MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Just in time for National Pi Day, the makers of Edwards® desserts are introducing New York Style Cheesecake to their whole-pie lineup, giving families nationwide a little taste of the big city.
Schwan’s Consumer Brands, Inc., is unveiling Edwards® New York Style Cheesecake whole premium pie on National Pi Day, typically celebrated for the mathematical symbol π (approximately 3.14, or the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter) — but for Edwards® desserts — it’s all about “P.I.E.” A perfect thaw-and-serve dessert option for the entire family, the new whole pie is made with real cream cheese and baked in a graham cracker crust.
“Our single-serve New York Style Cheesecake Singles are the No.1 selling single-serve cheesecake in the marketplace, so it made perfect sense to add it to our premium whole-pie lineup,” said Bob Waldron, president of Schwan’s Consumer Brands. “Edwards® New York Style Cheesecake offers a delicious and authentic New York-style treat in whole-pie form, fit for a large group to enjoy.”
Edwards® New York Style Cheesecake whole premium pie can be found in freezer aisles at local grocers and retails for $8.49 a package.
