It's the fantasy of every actual and inner child to enter a world where sweet treats flow from the faucets and jellybeans rain from the sky. Today's Groupon shatters the candy pane between fantasy and reality: for $8, you get $16 worth of frozen yogurt and toppings at 16 Handles at Rio Center Mall in Gaithersburg.
16 Handles’ rotating selection of toppings and frozen-yogurt flavors gives health-conscious dessert fiends an excuse to indulge their insistent sweet teeth. Like a precision team of mathletes, the 16 non- and low-fat flavors are constantly rotating, with possible tastes on tap including peanut butter confession, cookies & cream, strawberry fields and birthday cake. The dessert den also offers sugar-free (mint, praline, and NY cheesecake) and dairy-free (berry medley, mango tango, and kiwi strawberry) options to satisfy sensitive bellies. Bedazzle unadorned scoops with seasonal fruit toppings such as blackberry, mango, and kiwi, or more sweet-tooth-friendly fixings including chocolate-covered pretzels, Butterfingers, cookie dough, or Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Combinations of the 30-plus toppings and 16 flavors are as endless as a colony of ants in a kaleidoscope. At $.49 per ounce the average serving is about $5, so ravenous eaters have the overindulgent option of building a behemoth 32-ounce empire or sharing the fro-yo wealth with kids, coworkers, or a yogurt-fueled robodog.
With locations in six states, 16 Handles is carving out a delicious space for itself in the self-serve frozen-yogurt world. In addition to rewarding customers’ cravings with a rotating daily selection of 16 flavors—each packed with protein, probiotics, and calcium—the healthy-dessert emporium sets itself apart from its competitors through its eco-friendly practices. 16 Handles not only arms its patrons with biodegradable cups and spoons crafted from cornstarch, but it also works with Trees for the Future, an organization that assists global communities in growing trees for agriculture, food, and animal habitat. Through their partnership, 16 Handles has planted 91,284 trees so far, one-quarter of which grow frozen yogurt instead of leaves.
