Philadelphia Cheese cake in a tub

I just tried the new ready to eat Cheesecake in a Tub!!!
OH My It is so baddddddddd I could of eaten the whole tub.
Opened it up and tasted , It didn't make back to the fridge while i was putting my groceries away. out came the grahm crackers and began dipping them into it and then I thought hmm wonder how it would be after i dipped the crackers into in put a spoonful of rasberry jam on it. I have Died and gone to heaven and no baking or dishes. But if i keep this up I am going to have to join a gym.

I do see alot of possibiltys for it - Quick appetisers,
Snacks - grahm cracker sandwich - spread and the jelly.
quick dessert - a pound cake sliced into thirds and spread it with the cheescake and then pie filling of choice.

What can I say -- try it YUMMY

I totally agree, letscook!
I sent away for a coupon a couple months back and so I got to try it for free (!)
Besides the regular, here's one my teenager thought up:
in a tall thin glass, layer the following:
philly
oreo cookie crumbles
a mix of philly + hershey's syrup (makes chocolate cheesecake flavor)
oreo crumbles
philly
top with whipped cream and a tiny bit of hershey's syrup

I've seen it advertised on TV, and think Corey 123 mentioned the product not long ago. The ad shows spreading the filling in a pie crust and refrigerating for an instant cheesecake. I will have to live vicariously through you, cuz I'm too skeered to keep it in the house An idea, is to pipe it into hulled straberries. Dare I ask, what the fat & sugar content is?

I love that stuff! I've got one that I added a little key lime extract(RC Fine foods) to, it is delish! Great when you just want a bite of something, but one bite hardly ever does it.

Also a great stuffing for hulled strawberries.

you can make your own quite easily, and with much less fat to boot.

sweeten some yoghurt to taste, flavor with lemon or vanilla, and set it with some gelatin. you can do the cookie crust thing or not. if you don't need to bake the cookie crust, you can pour it directly into tupperware and let it set.

I recently started a thread on this product, and at the time, no one has tried it. Glad to hear that YOU like it!

I ACUALLY DID buy a tub of it along with a Nabisco Vanilla Wafer crust, but I have not tried it yet. It's still sealed up in the tub.

You can virtually wait up until the last minute to prepare this because there is no mixing, baking or a multitude of dirty bowls to have to clean!

This is the lazy quick & easy perfect way out for those who don't want to go through the hassle of making a regular cheescake and baking it, which I plan to do sometime in the spring just for kicks and giggles.

vanilla wafers and the put a little of the filling on and then a dap of rasberry jelly -- love as a snack instead of a hand full of chips. but probably has more calories then the chips.

Sounds like you're about to eat that last bit in the tub. It CAN be addictive once you've tasted it!

A few more ideas - re the strawberries, here is a recipe I have made with cream cheese or mascarpone for appys. You could give it a try using the tubbed cheesecake filling. Wash & hull the strawberries, make about 3 cuts thru the top, but not through the berry (like a flower petal) & fill:

RECIPE for Strawberry Blossoms, Dessert or Appetizer

If you do a search here, a recipe that's impressive & easy is Cheesecake in a martini glass.

Another idea/recipe, cheesecake lollipops. If I didn't post the recipe, send up a flare, & I would be happy to share.

Yet another idea, based on tiramisu bon bons - you could use a melon baller and scoop the cheesecake filling into balls & freeze. Drizzle with melted chocolate & freeze again.
