June is National Frozen Yogurt Month. To celebrate, 16 Handles™ , New York’s premier 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.
Here’s the skinny on how hot this cool dessert/snack really is:
-Nearly 79 percent of snackers shared that they prefer frozen yogurt to ice cream
-More than 45 percent eat frozen yogurt at least one once a month
-Nearly 95 percent consider frozen yogurt to be a better-for-you dessert and snack alternative to ice cream; more than half also cited frozen yogurt as their top choice for dessert over candy, cake and cookies
16 Handles represents the continuing meteoric rise of frozen yogurt—not only as an ice cream alternative, but also as a rising American pastime. Frozen yogurt tastes better than ever, and flavor varieties have multiplied. Having pioneered the self-serve gourmet model in New York City in 2008, the company has since expanded to 23 stores nationally. 16 Handles urges every guest to Flaunt Their Flavor™ by offering 16 handles of premium frozen yogurt, along with a complementary toppings bar featuring more than 50 items. An eco-conscious company committed to sustainability, 16 Handles uses biodegradable packaging and spoons, while each store plants 16 trees per day though an ongoing partnership with Trees for the Future.
“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.”
