The Cheesecake Factory just combined two of the best cold and creamy sweet treats into one dessert.

On Tuesday, the restaurant announced that it's releasing a new line of ice cream pints made with a lot of the same ingredients that it puts in its larger-than-life cheesecakes.

As first reported by People, the cheesecake-flavored ice creams are set to hit grocery stores this March and will come in seven flavors inspired by the chain's most popular flavors. Each 14-ounce carton will have a suggested retail price of $4.99, but a rep for the brand was not able to confirm which grocery stores would be carrying the new pints.

The restaurant chain known its overt-the-top portions enlisted Iowa-based ice cream manufacturer Wells Enterprises, Inc. to help concoct the indulgent flavors, which are all made made with a sour cream and cream cheese base. The full lineup of flavors include:

  • Original: Plain cheesecake-flavored ice cream with swirls of graham crackers
  • Chocolate: Rich chocolate-cheesecake ice cream with fudge swirled throughout
  • Cookies & Cream: Cheesecake ice cream studded with crunchy bits of chocolate cookies and swirls of chocolate
  • Salted Caramel: A salty and sweet treat with a caramel cheesecake base and graham swirls
  • Birthday Cake: Yellow cake-flavored cheesecake ice cream with little cake pieces, swirls of icing and candy sprinkles
  • Key Lime: A slightly tart Key lime-flavored cheesecake ice cream with graham swirls
  • Strawberry: Strawberry cheesecake ice cream with graham swirls

A Cheesecake Factory spokesperson declined to share nutritional information for the pints, but since one slice of the chain's original cheesecake packs in over 800 calories, a serving of its original ice cream will likely be a bit better for you. The ice cream pints join other products in the chain's at-home line, which includes frozen cheesecakes, coffee creamer and cupcakes.
