Black Raspberry, made with oat milk!

Black Raspberry, made with oat milk!

August 21, 2020

When we launched our first two flavors made with oat milk back in January, we imagined a year’s worth of launches. But as we all know, 2020 didn’t go exactly to plan. Instead of working with our chefs to create new flavors this spring, the 16 Handles team doubled down on our safety protocols and new technology & service initiatives to serve our customers both in store and via online orders. We couldn’t be more proud of our team members and more grateful to our fans for their support these past few months. Now that we’ve perfected our services, reopened our stores, and launched online ordering across our 16 Handles shops, it’s time to get back to what we love best: creating amazing, innovative flavors.

We’re so excited to introduce Black Raspberry, our new dairy-free soft serve made with oat milk! Black Raspberry is one of those nostalgic flavors you might have found at your favorite summertime scoop shop when you were a kid. But we could never find the perfect soft-serve version that got Black Raspberry just right… so we decided to create it ourselves, exclusively for 16 Handles! While we were at it, we made it vegan (but you’d probably never guess). The sweet black raspberry notes perfectly balance fruity and indulgent. It’s the perfect canvas for your favorite toppings, and we think it will be the prettiest color in your cup.

Our oat milk base brings all the flavor you’d expect from a classic ice cream or frozen yogurt but leaves behind pesky allergens like dairy, tree nuts, gluten, and soy. We also keep Black Raspberry true to our 16 Handles recipe book by adding probiotics, the good-for-you cultures typically found in frozen yogurt. Flavors like Black Raspberry are the reason we say dietary celebrations instead of dietary restrictions. Whether you’re vegan, allergy conscious, or dairy obsessed, this flavor is something to celebrate.

Try Black Raspberry for a limited time starting 8/21 at your local 16 Handles shop, or order online for pickup, Curbside Pickup, or delivery*.
