March 11, 2013 16 Handles
16 Handles recently opened in Coolidge Corner. We stopped by one afternoon after shopping at Trader Joe’s. TJ’s on the weekend is like the 7th circle of hell, no joke: it’s crowded, people are leaving carts in the middle of the aisle and walking away, people are bumping into you, people are oblivious that there are other people in the store and then there are people who are just “browsing” when you just want to get 3 items….oh and those who just want 10 servings of the free sample.
Here is just a sampling of their flavors: Birthday Cake, Chocolate Love Affair, Coffee Break, Cookies And Cream, Eurotart, Graham Cracker, Green Apple Sorbet, Mango Tango Sorbet, NSA Blueberry Tease, NSA Irish Mint NSA, Southern Praline, Peanut Butter Confession, Pomegranate Tart, Salted Caramel, Toasty Marshmallow, and Vanilla Sky
Self serve frozen yogurt is nothing new to Coolidge Corner, but they have way more flavors that Berry Freeze. I went for the peach and vanilla frozen yogurt with the cheesecake and the crumb topping. Just what the doctor ordered to get me out of my funk.
You pay be weight, so be careful of all those heavy toppings. They have a small seating area in the front so you can relax and enjoy your treat before you go out and brave the cold weather! The cashier was friendly and the space was very clean. Two thumbs up for 16 Handles, can’t wait to go again!
