Trees Organic is no stranger to me, as I often schedule coffee meet at the centrally-located Granville store. I have also bought its cheesecakes for birthdays before, a bit pricey but they are very good. So when I heard that they are running a promo on National Cheesecake Day on July 30, I jumped on the opportunity to learn more about it.
On Wednesday, July 30, and that day only, all Trees Organic store will be selling their cheesecakes at half price. That means you can get a slice of their cheesecake at the very affordable price of $3.5-$3.75 or a whole cheesecake starting at $10 each.
Talking to the Director of Operations, Chris, I learned that they make their cheesecakes in-house at the Kits location then ship to all other stores. The process takes about 2 days from start to ready-to-serve, so the bakers probably have been quite busy getting ready for National Cheesecake Day, and if they run out, they are out!
In addition to the regular flavours, right now they are featuring the Mango Splash. Not only does it have mango flavour but it also has real mango pieces, I mean big chunks of mango inside the cheesecake. I was lucky enough to get a taste and it was light, creamy, not too sweet and definitely had the tropical flavours that remind you of summer.
I also got to try its new fruit smoothie. They use all natural ingredients, using fruit such as banana and white grapes to add sweetness instead of sugar. It has 4 servings of your daily fruit intake. The Mango Smoothie was very refreshing. Mango flavour was prominent and you can’t really taste the banana or white grapes. And because they didn’t use a lot of banana so it wasn’t thick like most other smoothies. A thirst-quenching drink for the summer!
Cheesecakes at Trees Organic are definitely a great dessert option and I would recommend taking advantage of the half price deal on July 30. And while you are at it, grab a smoothie or their coffee. They roast their beans daily so coffee tastes fresh and without the burnt taste.
