16 Handles Sweetens the Menu with Crème Brûlée Flavor

16 Handles is ringing in the New Year with a delicious new frozen yogurt flavor: Crème Brûlée.  

Crème Brûlée frozen yogurt brings a cool, low-fat twist to a hot dessert favorite. The flavor offers hints of vanilla, custard, and caramelized sugar—the only thing missing is half the fat.

As with all 16 Handles’ flavors, Crème Brûlée is Kosher certified and carries The National Yogurt Association’s seal of approval. The new flavor is now available at all 16 Handles locations.

“We’re starting off 2013 by kicking things up a notch and taking our frozen yogurt flavors and novelties to the next level,” says Solomon Choi, 16 Handles founder and CEO.

16 Handles features 16 rotating “handles” of frozen yogurt, along with an endless toppings bar that includes fresh, hand-cut fruit, nuts, candies, cakes, sauces, and other exclusive, chef-inspired toppings.

In addition, 16 Handles offers non-dairy sorbets, frozen yogurt cakes, and WhipUps—guest-inspired creations that blend premium frozen yogurt and toppings into one frozen confection. 

16 Handles is an innovative frozen yogurt and dessert brand that encourages guests to Flaunt Their Flavor. Whether guests want a better-for-you snack or an indulgent frozen dessert, 16 Handles offers something for everyone.

Founded in 2008 by foodservice industry expert Solomon Choi, 16 Handles was the first frozen yogurt brand to pioneer the self-serve concept in New York City. Today the company has grown to 29 locations across New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, and Florida, and forecasts that 50 stores will be open by the end of 2013.

Committed to sustainability, 16 Handles uses biodegradable packaging and spoons; each store plants 16 trees per day through a partnership with Trees for the Future.
