You know what restaurant I can’t stand? The Cheesecake Factory. There’s usually a long wait for a table–it’s such a VIP spot, you know–so by the time I’m finally seated, I’m really hungry and I inhale the entire basket of complementary bread. Then, after I’ve eaten all of my mediocre fettuccine alfredo, the waitress inevitably comes by the table and asks, “Did you save room for cheesecake?” Well no I didn’t “save room,” but it would kind of be a waste of time to come to The Cheesecake Factory and not get cheesecake, wouldn’t it? Now, please hand me the dessert menu.
Thanks to Burger King, I might never have to step foot in a Cheesecake Factory again. Burger King has added two brand new desserts to its menu, Oreo Cookie Cheesecake and New York Cheesecake. I picked up the Oreo one because duh, Oreos.
Unfortunately, there’s not quite enough of a true Oreo taste to Burger King Oreo Cookie Cheesecake. The Oreo cookie crust and crushed Oreos on top give the cheesecake a strong cocoa taste, but the drizzled icing does little to simulate the sweetness of Oreo creme. The cheesecake itself has a good cream cheese-like tang, but the entire slice has nearly the same soft texture, which is a little off-putting. Burger King Oreo Cookie Cheesecake isn’t going to be my new go-to dessert, but it’s a nice option to have when I need a break from The Cheesecake Factory.
