Mark your calendar: National Frozen Yogurt Month begins June 1. To celebrate, 16 Handles, the New York self-serve frozen yogurt company, is serving up the results of its first annual Frozen Yogurt survey.
Based on the findings, it appears that throngs of national frozen yogurt fanatics will be celebrating in June—and beyond—as frozen yogurt continues to gain in popularity.

“Since our beginning, 16 Handles has been uniquely obsessed with frozen yogurt as a better-for-you and delicious alternative to other frozen snacks and desserts,” says Solomon Choi, 16 Handles’ founder. “June is a great time to pay tribute to an industry and beloved product that is helping to put smiles on faces from the young to the young at heart.”
Industry advocates are quick to trumpet that frozen yogurt is also a boon to the domestic dairy industry. According to the Innovation Center for US Dairy, snacking foods are a $90 billion/year market domestically, and 51 percent of snacking occasions have some emphasis on health and nutrition.
