SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Snow Monkey, the protein-rich frozen treat that comes in pints, has expanded distribution to Wegmans, Central Market and Nugget Market. Now in 130 stores domestically, the brand is riding the 49% annual growth (Nielsen Product Index) of non-dairy ice cream. Shoppers say protein content is a leading factor in their selection.
With 20 grams of protein, Snow Monkey is made with seven natural, plant-based ingredients. One pint reportedly has fewer than 400 calories, and more fiber than four bowls of oatmeal, more protein than three eggs and more iron than a 16-ounce tenderloin steak. The product is Vegan, Paleo, Non-GMO, and free of all eight major allergens including gluten, soy, dairy and nuts.
Launched in January, Snow Monkey is the brainchild of two millennials using a recipe they created in college. Collegiate athletes, Rachel Geicke and Mariana Ferreira sought a frozen snack that would supercharge their fitness endeavors. Finding nothing, they created their own.
“We’re on a mission to change the way America eats,” said Rachel Geicke. “We believe that nutritious and delicious go hand in hand, so we created a product that proves this idea.” Co-founder, Mariana Ferreira, agrees. “People are demanding delicious, clean food more than ever,” she said. “Whether you are eating it for breakfast, fuel or indulgence, Snow Monkey affords all the fun of treating yourself without the guilt.”
