A typical snack size cheese cake is about 90 grams in weight, but each vary in fat, sugar, carbs and salt content. Below are 6 pictures of the typical values, of 6 of snack cheesecakes currently on the market, 3 are made by tescos and 3 are made by GU.  The tescos cheesecakes are listed on tescos website to last up to 4 days after buying them, whereas GU is stated to last up to a week.

As can be seen by the fat, carbohydrates and sugar contents they are all very high considering that the desert is only 90 grams in weight. fat is between; 10 to 25 grams, carbohydrate is between; 26 to 32 grams, sugar is between; 17 to 21 grams, these are all very high numbers to consider, when choosing to eat a product.

The 3 cheesecakes that i am making for this project are; new york cheesecake, very berry cheesecake, and chocolate cheesecake.
