The food pyramid has trouble categorizing some items, such as cheesecake, which is both dairy and dessert, and spam, which is both meat and a mystery. Savor the sweet uncertainty of the former with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of cheesecake and more at Peteet’s Famous Cheesecakes in Oak Park.
Peteet’s gourmet two-layer cheesecakes are made by hand from scratch, and feature only the freshest all-natural ingredients. More than 90 flavors are featured on its sensational rotation, with up to 30 flavors being chosen out of a baker’s hat and prepared daily.
Stick a fork into a slice ($3.50) of Peteet’s original plain, an ingratiating graham-cracker crust piled with one layer of classic cheesecake and then another, or forgo silverware altogether and force five fingers and a face into a five-flavor cheesecake, a tasty amalgamation of coconut, rum, almond, lemon, and vanilla. Flavors such as key lime, banana, PB&J, and french-vanilla cappuccino can also be enjoyed in whole-cheesecake ($25.95) form, and dessert-demanding diabetics will delight over a sugar-free cheesecake ($27.95, limited flavors). Add the finishing touch to any order with a fruity topping, such as strawberry, cherry, blueberry, or pineapple ($2 extra).
