16 Handles… of yogurt

August 4, 2008 at 4:16 am 3 comments

Half eaten before I remembered the camera.

16 Handles (153 2nd Ave. New York, NY 10079) is different from the crop of fro-yo joints popping up all over. They have 16 flavors of yogurt (2 of which is non dairy sorbet) and a huge toppings bar. It is self serve; you pay by weight $0.46/oz (mine was $4.30, everyone else I saw filled up far more than me). I didn’t get to all the flavors this time, only the mango and raspberry sorbet, the green tea, plain and euro ‘tart’ yogurt. I found the sorbets a bit too sweet, the green tea was good and so were the plain ones. I skipped all the toppings (diced fresh fruits, candies/cereals, and they also had mini mochi which I always like). I can’t really tell the difference between the two yogurts (euro and plain), but I liked them as much or more than Pinkberry’s. They try to use eco-friendly materials; I love the wood spoons but I saw others with plastic ones too. I think it’s a bonus that you can control your serving size, unless you are not big on self control.

    My favorite yogurt is a frozen yogurt called Frogurt. Frogurt is low in calorie and almost completely non-fat. A small shop in midtown manhattan called Fresh Fruit Bouquet Company carries Frogurt. They make the most delicious parfaits with any fruits, nuts or toppings. Everyday during my lunch hour I hit FFBC and have a parfiat for my lunch, how addicting!! Now on the weekends I am starting to crave it. My favorite combination is Frogurt, banana, honey and walnuts, tasty and low in fat, can’t beat that. Definitely a stop for the fro-yo lovers, hope to see you there.
