Snow Monkey Disrupts the Ice Cream Industry in its First Summer on the Market

Fueling America's frenzy to find the most flavourful alternative to traditional ice cream, Snow Monkey, the Superfood Ice Treat, has recently announced its distribution expansion in America. Now retailing in a whopping 130 stores domestically, Snow Monkey continues to revolutionise the frozen dessert aisle.

Already available at retail locations and select Whole Foods Market stores in the Southern Pacific region, Snow Monkey continues to spread the indulgence. With the rollout of the 16-ounce pints at nearly 60 Wegmans stores along the East Coast, Snow Monkey is now available in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland. Central Market locations in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio have also begun featuring Snow Monkey in its freezer sections.

Snow Monkey knows that leading a healthy lifestyle isn't just a New Year's Resolution, and this is a recurring trend that we at thefoodpeople have followed of the past few years now. Now more than ever, modern consumers crave quick, nutritious snacks to satisfy those hunger pangs. In fact, Nielsen Product Insider reveals that the sale of non-dairy ice cream jumped an impressive 49% over the previous year, with shoppers naming protein content as a leading factor in their selection.

And chock-full of an unprecedented 20 grams of protein, Snow Monkey delivers. With recipes crafted from superfoods, using only seven natural, plant-based ingredients, this frozen treat fuels the everyday adventure while keeping the sweet tooth under control. Loaded with fibre and antioxidants, one pint boasts more fibre than four bowls of oatmeal, more protein than three eggs and more iron than a 16-ounce tenderloin steak. Committed to salubrious and sustainable living, Snow Monkey is Vegan, Paleo, Non-GMO, and is free of all eight major allergens including gluten, soy, dairy and nuts.

With an entire pint of Snow Monkey coming in at just under 400 calories, dig in and treat your taste buds to this refreshing and creamy snack. Current flavours include Cacao and Goji Berry with plans to expand the line shortly.

Launched in January 2017, Snow Monkey is the brainchild—and the brain food—of two millennials who took a clever recipe they created in college and brought it to life. Collegiate athletes, Rachel Geicke and Mariana Ferreira sought a frozen snack, abundant in nutritious goodness, that would supercharge their fitness endeavors. But when they came up empty, they decided to reinvent ice cream for themselves.
