The frozen yogurt chain 16 Handles has partnered with New York Cares to launch a new flavor that will give a share of froyo sales to the charity. New York Cares is the city’s largest volunteer organization, perhaps best known for its annual winter coat drive for the poor and homeless. 16 Handles is giving the agency a bite of every sale of the new New York Cares Cheesecake flavor, which merges hints of sour cream, vanilla and graham cracker crust. In addition to donating a portion of all proceeds of the New York Cares Cheesecake flavor in all its NYC stores for the entire month of September, 16 Handles also is supporting New York Cares events and fundraisers designed to thank the many volunteers who donate their personal time and energy to help New Yorkers in need. So the next time you can’t decide between vanilla or chocolate, go for the cheesecake. You’ll be helping a fellow New Yorker.
And remember — Tasti D-Lite has a one-day frozen yogurt deal tomorrow — 25 cent cones to celebrate their 25th birthday.
