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 with $8 for $16 worth of frozen yogurt at 16 Handles on the Upper East Side. The name springs from the rotating cast of 16 different flavors of frozen yogurt on tap every day. Peruse the selection at this fantastical hub of lucid sweet dreams to create a concoction that truly reflects your sweet tooth's bold idiosyncrasies.

The average price of creations of yogurt and toppings is about $5. Frozen yogurt is an inherently light dessert, with a half-cup serving often containing 100 calories or less. Where the numbers go from there depends on how many half-cup servings you crave and what you top them off with. You won't receive any credit or cash back, so you build a behemoth 32-ounce empire, or use your Groupon toward multiple cups for your kids, yogurt-fueled robodog, or perfect strangers named Balki Bartokomous.

Flavors are constantly changing, with a different assortment of 16 playing the field at any given time, like a precision team of Mathletes. Possible flavors you may encounter and consume include NY cheesecake, Irish mint, peanut butter, or margarita tart. The dessert den also offers sugar-free (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry) and dairy-free (mango tango, very berry, kiwi strawberry) options to satisfy sensitive bellies.

Try seasonal fruit toppings such as blackberry, mango, and kiwi, or more sweet-tooth-friendly fixings like chocolate-covered pretzels, Butterfingers, cookie dough, or Cinnamon Toast Crunch. The topping bar stretches as far as the eye can see, which is coincidentally as far as the stomach can eat. Combinations of the 30-plus toppings and 16 flavors are as endless as a colony of ants in a kaleidoscope. Proven mixes are featured on 16 Handles' website, giving curious customers a sense of possible possibilities.

  • I sat down at one of the five cafe tables and wondered if the yogurt would taste as good as it looked. It did. There was no hint of the chemical aftertaste found in some frozen yogurts, and the flavors were true to their names. – Kelly Feeney, New York Times
  • …16 Handles has been serving up scrumptious scoops of frozen yogurt "your way"—which actually means that you get to scoop up as much or as little as your sweet teeth desire. – New York Press

Great location, great variety of frozen yogurts and toppings. It was very good but I thought it was a little pricey.
