If another sweet cheesecake option isn’t enough, Eli’s is going one step further to land themselves on Santa’s “nice” list. Student beekeepers from the Chicago High School of Agricultural Sciences (CHSAS) are helping to harvest the honey put into the cheesecakes. All proceeds from purchasing the honey and a portion of the proceeds from Wildflower Honey Cheesecake sales go to the CHSAS’s college scholarship fund for deserving seniors.
“It’s a win-win because by purchasing the honey from CHSAS, we not only support the school financially, but give students the opportunity to participate in many aspects of the food industry,” Marc Schulman, Eli’s president, said in a statement.
CHSAS students are involved in every step of the honey process, from harvesting to preparing and bottling to delivery of the wildflower honey to Eli’s Cheesecake Company.
Wildflower honey is amber to dark amber in color with mild floral overtones.
