' Superfood Ice Treat New and Updates | Snow Monkey – Page 3

Snow Monkey disrupts Ice Cream Industry in first summer

Fueling America's frenzy to find the most flavorful alternative to traditional ice cream, Snow Monkey, the Superfood Ice Treat loaded with luscious taste and packed with protein, announces its expanded distribution to Wegmans, Central Market and Nugget Market. Now retailing in a whopping 130 stores domestically, Snow Monkey continues to revolutionize the frozen dessert aisle, one pint at a time.

Already available at retail locations and select Whole Foods Market stores in the Southern Pacific region (CA, AZ, NV), 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. Additionally, pints can be purchased at all 16 Nugget Market locations in Northern California. At present, distribution totals include 11 states and 130 stores.

Snow Monkey knows that leading a healthy lifestyle isn't just a New Year's Resolution. 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 fiber and antioxidants, one pint boasts more fiber 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 flavors 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. Snow Monkey was born out of love and necessity in their Boston University dorm room.

"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."

Geicke and Ferreira invite you to grab a pint and join their tribe.

Snow Monkey Selected to Join the USC Marshall School of Business Startup Incubator

Tommy Trojan, Meet Snow Monkey

Santa Monica, CA—Snow Monkey, a health food startup reinventing ice cream, has been chosen to join the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business Startup Incubator


Led by Professor Paul Orlando, the USC Startup Incubator offers mentoring, small group classes, peer idea exchange and the full support of the USC community. Snow Monkey is joined by other early stage USC student and alumni businesses as part of the incubator.

Katie Krell, director of impact and partnerships, attended USC as an undergraduate student, never dreaming one day she would return with her startup. “It’s energizing to be back on campus, to walk down Trousdale, to be reengaged with this vibrant community.”

While the USC Incubator is home to a variety of companies from tech to fashion, there are several food startups like Homemade Harvey, fresh crushed fruit in a packet, Pulp Pantry, granola and snacks made with juicery pulp, Lahtt Sauce hot sauce and Desert Farms camel milk that are all facing similar challenges as nascent CPG companies.

Snow Monkey was born at Boston University while both co-founders Rachel Geicke and Mariana Ferreira were still students. After a move to Los Angeles, the co-founders are now putting down roots on the west coast. “Universities drive innovative thinking. It’s a natural fit for Snow monkey to always want to be immersed in an experiential learning culture,” shares Rachel Geicke, co-founder. “We’re excited to find a home with the Trojan community and to be able to give back.”

Snow Monkey is also participating in a Marshall School of Business growth hacking class, where students get work side-by-side with companies to tackle real-life challenges. “We are launching an ecommerce channel,” shares Mariana Ferreira, co-founder. “Shipping ice cream is a real thing, and we are excited to have students help us strategize, test and growth hack our way to success in this category.”

Snow Monkey is actively working to offer Snow Monkey on the USC campus in addition to developing a Snow Monkey campus ambassador program.  

About the USC Incubator

The USC Incubator accelerates the development of the University of Southern California’s top student and alumni entrepreneurs through experiential education, mentorship and community.
