NC-inspired moonshine cheesecake revealed for National Cheesecake Day

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- It's National Cheesecake Day, and Triangle-based Royal Cheesecake & Varieties has created a North Carolina-inspired cheesecake to celebrate.

Ken and Tamara Williams own Royal Cheesecake & Varieties. The two stopped by the ABC11 studio to reveal their mystery flavor for National Cheesecake Day.

"This is our North Carolina Peach Moonshine Cheesecake on a brown sugar, butter pecan crust with candied pecans and a peach glaze and a moonshine drizzle," Tamara said.

The new flavor will be available along with the popular chicken and waffle cheesecake at a National Cheesecake Pop Up at Pour Taproom at 202 N. Corcoran St. in Durham from 4 p.m. to - 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

"We will also have some classic flavors in case you're not the daring type," Tamara said.

Royal Cheesecake & Varieties is starting a GoFundMe for a dessert truck it hopes to bring to the Triangle.
