Unique and deliciously sweet, this birthday cake batter ice cream is the perfect treat to celebrate the start of summer.
16 Handles, traditionally known for its frozen yogurt, smoothies, and toppings, expanded its offerings to include ice cream for the very first time last summer with the launch of three ice cream flavors, including the brand’s first collaboration with chef Duff Goldman, Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream.
“We are thrilled to continue working with Chef Duff Goldman,” says CEO and founder, Solomon Choi. “Adding ice cream to our menu is just one of the ways 16 Handles is continuing to evolve in the frozen dessert space.
