Pumpkin pie is probably my favorite autumn dessert. When October rolls around, it’s always the first fall food I want to make. When I saw Aldi was selling the Belmont Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cheesecake, I thought it looked similar to a pumpkin pie, so I wanted to try it. The package describes it as “creamy pumpkin spice whipped cheesecake, topped with pumpkin spice sauce and whipped crème in a cookie crumb crust.”
The Belmont Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cheesecake is an Aldi Find, so you can only find it in stores for a limited time. Each store gets one shipment, and once it sells out, it’s gone until next year. Aldi doesn’t offer online ordering if a product is not in stock at your local store.
The pumpkin spice cheesecake is a product of Germany and cost $5.99 at the time of purchase. It was sold in a mixed case in the Aldi Find freezer aisle alongside the Belmont Caramel Apple Whipped Cheesecake.
The serving instructions on the back of the box say to keep the cheesecake frozen until you’re ready to serve it. To thaw the whole cheesecake, remove it from the carton and thaw it in the refrigerator for approximately 2 ½-3 hours (or thaw at room temperature 1 ½-2 hours).
The box also gives directions for thawing one slice: cut the frozen cheesecake using a warm, wet knife. Thaw the slice in the refrigerator for 45-60 minutes. Reminder: freezers and refrigerators may vary, so adjustments to time may be required.
The box also recommends covering any unused portions. If frozen, return to the freezer. If defrosted, return to the refrigerator for up to three days. Do not refreeze and do not microwave.
If you’re looking out for allergens, this contains milk, wheat, and soy. It may contain tree nuts and egg.
This also has bovine gelatin. In addition, it has some processed ingredients such as glucose-fructose syrup, maltodextrin, natural flavor, and soy lecithins.
There are eight servings per box. One serving has 290 calories, 14 grams of total fat (17% DV), 8 grams of saturated fat (42% DV), 135 milligrams of sodium (6% DV), 39 grams of total carbohydrates (14% DV), 29 grams of total sugars, and 23 grams of added sugars (46% DV).
As for my personal opinion on this, some parts of it weren’t what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be thicker, like most pumpkin pies, but it was actually fairly thin, which made it a little messier because it didn’t hold together as well when sliced. The taste was good for the cheesecake and whipped cream, but I thought the gel-like pumpkin spice sauce that covers the top of the cake was a little weird, and it was almost too spiced for me.
I liked the Belmont Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cheesecake, and I would buy it again. The crust, cheesecake, and whipped cream parts are good. The only thing I would really change would be the pumpkin spice sauce on the top, which was a little strange.
