Dessert can arguably be the best meal of the day, and one of the best options for it is none other than delicious, rich, creamy cheesecake.
It’s unclear when cheesecake became a traditional option for desserts, though it has previously been traced back to Ancient Greece. While the origins aren’t known, people around the world have had fun with their cheesecakes for years. While Philadelphia Cream Cheese company still holds the record for world’s largest cheesecake (weighing at 6,900 pounds), the most expensive cheesecake ever created was by Elegant Cheesecakes of Saks Fifth Avenue. With a price tag of $325, the Pretty in Pink Cheesecake weighed eight pounds, was shaped like a stack of gift boxes, and consisted of edible chocolate wrapping, chocolate cheesecake, vanilla crunch and chocolate butter cream.
Regardless of the dessert’s history, there’s no denying that what it has become today is a fantastic dish worthy of salivating over. Now, cheesecake fans everywhere can enjoy and celebrate for National Cheesecake Day on July 30. Several places, bakeries and restaurants will be offering deals and freebies for those who adore the dessert to take full advantage of.
