Junior's 10" 4-Flavor Cheesecake Sampler
I ordered this product 1 month early to secure the "Easy Pay" option with the intention of serving the cheescake for Easter. It was VERY pretty and looked just like the online picture when I opened the box on Easter. This brand was also advertised as keeping up to 6 months in the freezer. Well...once defrosted, it feel apart when I tried to slice a piece which created a gooey caked up mess. This happened each time I tried to slice another portion. My family was present and I was so embarassed because I bragged about the cheesecake being made in New York and being ordered through QVC. I put the cheesecake back in the freezer (and wrapped the box in plastic wrap as required) thinking maybe I let it defrost too much. Later this week I tried again and lessened the time I let it defrost. This time it was too frozen to eat, and when I let it sit just a little bit longer it got too soft and became gooey all over again when I tried to slice it. I paid $60 for this cheesecake and I am EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. I could have gotten a cheescake for much less from a reputable restaurant. Maybe going to Junior's in NY and trying this out in person will help me trust this brand. I have read previous reviews that have mentioned the same thing.
Nice Variety For A Party
Used this during thanks giving holiday. The cakes held very well , thought red velvet could have been creamier but the guests did not complain. The items were wrapped well
I SENT THIS T COUSIN AS BIRTHDAY CAKE
I THOUGHT I WOULD SEND TO MY COUSIN FOR HER BIRTHDAY,SHE WAS SURPRISED AND REALLY LOVES IT! YOU CANT GO WRONG WITH ANY JUNIOR PRODUCTS!
My friends for whom I'd ordered this expressed delight with these cheesecake flavors. The QVC option to bill to me but ship to someone else is wonderful as these friends are a few states away from me. Junior's has a wonderful reputation for delicious cheese cake and I felt I couldn't go wrong.....and I didn't. If you're a cheese cake lover, or need a gift for friends who enjoy superb cheese, I recommend this product. Yum!
I was so looking forward to a variety of creamy cheese cakes from Juniors. I grew up in NYC and know the brand so I was even more disappointed that the cheese cake was not creamy at all. As a matter of fact, I found each of the flavor brands to be dry and crumbly. I will not order this item ever again. Sorry.
I've had Junior's cheesecake and have given as a gift many times before and we absoolutely love it, I ordered one for a recent church lunch, and it was a big hit. Every one just raved about moist and delicious it was. I was asked by quite a few folks where did i get it. I proudly told them QVC. Great price too.
It was JUST okay.
I agree with some of the previous reviewers. My sampler was very dry and I should have asked for a refund. I also didn't like the chocolate and quite honestly I threw most of it away. It may be delicious if you buy it fresh and can eat it right away. I wouldn't order it again. It was shipped and delivered when they said it would be so that is the one plus.
I was disappointed with this cheesecake. My whole family loves cheesecake and we had seen an episode on Food Network about Juniors, so we thought we should try it. Unfortunately, we just didn't like the sponge crust or the chocolate sampler. But, QVC was great as always .... delivered on time and in great condition. If you are a Graham Cracker crust kinda person skip Juniors.
Entire family liked it
This was one of two that we ordered for the family this year. It was excellent in so far as it was fresh, creamy, tasty. I did have a concern that when we received it the dry ice was gone. It had not lingered on the porch. That concerns me for ordering more, I think if they can put a tad more of the dry ice it might be a good idea as we hadn't even ordered at a warm time of year.
The only reason I did not give it all five stars was because the chocolate was not very good at all. It was the least liked by all. It failed as a chocolate and as a cheesecake. If you want chocolate have chocolate. If you want cheesecake have Juniors.
Quality Gone Down Hill
I purchased this cheesecake years ago many times and it was always good. The one I received recently was terrible. Dry, not blended (chocolate had pieces of white), and the rasberry fell crumbled when eating it. So disappointed. Allen Rosen shame on you - you have not keep the family cheesecake quality since you have sold so many cakes.
A Great Gift
I received this sampler as a Christmas gift and I loved it. The chocolate cheesecake and the black forest cheesecake are my faves. It came packaged very well and the cheesecake was still frozen solid.
Did I get a bad batch?
I'm not sure what was wrong with the sampler that we got, the rest of the food ordered from QVC was wonderful, this was so dry it crumbled in your mouth or stuck in your throat and our guests all tossed it out, very disappointed for my only time ever on QVC.
