Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Eli’s Cheesecake

St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.  ~Adrienne Cook

As spring (hopefully) approaches, so does St. Patrick’s Day. And Chicago takes St. Paddy’s Day celebrations very seriously. From dyeing the Chicago River green to the parades, it’s always a festive time to be in the Windy City. 

But St. Patrick’s Day isn’t only about what you’re drinking. It’s also about the food. And to help you get ready for a Chicago-style St. Patrick’s Day, Baked Chicago is giving away an Eli’s Cheesecake to one lucky reader.

Eli's Cheesecake - key lime pie

Key Lime Pie Cheesecake

Eli’s Key Lime Pie Cheesecake combines slow-cultured cream cheese, sour cream and pairs them with Florida key limes. The cheesecake is baked in a traditional graham cracker crust and topped with key lime curd and whipped cream. This Key Lime Pie Cheesecake, along with Irish Mint Cheesecake and Irish Cream Cheesecake, make up Eli’s Cheesecake’s St. Patrick’s Day flavor selections.

Eli’s Cheesecake has been a Chicago tradition since 1980, when it debuted at the Taste of Chicago (America’s largest food festival). Eli’s is still a family-owned business and now also one of the country’s largest specialty cheesecake bakeries.

It’s been said that there are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish and those who wish they were. I say there are two kinds of dessert eaters in the world, those who love cheesecake and those who haven’t had Eli’s Cheesecake yet!

    I really like the plain cheesecake if I had to pick just one, you cannot go wrong with cheesecake. Thanks for the opportunity and I hope you have a good day.

    Eli’s Original Cheesecake would be my choice as well. When it comes to cheesecake, as long as the original ingredients are quality ones, you really do not need all the additions to make it memorable

    My favorite is the Strawberry Cheesecake.

    I’m a little confused. The RC indicates the giveaway is open for a couple more hours; however, I’m not able to get an entry. I clicked to read the Terms & Conditions which indicate the giveaway ended (“Promotion Description: The ‘Eli’s Cheesecake – St. Paddy’s Day’ (“Sweepstakes”) begins on 03/03/2014 at 01:00 AM (Central Time (US & Canada)) and ends on 03/07/2014 at 05:00 PM (Central Time (US & Canada)) (the “Promotion Period”).” four days ago. I guess I just won’t enter.

      It’s still open for another 2 hours and 35 minutes. The app is Rafflecopter and I’ve heard from readers that it won’t work on mobile phones (you can’t enter on a mobile device) but I’ve not heard of any issues with desktops. If you have access to a desktop, you might try again. If you continue to have a problem, I’ll have to submit a trouble ticket to Rafflecopter so any additional information would be helpful. And since the only mandatory entry option is to answer the contest question in a comment, you could also enter that way – which is outside of Rafflecopter.

        I appreciate your prompt reply. If you provide your email, I will send you a screen shot of the RC form. I’m at a desktop and I’ve never had trouble using RC before.
        I don’t see the contest question (which is probably why I’m not able to enter on the RC), but I will say I’d love to try the Irish Cream Cheesecake.
        Thanks for the giveaway!
