So much peppermint, so little time.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: peppermint season. While weird candy canes and the presence or absence of peppermint-flavored beverages get most of the attention, don’t sleep on the peppermint party going on over at the Cheesecake Factory.

That’s because they’ve brought back their very own peppermint bark-ified take on their namesake dessert, now available at their many fine casual dining locations scattered across the country.

One look at this thing makes it very cleary that peppermint isn’t a mere add-on or afterthought, but the star of the show. According to the menu, this thing is a white chocolate cheesecake that’s “swirled with chunks of chocolate peppermint bark.” It’s also adorned with a white chocolate mousse and features a plethora of chopped peppermint just to really drive the point home.

If for some reason you’re a peppermint hater but just need to have dessert at the Cheesecake factory, there are other new options in play as well. Specifically, you can opt for the pineapple upside-down cheesecake, which slides pineapple cheesecake between two layers of pineapple upside down cake for more of a Christmas in Hawaii vibe. There’s also plenty more cheesecake where that came from, since that’s kind of, you know, their whole thing.

So if peppermint is the reason for the season as far as you’re concerned, you’re going to want to give yourself the gift of this peppermint cheesecake from the only restaurant chain brave enough to put cheesecake right in its name. They’re ready for you.
