Some cheesecake fast facts:
The Greeks are said to have served cheesecake to Olympic athletes at the first games but cream cheese didn't make it into the recipe until it hit America.
The first New York-style cheesecake arrived on the scenes in the late 1800s, credited to German American Arnold Reuben, according to cheesecake.com.
Cheesecake is so popular, there are offshoots of National Cheesecake Day based on seasons and flavors.
