Kosher Ham Cheesecake

Last week I attended an early thanksgiving party.  It was a pot luck dinner and officially it was for people to have a thanksgiving without family, but really it was just an excuse to eat a bunch of food.  As it happens about two thirds of the food brought were deserts.  One of these deserts was "Honeybaked Ham NY Style Cheesecake."  I was rather surprised by this because I didn't figure that ham would go well with cheesecake, plus the box had an OU (Orthodox Union) symbol, indicating that it was kosher and dairy.
I was informed that in fact it was a cheesecake that was made by the Honeybaked Ham company and just happened to be kosher.  It is like the McDonalds danish that are kosher.
