Video Game-Inspired Ice Creams

NICK'S and Minecraft Drop the Square Pint Collection

— September 21, 2022 — Lifestyle
Swedish treat imprint NICK'S works in collaboration with video Minecraft on the new Square Pint collection. It is made up of limited-edition light ice creams that channel both contributing efforts. NICK'S uses its patented food science expertise to create the square-shaped dessert. It is a healthier alternative to the full-fat ice creams that cater to the gaming community.

There are four flavors in total, all of which are keto-friendly -- this includes Emerald Minta, Cake Blocka, Peanot Choklat Glowdust, and Enchanted Apple Pie. Speaking about the collection, NICK'S CEO Carlos Altschul states “Bringing Minecraft to life in our latest N!CK’s light ice cream flavors and unique packaging was a dream come true for our team. We are beyond excited to be partnering with Minecraft to share the limited-edition collection with their community and beyond."
