October 02, 2012 // Franchising.com // NEW YORK, NY – 16 Handles™, today’s most innovative frozen yogurt brand, welcomes back seasonal favorite ‘Fist Pumpkin,’ a beloved, limited edition frozen yogurt designed to capture the spirit and flavor of the autumn harvest.
Fist Pumpkin brings a low fat frozen yogurt twist to one of today’s most cherished seasonal flavors, pumpkin pie. The flavor blends delicious pumpkin goodness with perfect hints of cinnamon and spice. It pairs well with graham crackers, cheesecake bites and 16 Handles’ proprietary topping, Granola Gone Wild. As with all 16 Handles flavors, Fist Pumpkin is Kosher certified and carries The National Yogurt Association’s seal of approval.
“Fist Pumpkin got its name from the reaction we saw when guests tasted this flavor—lots of excitement and even a little fist pumping,” said Solomon Choi, 16 Handles founder. “We’re excited to welcome Fist Pumpkin back into the mix and to reunite our brand fans with a flavor that they look forward to all year.”
Fist Pumpkin is available at all 16 Handles locations through December.
