16 Handles Launches ‘Oh My, Pumpkin Pie’

From www.restaurantnews.com

New York, NY  (RestaurantNews.com)  Move over Pumpkin Spice Latte.

There is some creamy competition in town that will have you saying, “Oh My, Pumpkin Pie.”

16 Handles is launching a brand new pumpkin frozen yogurt and it’s unlike any other pumpkin soft serve. The Artisan creation is made at 16 Handles creamery with real pumpkin, spices and actual bits of freshly baked graham cookies. It’s as if the popular fro-yo chain took your grandmother’s classic homemade pumpkin pie recipe and turned it into a creamy frozen yogurt treat.

16 Handles founder/CEO Solomon Choi says,  “We know pumpkin’s popular and we got tired of tasting all the artificial flavorings out there. Nobody could get pumpkin right – so we decided to perfect it!”

The team worked closely with their chef to create the best tasting pumpkin flavor on the market. “Compare ‘Oh my, Pumpkin Pie’ to any of our competitors and I guarantee you’ll be coming back for more!,” says Choi.

“Oh My, Pumpkin Pie” hits all 16 Handles locations today (September 23rd).
