A revolutionary dessert brought to you by leading cheesecake brand, Pleese. Boasting that ‘it is NOT ice cream’, the artisan cheesecake recipe is made with at least 35% cream cheese and full of flavour, sauces and crunchy biscuit pieces. Founded in 2017 by painter-decorator turned cheesecake connoisseur, Joe Moruzzi, with the aim of revolutionising the cheesecake sector. On the back of his hugely popular cheesecakes, Joe created a scoopable frozen dessert that uses cream cheese instead of ice-cream and Freezecakes was born. The hand-potted frozen cheesecake tubs officially launched in 2020 and were available to buy through the brand’s website. Three years on, the production and recipes have been further developed and finessed, being stocked in Co-Op and Waitrose nationwide.

Joe Moruzzi, Founder of Pleese, comments: “We’re so proud to finally see Freezecakes on the shelves in two of the UK’s leading supermarkets. This unique product brings the humble cheesecake into the 21st century by disrupting the dessert category. We help everyone share spectacular experiences and are confident that Freeecakes will be loved in homes across the country – serving up an instant cheesecake hit any time of day.”

Gareth Brain, Frozen Buyer at Co-op, says: “Innovation, quality and value are key drivers for our members and customers in the frozen aisles at Co-op and we’re thrilled to be one of the first retailers to add the new Freezecakes to our range. The response to the product on social media has been incredible and we’re confident that they will land with impact in our convenience stores.”

Joe Sharkey, Frozen Desserts Buyer at Waitrose, adds: “Freezecakes is a brilliant, disruptive idea. Our customers love cheesecake, and frozen desserts are growing in popularity, so we’re really excited to stock the full range of Pleese Freezecakes.”.
