Cheesecake Factory Unveils New Skinny Cocktails at 150 Calories

Cheesecake Factory Skinny Cocktails: Love Them or Hate Them?

Cheesecake Factory Skinny CocktailsWant to keep that resolution but order that cocktail and drink it, too? That's exactly what The Cheesecake Factory is hoping for with a line of "skinny" cocktails to be unveiled today. The new products will feature five of the chain's bestselling drinks, among them margaritas and mojitos, with total calorie counts around 150 — roughly half the nutritional value of their popular counterparts. The cocktail drink mixers, which are made in-house, will replace some sugar with sweeteners such as Splenda. Alcohol content, portions, and prices, however, will remain the same. What do you think of this new beverage category: is it a good idea or a bad idea?

Ugh, if only they had chosen Stevia instead of chlorinated disgusting Splenda! Susannah - Back when I ate at McDonald's all the time I always got a Diet Coke. lol I just like the taste and can't stand regular Coke!

The idea of artificial sweetener in a cocktail totally kills it for me! No thanks, CF.

Clever idea-agree with everyone above that Cheesecake Factory might not be the ideal place for it, but I'd love if these options became popular at bars/nightclubs!

It's kind of funny, like getting a super-sized meal at McDonald's and then ordering a Diet Coke. Should be interesting to see if the cocktails are just skinny on calories — or if they're skinny on taste, too.

I'm not against it per se, but if you're eating at the Cheesecake factory you're already pretty screwed nutrition-wise.
