12/24 Christmas wish: N.Y. style cheesecake

@BR Ednote:Editor’s Note: Each Christmas season Bradenton Herald staff select their favorite gift selections from local businesses and nonprofits.

Gift suggestion: A New York style cheesecake

Description: Yummy sums it up. It’s the thick, mouth-watering style with plenty of cream cheese and eggs. My favorites are the raspberry and strawberry swirl. The cakes come in 6-, 8-, and 10-inch sizes. They are made fresh every day with no preservatives or additives, and sugarfree cakes are available.

Cost: $10, $16 and $22.50.

Why I like it: A great last-minute gift that everyone will appreciate. Also, if you need to bring something to a friend’s or relative’s dinner, this would be a great addition.

Where you can buy it: Mr. Cheesecake, 1128 30th Ave. W., Bradenton, (941) 747-5955.
