It turns out that Alan enjoys rummaging through the supermarket bargain bins just as much as I do! Bargain binning is one way to place oneself on the road to home ownership, amongst collecting furniture from hard rubbish days and making your own yogurt. At Woolworths we found some discounted cheesecakes in the bargain bin freezer section and decided to do a CHEESECAKE PLAY OFF. After all, the cheesecakes were only $1.20 each and $2.40 in total is a small price to pay for fun!
The great thing about this particular Woolworths visit was that we found two bargain bin refrigerator sections in the store! Double the bargains! Double the fun! Double the stinginess! I am excited! Let's start:)
OMG lemon cheesecake
This cheesecake made me want to say 'OMG Habib'. I am not sure if that is a positive or a negative
You can see (from the very first photo) that packaged cheesecakes are not the most visually appealing creations on the planet. We looked at this lemon cheesecake and had our doubts as it reminded us of aeroplane food in the little square container.
No points for attractiveness from either of us, but we found the taste to be quite nice. The topping tasted like lemon, the cheese layer tasted like cheesecake and also had hints of lemon throughout and the biscuits were not soggy as I was expecting them to be.
Kenilworth Country Food dessert lime cheesecake
For me, this lime cheesecake looks more attractive from the outside than the lemon cheesecake and does not give me the slightest urge to repeat catch phrases. I suppose this cheesecake looks more attractive than the OMG lemon cheesecake as the packaging contains gold coloured areas and you can see the different layers of the cheesecake without having to first unwrap it from a cardboard box. Extra points for the picture of the little cow on the label.
Taste-wise, the lime topping was fine, but I did not find the cheese layer very appealing. For me it did not seem to have much flavour at all, and the same story for the biscuit layer as well.
Alan put his spoon into the cheese layer and realised he could pick the whole cup off the table
We also did not like the fact that to eat it and taste all layers at once, you have to push your spoon right into the container, only to get a lot of cheese and a little amount of biscuit. Perhaps a flatter container would work better
We choose the OMG lemon cheesecake.
