Oatly soft serve will soon be available at 16 Handles, the only spot in the Capital Region you can find it this summer, and we’re having an ice cream social with FREE Oatly soft serve (up to 5 oz) to celebrate! We’ll also be offering caramelized cacao nibs from Primo Botanica as a free topping!

Fans of both brands can find Oatly soft serve, including two exclusive flavors at our June event (and more coming in July!), at all three 16 Handles stores in the Capital Region (listed below) and all locations throughout the Tristate Area! 16 Handles launched their first soy milk vegan soft serve flavor in 2013. Since then, the brand’s chefs have created flavors with almond milk, cashew milk, and oat milk!

Check our social pages (@capregionvegans) for the announcement of the new soft serve flavors!

This will be our first in-person event of 2021! We’re so excited to start seeing everyone this summer and enjoy the upcoming warm weather. Come try some of the delicious 16 Handles x Oatly soft serve at our event, and create a custom treat your way! We hope to see you there!
