Junior’s Cheesecake – Packaging

I will be visiting from Canada and would like to bring back a cheesecake, however the drive back is about 10 hours. Are their “stay-fresh containers” available directly from the shop in Brooklyn?

  1. Did you know you could order Junior's Cheesecake online?

    1. Many of the cheesecakes freeze very well. Freeze them and put them in a cooler.. You should be fine.

      1. As a follow-up to the OP's comment,JUNIOR'S cheesecake is available online, and from one of the Shopping Channels, HSN or QVC.

        I don't know if they ship to Canada, but if they do, ordering on online seems like a better option. They are deep frozen solid, and beautifully well packaged to travel.

        1. Hi - no one seems to have answered your question as to whether they will package them 'to go' (a long distance, that is) at the store itself. (I looked on their site and didn't find the answer either.) I think posters were trying to let you know that there is no need to go to Brooklyn and schlepp one back to Canada on a 10 hr drive when you can easily ship the same product to arrive at your home via junior's own website.

          1. I have taken one to go in a cooler and it travelled fine, but I was only flying to my folks' in Detroit, which is not as far. I too would like to know if the packaging that they use for fedexing a cheesecake to you is available when you walk in and carry out because I suspect cheesecake at usual cheesecake temperature is considered a "gel" by the TSA. Frozen cheesecake, however, is plane friendly. It's also a lot cheaper to carry yourself than to fedex. Or has anyone tried to carry cheesecake through security lately?
