Four limited-edition varieties of ice cream inspired by Minecraft's in-game items and blocks will be made available to players.
Over the course of its existence, Minecraft has collaborated with a number of snack and food brands, and now it's adding ice cream to that list. It appears that the partnerships between Minecraft and its partners have been successful, and it's probable that fans will receive more Minecraft-inspired food in the future.
There is a wide range of ages playing Minecraft, from the very young to the elderly, therefore it makes sense for there to be a variety of food brands and sorts based on the game. Those who are attempting to make healthy choices should find these ice creams to be an excellent option.
These new Minecraft ice cream flavours are a collaboration between Minecraft and snack brand N!CK'S. Each of the four tastes is based on a meal or item from the Minecraft video game. Enchanted Apple Pie, Cake Blocka, Peanot Choklad Glowdust, and Emerald Minta are the available flavours. Notably, these are fewer in calories and contain no added sugar, making them suitable for a ketogenic diet with only 4-5 grammes of carbohydrates per pint. In keeping with the Minecraft theme, the company's pints are packaged in square containers like Minecraft bricks.
Fans who were hoping to locate these in stores will be out of luck. The Minecraft ice cream flavours are exclusively available online, with home delivery. Each pint costs $9.99, but those who purchase any of the Minecraft-themed packages of tastes will receive a free additional flavour that is not Minecraft-themed. However, due to the frozen nature of the products and the shipping-only option, fans will not be forced to purchase these items from secondary vendors, who routinely overcharge for limited releases.
N!CK'S has only existed since 2017, yet the firm has already created waves with its products, becoming “the number one direct-to-consumer pint ice cream delivery brand in the United States since July 2021.” In addition, the N!CK'S Minecraft Ice Cream news release adds that both companies originated in Sweden, which presumably had a role in bringing them together.
Previous and current Minecraft food products include Eggo waffles and Minecraft Creeper Cereal. As with many other popular games, collaborations are prevalent and appear to be advantageous for both game developers and manufacturers. However, it is somewhat uncommon to find a healthy diet-friendly option, so individuals who often cannot indulge in the snacks typically associated with gaming have a new option here.
