Seriously, are my glasses on right? Did that cheesecake have 4 digits in it's calorie count? The strict California laws now require Cheesecake factory to label the name of the cheesecake and the calorie count.
"Ignorance is DEFINITELY bliss"
Of course, eating at a place called the CHEESECAKE factory is not healthy nor even normal but I’m still shocked, so shocked I don’t intend to eat ANY cheesecake. Ever.
The newly promoted Red Velvet Cheesecake (ironically .25 for each slice sold is donated to Feed America) is a whopping 1556 calories!! The bakery worker came around to recommend his favorite and was shocked himself! He said, “Whoa, this one is my favorite.” Why, Oh why?!?” “People don’t look at the calories or you will walk yourself back downstairs”
I understand any junk is empty and high in calories as I’ve eaten plenty of both. I’m in shock at how many calories can fit into one slice of cheesecake.
Notes: Yes, these are all my pictures of past cheesecake factory visits and yes, I’ve had some of all.
