffle, chocolate tuxedo and lemon raspberry cream. The options reflected a wide range of flavor combinations, and those at the bottom of the poll's rankings were actually quite close.

As it turns out, both lemon raspberry cream and key lime ended up at the bottom of the list. Lemon raspberry cream was in the very last place with just 10.39% of the vote, though key lime was a close second with just 10.85% of the vote. That's only a fraction of a percentage point's difference! That means just 67 people voted for lemon raspberry cream while 70 chose key lime.

This is actually the most popular cheesecake flavor

The next two cheesecake flavors to make the lower end of the list in Mashed's survey were also a near tie. Chocolate tuxedo received 11.32% of the vote while tiramisu fell just shorter, with 11.01% of the vote. That's just 71 votes for tiramisu and 73 votes for chocolate tuxedo. Both flavors were just a few votes away from being at the very bottom of the poll.

The top three favorite Cheesecake Factory cheesecake flavors were Reese's peanut butter chocolate, white chocolate raspberry truffle, and Godiva chocolate. However, you might be surprised that the ultra-popular candy brand's cheesecake didn't end up on top. Reese's peanut butter chocolate cheesecake placed third, with just 14.11% of the vote from 91 people. Godiva chocolate cheesecake took another chunk of the votes with 20.93% of the votes from 135 people. 

Ultimately, white chocolate raspberry truffle was actually the flavor of cheesecake people liked most. It received a close 21.40% of the vote from 138 people. Clearly, choosing a favorite flavor of cheesecake divides more people than it unifies even if there was a winner of the Mashed poll.
