Cheesecake is one of our all-time favorite desserts. If you tuned into My Diet is Better Than Yours on ABC, you probably watched Kurt and Abel enjoy our Ultimate Cheesecake drizzled in chocolate for the Wild dessert party.
It was a huge hit—and there’s no question why… Cheesecake is rich, creamy and incredibly satisfying.
No need to deprive yourself of the sweet things in life. #NationalCheesecakeDay #TheWildDiet Click To Tweet
