Belmont Whipped Cheesecake

Last Updated on October 10, 2022

Aldi is an underrated grocery store to buy desserts at. Whether you need large cartons of cream puffs and eclairs for a party, some cookies for the kids, baked goods to share at the office, or ice cream to enjoy on a night in, Aldi does not lack in the dessert department. Their desserts are as good as name brands and cost a fraction of the price.

The discount grocery store occasionally surprises me with new selections in the dessert aisles, and recently I spotted two novel options in the freezer section. One was a chocolate crème pie, and the other was a whipped cheesecake. I bought one of each to try at home. Here, I’m offering a look at the whipped cheesecake.

Belmont Whipped Cheesecake

Belmont Whipped Cheesecake cost $5.99 for a 24-ounce package at the time of publication. The package describes this as “a decadent creamy whipped cheesecake in a cookie crumb crust.” It’s a product of Germany.

This is a seasonal item at Aldi, which means it’s in stores for longer than an Aldi Find, but it’s not sold all year. I found this at Aldi at the start of the fall/holiday season. I don’t know for certain, but it appears this is a dessert Aldi is stocking for the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s season.

Primary ingredients include sour cream, cream, wheat flour, sugar, vegetable shortening, invert sugar, brown sugar, and cream cheese. If you’re watching out for allergens, this contains milk and wheat. It may contain tree nuts, soy, and egg. It also contains bovine gelatin.

Unboxed cheesecake just out of the freezer.

I thawed the cheesecake in the refrigerator. It gets points for looks, with pretty florets piped onto the top. Once thawed, it’s extremely easy to slice. It has a solid cookie crust, and the whipped cheesecake is very soft with a light, fluffy consistency not all that different from Cool Whip, but with more air whipped into it and with a cheesecake flavor.

Thawed cheesecake ready to enjoy.

This is much less dense than traditional cheesecake has a mild sweet flavor. It’s good on its own, but it could also be nice served with fresh fruit such as strawberries or raspberries. The cookie crumb crust helps to give it some structure and offers a nice solid contrast to the soft filling. This did not last long in my house. It’s probably not a coincidence that Aldi introduced this cheesecake just before the holidays. It’s an easy to dessert to thaw and serve at a party or family gathering, or just because.

The Verdict:

Belmont Whipped Cheesecake features creamy, airy cheesecake with a light consistency not all that different from Cool Whip, all nestled inside a cookie crumb crust. It’s sold frozen, and serving it is as simple as thawing it in the fridge for a few hours. It’s a good option any time you need an easy dessert.

  1. Just enough “there” to satisfy without some of the guilt and heaviness of the real thing, especially after a meal. A favorite at our house is pumpkin chiffon pie, lighter and less intense than the original, and uses half the pumpkin as the heavier regular pie.

  2. This is a favorite at our house. The ingredients that are most concerning is the palm oil,listed twice. Dextrose, glucose syrup,”natural” which means the opposite. That being said it is a dessert w/ better ingredients than many name brands in the frozen isle.Palm oil is not sold in stores as it is so cheap. We tried the Whipped Cheesecake pie last Christmas & will buy this year again.

  3. Bovine gelatine is also something that vegetarians do not eat as it comes from the skins and hoofs of cows. So this is not suitable for vegetarians that eat dairy. Thanks for the heads up – we’ll have to start reading Aldi labels more carefully.

  4. We bought the belmont whipped pumpkin spice cheese cake and found it to be nothing like real cheese cake was disappointed. My wife did buy it, I guess the clue she should have read whipped. It was way to like eating whipped cream.

  5. Absolutely loved this! My question is for anyone who liked it….Do you have a Recipe that makes a similar cheesecake?
