Gü Choc and Vanilla Cheesecake

Alex: Right, the Gü Choc and Vanilla cheesecakes. These are slightly special and come in little glass ramekins. That’s right. Two in a box. Ideal if it’s you and a loved one over Christmas, or if you’re really hungry.

Joe: Are we pronouncing Gü right? Is it ‘goo’ or ‘guh’? Because it has that little umlaut…

Alex: With an umlaut though it becomes like ‘ooo’ though, doesn’t it? ‘Ooo’.

Clive: Ooo.

Harry: Ooo.

Rich: Ooo.

Joe: I don’t know. I’ve not listened to enough Heavy Metal albums to know for sure.

Clive: Anyway, each cheesecake weighs 90g and gives you 323 calories, 22.4g of fat and 19.2g of sugar. That’s less calories but more fat and sugar than the last one.

Fancy cheesecakes deserve fancy photography

Alex: How does that work?

Harry: Hopefully, very well. Though it’s almost a quarter fat.

Alex: I tell you what, it is actually quite good though. If you served it to Santa then he wouldn’t belt you over the head.

Harry: Ooo. This is chocolately. It’s a thermo-baric chocolate weapon. There’s very little cheesy middle and very little crumbly base. It’s just chocolate, through and through. I would argue that this barely constitutes a cheesecake.

Joe: That’s lovely. You can’t really taste any cheese, it’s pretty much only chocolate.

Alex: Actually, I think Harry is right. If you went to the shops after some cheesecake and you bought this then you might be disappointed. They’re not bad, but they’re not cheesecake.

Clive: Yeah, it’s mostly ganache, isn’t it? That chocolate layer on the top is ganache.

Harry: No, ganache is Dennis the Menace’s dog.

Alex: Now we get to see who’s been to the most fancy restaurants and picked up the most lingo. Clive has seen my ‘ramekins’ and raised me one ‘ganache’.

Clive: Also; we’ll see who’s read the box. That’s what that is.

Rich: Harry is tidying that cheesecake off nicely. It’s nearly all gone. We better have got some photos before.

Joe: Well, if we eat enough then it’ll just come back up on us anyway.

Alex: Yuck. Anyway, I liked that but I don’t think it’s really a cheesecake. As a dessert I’d score it 8 or 9, but as a cheesecake I’d score it a Fail.

Joe: I don’t like the ramekins. They have corners, which means you can’t get a spoon or fork in to get every last scrape out. I hate waste.

Harry: Is there a EU Directive for what determines a cheesecake? If you are really bored this Christmas, find out and let us know.
