Tarrytown, NY, Feb. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the innovative company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, is proud to announce Nightfood ice cream has earned media coverage from some of the largest online media outlets over the last few days.
Since the February 8th announcement that Nightfood won 2019 Product of the Year in the ice cream category, the brand has garnered coverage on FoodBeast, Bustle, Business Insider, BestProducts.com, Delish, PureWow, GuiltyEats, CookingLight, and more. The Best Products article was also featured on the front page of Yahoo.
“We knew the media would love this brand, and expect the coverage to continue,” remarked Tim Sullivan of T3 Shamrock, Nightfood’s PR agency. “It’s relatable, it’s compelling, and, best of all, and it’s ice cream. It’s also kicking off a new category of foods – “sleep friendly”, which is genuine news.”
“We’ll be announcing our first major retail chain next week,” added CEO Sean Folkson. “In a perfect world, all this media wouldn’t have started until after we were able to publicize where product is available. But, it’s not in our control that the media wanted to run with it. When you have a story, you meet the news where they are.”
On Friday, February 8, 2018, it was announced that Nightfood ice cream won the 2019 Product of the Year award for best new ice cream (as voted on by over 40,000 American consumers). The fact that this occurred on the eve of the national launch is what management believes triggered the recent publicity.
The Company has also now been contacted by multiple local media outlets who are planning to feature Nightfood when product is available in their local markets. Management has indicated since pre-launch that a high level of media interest and consumer word-of-mouth can be expected to support the national roll-out of this category-pioneering product.
