On June 1, 16 Handles is kicking off summer by offering ice cream in two delicious flavors—Dutch Chocolate and Classic Vanilla.

The frozen dessert shop, traditionally known and beloved for its frozen yogurt, is expanding its offerings to include ice cream for the very first time, only for a limited time.

“16 Handles has always been about variety – we have something for everyone,” says CEO and founder, Solomon Choi. “This summer, by expanding our frozen dessert options to include ice cream, we’re letting customers flaunt their flavor in a whole new way. Nowhere else can you customize your dessert with as many options as you can at 16 Handles.”

Handcrafted with six simple ingredients, the new soft serve ice cream flavors, Dutch Chocolate and Classic Vanilla, are bound to delight. To celebrate, the brand is unleashing a 17th “twist” handle for the summer of ‘17, allowing customers to combine the two ice cream flavors for the ultimate summer treat.
