Schwans Consumer Brands Putts A New Course for Ice Cream
Frozen pizza and home-delivery-service leader Schwans Consumer Brands, grows its philanthropic Jack Nicklaus Ice Cream line, a premium but affordable frozen dessert concept. The original line debuted a year ago when golf icon Jack Nicklaus and Schwan’s teamed up with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to financially assist this national non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across North America.
The new flavors are Black Cherry, Blueberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cookies & Cream, Mango Crisp, Mint & Chip and Pineapple Upside Down Cake, which join the original seven flavors of Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl, Coffee and Donuts, Homemade Vanilla, Salted Caramel Toffee, Strawberry Lemonade, Triple Chocolate and Warm Spiced Butter Pecan. Several of the new flavors were inspired by recipes from Barbara Nicklaus, who just released a cookbook, Well Done! with all proceeds benefitting the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.
The 2015 trial of the ice cream in select markets in Florida and Central Ohio was such a success that the brand is expanding retail distribution. Consumers across the country can also have the ice cream delivered to their homes by ordering online.
