April 15, 2013 // Franchising.com // NEW YORK, NY -16 Handles™ (http://www.16handles.com), today’s most innovative frozen yogurt brand, announces the release of its newest flavor: Tiramisu.
A new addition that will delight fro-yo fans with heart for cake-inspired flavors, Tiramisu pairs the rich flavor of espresso-soaked ladyfinger cookies with perfect hits of vanilla and cinnamon. The new flavor pairs well with a variety of 16 Handles’ toppings including graham cracker crumbs, bananas and caramel or chocolate sauce. As with all 16 Handles’ flavors, Tiramisu is Kosher certified and carries The National Yogurt Association’s seal of approval. It is available starting Monday, April 15, in all 16 Handles’ locations.
“Tiramisu means “pick-me-up” in Italian, and this new flavor is so delicious it will lift anyone’s spirits,” said Solomon Choi, 16 Handles founder and CE-YO!. “Fat free yet still full of flavor, this better-for-you treat evokes a feeling of sitting at café in Rome while indulging in this famous layered Italian dessert.”
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 delicious frozen confection.
