16 Handles Launches Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle, Made with Cashew Milk!

January 16, 2019

To kick off 2019, 16 Handles is launching a line of all-new, vegan soft serve flavors developed with proprietary recipes and real, natural ingredients. New, cashew milk based flavors will launch on the Sweet 16th of each month through March, starting with the ultra-indulgent Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle on January 16th.

The new product line brings more options for the ever-growing vegan and dairy-alternative communities to 16 Handles shops. Handcrafted by the brand’s lead chef with all-natural ingredients like hazelnuts and cocoa, the flavors are free from additives like corn syrup or soy. Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle will launch alongside new, vegan Belgian chocolate chips on the 16 Handles toppings bar, which are perfect for adding a bit of crunch to the ultra-creamy soft serve.

For ten years, 16 Handles has been named New York City’s #1 frozen yogurt. The brand has always been ahead of the curve, branching out to include a variety of soft serve options, including sorbets, ice creams, gelatos, and Italian ices. Always innovating, 16 Handles wants everyone to be able to enjoy delicious soft serve, regardless of their dietary restrictions or choices. Expanding upon vegan and non-dairy options with first-of-its-kind cashew milk soft serve was a no-brainer, especially with recipes so craveable that customers will forget they’re not eating ice cream.

“Since the very beginning, New Yorkers have embraced 16 Handles because of our commitment to quality, innovation, and inclusiveness. We want more options so our vegan and dairy-alternative guests can flaunt their flavor both in our shops and by ordering on our delivery platforms. Our Fro-Yo and ice cream fans are going to be surprised at how delicious these flavors are too,” says 16 Handles CEO and founder, Solomon Choi.

As always, 16 Handles app users get double loyalty points when they stop in to try the new flavors on the Sweet 16th of the month.
