National Grandparents Day is right around the corner on September 11th. Mark your calendars and check out Gourmet Gift Baskets for the perfect gift for your favorite Grandma and/or Grandpa!

Gourmet Gift Baskets has a ton of things to choose from including the Grandparents Day Gift Basket, the Wine Lovers Gift Basket for Grandparents and 25 varieties of Cheesecakes, no matter what their taste is.

I was offered to chance to try one of their cheesecakes and let me tell you that choosing a flavor was so difficult. They all sounded and looked so good! Flavors such as Banana Cream, New York, Pumpkin, Cherry Almond and the list goes on. I finally decided on the New York Strawberry Topped Cheesecake.

Cheesecake is one of my most favorite dessert type items and I thought the New York Strawberry Topped would be a good choice. It was sent 2 day via UPS with dry ice. It arrived with no dry ice left in the box but the cheesecake was still frozen.

Upon Arrival - Still Frozen
I put it in the refrigerator upon arrival so it could thaw before my daughter and I dug in! The next day, we pulled it out of the refrigerator and it was perfectly thawed and ready to eat.

Thawed and ready to eat!


Dessert is Served!

We each got our piece on our plates and could not wait to eat it. The cheesecake itself is rich, dense and creamy. It's sweet but not sickening sweet. Just enough to satisfy. The strawberries on the top add another layer of delicious flavor to the New York cheesecake. The strawberries also add more sweetness to the cheesecake but nothing over the top sickening.  A little piece is plenty and is filling.

I think a cheesecake for National Grandparents Day would make an amazing gift. A super yummy treat for Grandma and/or Grandpa to let them know you are thinking about them on their day.

If cheesecake isn't something they would enjoy, Gourmet Gift Baskets has many more ideas on their website. You are sure to find something that fits the bill.
