Try a milk shake donut

Fractured Prune, 4910 W. Ray Road, Chandler, is touting a milk shake that may appeal to donut addicts.

The eatery will put any glaze or toppings that would normally go on a doughnut into a shake. For example, for the peach cobbler shake it would be vanilla ice cream blended with any of its glazes or toppings to create a totally unique creation.

Fractured Prune’s fresh and made-to-order cake donuts are blended with vanilla ice cream, and a choice of over 19 glazes and 13 toppings. The indulgent milkshakes include the Peach Pie, with peach glaze and graham crackers, or Strawberry Shortcake, with strawberry glaze, graham crackers, and powdered sugar.

Even Stevens gives back big

Even Stevens Sandwiches, which has a restaurant in downtown Chandler and 20 others across the Valley and country, has donated three million sandwiches to 20 non-profits in six states. “The impact to local non-profits has been astounding, and in an effort to continue to improve their communities,” a company spokesman said, adding that the eatery has partnered with Eco-Products to bring environmental sustainability to its restaurants.

“Even Stevens is always striving to improve and we are thrilled to introduce fully compostable take away containers to the market,” said Lauren Singer Katz, brand director.

Eco-Products makes sustainable food service disposables using plant-based materials, reclaimed and renewable resources. Even Stevens culinary team collaborated with Eco-Products to produce to-go boxes and coffee cups that compost in as few as 45 days, are made from renewable resources, and keep food and drinks fresh longer.

While many restaurants are opting out of using straws altogether, Even Stevens wanted to remain inclusive for all guests while doing their part in creating less waste so it now offers plant-based straws.
