Eli’s Cheesecake is teaming up with another Chicago icon, Green River Soda, to create a special cheesecake for St. Patrick’s Day. Eli’s Green River Cheesecake is a rich and creamy neon lime cheesecake, topped with lime gelee, baked on Eli’s signature all butter shortbread cookie crust and made with real Green River flavoring.
The 9” cheesecake serves 14 and costs $59.95 plus shipping. It’s available nationally at Eli’s website (order by Tuesday, March 15 at 8:00 am for St Patrick’s Day delivery), for curbside pickup by ordering online, and by-the-slice at Manny’s Cafeteria and Delicatessen.
After many years of serving Green River at Eli’s Cheesecake’s annual reception for Chicago’s St Patrick’s Day Queen and her court, the two Chicago brands joined forces. In 2020, Eli’s Green River Cheesecake debuted.
“St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal in Chicago. The city dyes the river bright green, and Green River Cheesecake is another fun and festive way to celebrate,” says Eli’s president Marc Schulman.
Eli’s is also teaming up with Sprecher for the ultimate Green River giveaway (a Green River Cheesecake and Green River Soda). For details on how to enter, follow @ElisCheesecake and @SprecherBrewery on Instagram.
