Start by weighing up the benefits of frozen versus chilled cheesecakes. If you pick a chilled one - to be stored in the fridge and eaten within a day or two - it will usually taste fresher, creamier and generally of a higher quality. These are great to whip out as a classy dessert with minimal preparation for family or fancy guests. They usually cost ever so slightly more, but the taste pay off is totally worth it!
On the other hand, you could plump for a frozen cheesecake. These babies keep for ages in your freezer drawer, so make a brilliant pick if you like to store up sweet snacks for future occasions.
They're cheaper and perfect for pudding emergencies, and although still pretty yummy, they tend not to be quite as moreish as chilled cheesecakes. It's really your call – are you prepping in advance or after something to be eaten ASAP?
If you've opted for a cheesecake from the chilled section, it's now time to select the cooking style that produces your preferred texture and flavour; baked or not? Cheesecakes such as these are perfect for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, or for when you have guests over.
Baked cheesecakes have a velvety, crumbly feel in the mouth, while no-bake cheesecakes offer a very light and whipped consistency, almost like a mousse. Pick which flavour you like best, remembering the ever-popular New York-style cheesecakes fall into the 'baked' category.
Do you like fruity, citrusy flavours? If so, opt for a cheesecake flavoured with tangy lemon or fresh mango. If you prefer to indulge, look out for rich, bold flavours like chocolate, salted caramel, or Millionaire's flavouring, which combines the two.
You could even choose a cake flavoured with your favourite branded product such as Oreo cookies or pieces of Daim bar. Finally, to enjoy the pure joy of an original cheesecake (that's sure to be a crowd-pleaser with guests you don't know!), try a classically simple and irresistibly light vanilla.
Most cheesecakes serve 6, but will vary in weight and size depending on the generosity of the brand, and the density of the contents – so if you're looking to feed a few hungry mouths, try to choose a larger size.
Alternatively, in order to avoid polishing off an entire family-sized cheesecake all by yourself (not that there's anything wrong with that!), you may prefer to seek out mini, individual cheesecake portions. They're often sold in pairs, so you and a pal can enjoy sensible-sized portions without overindulging or wasting a single crumb!
Gü are well-known for their mini cheesecakes, served in handy, recyclable glass pots, but other brands also offer similar options – a great choice if you're trying to improve your self-control, or simply don't like the idea of waste.
Why not have a coffee with your cheesecake? Check out our guide to Ground Coffees, here.
If you follow a plant-based diet, are allergic or intolerant to eggs or dairy, or are just moving closer towards cruelty-free options, you'll be pleased to know there's still plenty of choices. Look out for vegan cheesecakes which are produced without the use of any animal products, and you'll still be able to get your fix!
Likewise, if you react to gluten, check the ingredients and select a cheesecake that is entirely free from it; the bases of cheesecakes quite often contain dairy, eggs and gluten. Keep an eye out for it, because you'll feel much better without sacrificing flavour.

An outstanding cheesecake, this offering from Waitrose New York Cheesecake Raspberry & Passion is beautifully subtle in flavour and richly creamy all at once. It's classic, truly tasty and works well to serve to friends or as a well-deserved family treat.
This is a cheesecake flavoured with real vanilla, on a digestive biscuit base topped with raspberries and a delicious passion fruit glaze, this is an unrivalled pudding everyone will love.
Gü are one of the best-loved names in puddings in the UK for good reason; their flavours are spot on, their textures are moreish and delicate. These two cheesecakes are a banging pick for a couple – great to buy-in for a romantic dinner or lazy night in front of the telly.
The little glass pots have a portion that's just the right size without being sickly, and the zillionaire flavourings are a million times better than the same old millionaire's cheesecakes you're used to!
This classic vanilla cheesecake with delicious Lotus Biscoff is made by the English Cheesecake Company. This is a familiar flavour with an interesting Biscoff twist, and to top it all, it's gluten and vegan friendly.
Made entirely from plant-based ingredients, it's a truly flavourful dessert that not only tastes marvellous but will leave you feeling morally superior too. Utterly appetising for vegans and omnivores alike.
This double whammy of perfectly balanced fruity flavours is a moreish mouthful worth sharing. There are two baked cheesecakes in this pack, simply styled with fresh fruit topping on the vanilla cakes.
If strawbeerry is your jam (as it were), then these two puds make a cracking duo – just be sure to share them with a friend rather than scoffing the two yourself as they're very rich and decadant, though we wouldn't judge you.
Waitrose knows how to do luxurious, and this generously-sized cheesecake certainly lives up to that fabulous reputation. This cheesecake not only tastes great but looks good too, topped with salted caramel sauce, honeycomb, chocolate coated honeycomb and butterscotch decorations!
With a fine and crumbly shortbread base, a thick layer of mouth-watering vanilla cheesecake and lashings of salted caramel sauce, even the strong-willed among us would find it hard not to devour this cake in one sitting.
For die-hard lovers of the Oreo cookie, this cheesecake has it all. The matchless crunch of the midnight-dark Oreo biscuit, the luscious swirl of syrupy cream filling. All that in a buttery-soft slice of cheesecake!
It's not the largest in size, but the dense, crunchy base balances it all out – imagine a giant Oreo as soft as snow... Which reminds us, this cheesecake is frozen, so makes a functional freezer staple you can whip out in any pudding emergency.
For a creamy pud at a snip, Asda's raspberry cheesecake is a standout option, especially if you're looking for a non-chocolately flavour. It's simple, scrumptious and the raspberry coulis is gloriously tangy and sweet. One bite is simply not enough!
Made with Mascarpone cheese and real fresh fruit, Asda's endlessly edible pud is a brilliant choice if you want something saccharine and satisfying to end your meal. Priced right and perfect for family feasting.
If you want to skip the gluten and enjoy a cruelty-free treat, this is the cheesecake for you. Another perk of these mini desserts is that you won't be tempted to over-indulge and can comfortably save one for later, or share your pud with a friend.
Gü know exactly what they're doing when it comes to sugary afters, and this option manages to sidestep gluten, dairy, eggs, and nuts whilst retaining the unmistakable sumptuous flavour of other products from the same brand.
For anyone looking for classic creamy cheesecake joy, this pudding is top of the pops. The fact it's chilled means its has a certain sophistication of flavour that beats many frozen options, but the downside (if you can call it one!) is that it needs to be eaten pretty sharpish.
The simplicity may not appeal to everyone, but this is a rich and silky pudding which can be paired successfully with all kinds of fruits, coulis and other exotic toppings.
This delicious frozen cheesecake is flavourful and affordable too. It can be stored in the frostier section of your fridge-freezer for several months, so it's a wonderful way to make sure you're stocked up on sickly-sweet treats well into the new year.
This baked dessert has a lovely crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth texture and is flavoured with the sweetness of caramel, combined with the tang of salt – irresistible! It's a little on the small side, and sadly does not meet any dietary requirements, but should suit even the fussiest of dessert-lovers.
