TARRYTOWN, NY, Oct. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Nightfood, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), the company pioneering the projected multi-billion dollar nighttime snacking category recently received the results of an independent market research study.
New Jersey-based VS Research was commissioned by the Company to survey 300 consumers who regularly consume leading “better-for-you” ice cream brands.
“Over 67% of consumers said they would definitely buy Nightfood if it were available where they shop,” commented Lisa Brick, Senior Researcher of VS Research, who conducted the study. “And, over 80% of consumers indicated Nightfood ice cream was highly relevant to their ‘wants and needs’, giving it 4 or 5 stars.”
“Obviously this purchase intent information gets enthusiastically shared with the major retailers we’re meeting with, and should factor quite heavily in their decision to place the product in their stores,” explained Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “New information has been received since our investor call last week. We’re now 100% confident Nightfood will have meaningful retail distribution starting in Q1.”
In addition to the quantitative metrics gathered, open ended responses were collected:
- “Just the fact that it says it’s nighttime ice cream, that’s like giving you permission to eat ice cream at night”
- “It has healthy ingredients which makes me want to buy it more and enjoy eating ice cream. I love this brand already!”
- “I am excited that it’s recommended by sleep experts”
Approximately half of all consumers report regularly snacking on ice cream at night. Nightfood’s nutrition and sleep experts have crafted better-for-you and delicious ice cream flavors and recipes that are more appropriate for nighttime consumption. Nightfood flavors set to hit shelves in Q1 include Midnight Chocolate, Full Moon Vanilla, After-Dinner Mint Chip, Cookies n’ Dreams, Cherry Eclipse, Milk & Cookie Dough, Cold-Brew Decaf, and Breakfast in Bed.
Working to secure additional retail footprint for the launch, Management has meetings remaining in October with two of the top fifteen retailers in the country. More retailer meetings are scheduled in November and beyond.
