N!CK’S has collaborated with Minecraft to release a line of ice cream with four different flavors.
Mojang has had many successes over the last decade after the launch of its most important sandbox. Despite the fact that since 2011, the year in which Minecraft finally came to user consoles, it has attracted the attention of the most creative players thanks to its wide world, the developers have been improving the title as the demands have increased. And in this way it became a benchmark for the industry that never seems to go out of style, since updates have positioned minecraft in an interactive par excellence that allows its fans to build anything they can imagine or imitate from the real world using just blocks, almost infinitely.
The results of Minecraft’s rapid growth are evident. And its fans have taken the commitment to the sandbox to another level by turning a simple construction into architectural works of art, projects that even involve years of work and, of course, the creation of a functional metagame within its interface using a few mods to achieve it.
Minecraft already has its own line of ice cream
So it is not surprising that Minecraft has had many collaborations with different companies around the world due to its great popularity. Although there is a wide range of collectible products on the market (from commemorative figures, toys, backpacks, among others), the franchise has not been satisfied with being present only in the entertainment industry. It has also had a considerable number of collaborations with food companies for a long time and now to this list we can add a line of ice cream.
It seems that the success of the products has been imminent, since more and more partners are added willing to show the image of Minecraft in their articles, so it is very likely that these ice creams -along with other foods- will not Be the latest inspired by Minecraft.
On the other hand, among the previous Minecraft commemorative food products we have Eggo waffles and Minecraft Creeper cereal. So, like many popular franchises, partnerships are fairly common, even if the market for the two companies is different. The latter implies beneficial decisions for both the game company and the manufacturers, so we reaffirm the idea that there are more and more delicious and creative products.
Minecraft ice creams are low in calories
Considering that the vast player base that enjoys Minecraft around the world is subject to a wide range of ages, from young children to adults, it makes sense that the food is aimed at several specific audiences. And in this particular case, those who wish to maintain their healthy eating habits, these ice creams are a good opportunity to enjoy a dessert that is not caloric enough.
Snack brand N!CK’S and Minecraft recently teamed up to create a line of Minecraft ice cream, with new flavors inspired by the sandbox. There are four flavors in total, and each of them is based on some food and even item that appears in Minecraft. So far the flavors are: Enchanted Apple Pie, Cake Blocka, Peanot Choklad Glowdust, and Emerald Minta.
As mentioned above, they are lower in calories than conventional ice cream and have no added sugars, making them suitable for certain diets as they only have 4-5 carbs per pint. In relation to Minecraft, the pints are presented as square containers that simulate Minecraft blocksinstead of the round-shaped pints offered by the company.
To the bad luck of many fans, it is not possible to find them in stores, since Minecraft ice cream flavors can only be purchased through an online page and are shipped to the buyer’s home. Each pint costs $9.99, though interesting shoppers can get a bonus if they pick up one of the company’s flavor packs, including an additional complimentary non-Minecraft flavor. Of course, thanks to the frozen nature of the product and the shipping option, it means fans won’t have to buy these limited-release products from second-hand vendors.
On the other hand, the N!CK’S company has existed since 2017, however it has managed to position its products by becoming the “number one direct-to-consumer pint ice cream delivery brand in the United States since July 2021.” Also, in the press release announcing the Minecraft Ice Cream collaboration, N!CK’S explains that since both companies started in Sweden, this was essential for them to achieve good communication when carrying out this collaborative project.
