We stopped by the fro-yo chain to try the new flavors—Tahitian Vanilla Bean, Mint Chocolate Chip and So Fresh Mango Sorbetto. Oh yeah, and some misguided toppings. Banana Chips Foster, anyone?
'16 Handles' on Serious Eats
16 Handles just released a new coffee-laden flavor, Mocha Java Chip. We brave the chilly weather to taste this swirled treat and give the run down.
I wasn't expecting much when I stepped inside the sleek, minimalist storefront of the Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn location. I don't usually go for fruity fro-yo or ice cream flavors, generally preferring to stick close to chocolate- or vanilla-based varieties, and I felt particularly wary about a flavor like apple, which usually tastes synthetic in desserts unless there are some real apples in there. But I dutifully grabbed a paper cup and let 'er rip. I took a spoonful: much to my surprise, the yogurt was damn good.
