    I know that The Cheesecake Factory offers them. They look like large truffles. Like many on this board, I don't care for the impersonal nature and overly advertised space in the menu at the actual restaurant, but I have a real weakness for the actual cheesecake. Please don't flame me for suggesting a chain!

      I think Eatzi's & Whole Foods might have them- although never tried

        don't shoot me, but what about just going to Bj's or Costco any buying them in bulk there? I've had them before and they are plenty good.

            You know, now that you mention it, I think Sara Lee does something like this (maybe not chocolate covered? not sure) for sale at Giant, etc.

            found out Cheescake Factory doesn't offer them anymore.
            Thanks for the suggestions though. Keep em coming!

            How about mini croissant's?

              not sure if this is what you're looking for,
              but sutton (at least the bethesda one) has mini fruit cheesecakes.

              Easy and cheap and I bet they're not bad.

                Where are you located? Our local pastry shop provided them to us on request (actually it was their idea), maybe check with your local or convenient pastry shop?

                  Person who is throwing this lives in Reston. She's checking around, but hasn't had too much success.

                    You may want to try Wegman's.

                      Might want to give Amphora's Diner/Bakery a call or <link> http://www.amphorabakery.com/ </link>. I love their cakes and I know they offer bite-sized versions in their display case. They have 3 locations, Vienna, Herndon (at Centreville Rd and Alabama (?)) and in Reston (off of Sunset and Herndon Pkwy). The bakery itself, is located in Reston.

                        I know it is not in Reston, but JUST CAKES in Bethesda is really the one source for all things cake and sweet. Marge who runs this small, adorable shop is very accomodating and will help you to get exactly what you want. I am quite partial to her cupcakes and again, nothing there has fallen short.

                          I used to hunt for those bite-size cheesecake for my husband. I have gone to many places, but I can only find sara-lee in Harris Teeter. I see them in 3 different stores, so good luck with the one that is nearby u.
