And I have never set foot into a CF before. Woot! I agree with cloe bella though. Big portion sizes like those desserts should be shard and when they are, the calorie amount will be smaller :) I'll just bake my sweets at home. at least there i can control the majority of calories and the portion size :)

I'm not taking this. I don't want to know! I have cheesecake once a year and won't have it ruined! :D

Ahh. I think it must vary from state to state though. In the states where I have lived, there was only a flat sales tax and nothing else (aside from gratuity of course)

I am taxed every time I eat in a restaurant in America. The lack of tax only applies to food purchased in a grocery store, drug store, etc.

But how can you be taxed for eating in a restaurant in America? Isn't that illegal since food is a necessity? Or does that only apply to grocery stores, etc...

Asche, I'm guessing you don't live in the U.S., so it's all relative. I think almost twice as much as sales tax qualifies as being heavily taxed.

I agree Chloe Bella, but the problem is that most people don't think that way. In the same way that a bottle of Tylenol has warning information on it, why shouldn't the CF be required to print about portion sizes, nutrition info, etc. @lilkimbo: Where I live, fast food is HEAVILY taxed. It costs at least $30 for two people to eat at a fast food place like McDonalds.

I agree with chloe bella, if I ever go to CF, I always share a slice between 3 or 4 people. 200-400 calories for a decadent dessert is not bad at all! It's not like we'd eat this every other day.

Good God, those stats are horrible. Never again!

Ok, this is driving me crazy. You have to look at nutrition facts in proportion to SIZE! I'm by no means the Cheesecake Factory's biggest fan, but I find it so misleading when this blog, as well as books like "Eat This, Not That," compare two items of substantially different quantities and then act horrified when the one that is 10 times bigger has significantly more calories. Maybe a supersized dessert meant for sharing has 800 calories - but if you only eat 1/4 of it (the size of a NORMAL dessert), it's only 200 calories. I mean, when you go to a grocery store and look at nutrition facts, you look at the serving size, not the amount of calories in the entire container. You don't just pick up a box of cereal and say "Well, there are over a 1000 calories in this entire box, so I would never eat this."

Yes, the desserts at the Cheesecake Factory are calorie and fat heavy. One of my favorite cheesecakes, the carrot cake cheesecake, is one of the highest (if not the THE highest) in calories and fat. I could feel it, too. When I finish a slice, I am on a sugar high.

I don't care bad it is for me, its delicious and its worth every calorie for a once in a while indulgence.

Asche, we are taxed heavily when eating out. Where I live, sales tax is 5.75% and tax on food from restaurants is 10%.

@Modus Vivendi: I think it's easy to beat up on the Cheesecake Factory because they deserve it. Why have they never released nutrition info? Officially, they claim, "We pride ourselves on using only the freshest and finest ingredients available. Everything on our menu is made in-house on a daily basis so that we can maintain the highest food quality standards." Obviously a factor of not releasing the nutrition information is the public outrage this info has created. The sad thing is that they are in business because people are buying their food. Have you ever been there when there isn't a long wait? When I have gone there, I always try to order simple things, like a salad with no dressing. But when I look on the menu and see that the 57 calorie tossed greens have 147 mg of sodium (more than the salad dressings!), it makes me angry--I highly doubt that all of that sodium is occurring naturally.

T_T but i guess it's not much of a surprise. makes me glad that on the rare occasion that i go there i always split my dessert (turtle cheesecake does have a special place in my heart).

It seems like it's easy/trendy to beat up on the Cheesecake factory lately. They wouldn't be in business if people weren't buying their food. Besides, most people don't eat there every day and don't finish their meals when they do.

This makes me so angry. We get heavily taxed for buying, say, a luxury purse, but not for this crap? There is the way to save the fatty foods like Europeans do!
