Yes, this is actual New York Style cheesecake that you can enjoy right out of the pouch! Made with rich cream cheese, brown sugar, notes of citrus, and a graham crust, each bite-sized cube will lure you back for more. The best part is that they are ready to eat NOW, no need to refrigerate. How? Because like dozens of other foods that Mountain House makes, these are freeze dried! This amazing process allows you to easily pack it in for wilderness adventures, wrap it up as a gift, hand it off as a reward, or even take them to the moon. They're easy to prepare. Simply add hot water and you'll be all set to enjoy a flavorful, filling meal no matter what.
