Trader Joe's Fan Are Divided On Its New Cheesecake Flavor
Trader Joe’s Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake is briefly back in stock and consists of a graham cracker crust and sweet cheesecake base but with the colorful twist of vibrant red strawberry jelly swirls for the ultimate combination of tart, sweet, and rich. While some Instagram commenters were delighted about tits return, others warned against it.
For many, the biggest issue seems to be the strawberry jelly swirls and many agreed that the red fruity ribbons had a strong artificial taste. "Terrible chemical aftertaste and sickly sweet," remarked one user, while another said it "tasted like some type of cough syrup." A third revealed they were so put off by it they returned the entire cheesecake.
However, despite the criticism, a few Trader Joe's fans had nothing but good things to say about the seasonal sweet. "My family just killed one of these and we did not regret it! Soooo good!" gushed one user. "Brought one to a bbq and it was the talk of the night very good!" added another.
