Retired professional golfer Jack Nicklaus teamed up with The Schwan Food Co., Marshall, Minn., to launched Jack Nicklaus ice cream, available in Warm Spiced Butter Pecan, Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl, Salted Caramel Toffee, Strawberry Lemonade, Triple Chocolate, Coffee and Donuts and Homemade Vanilla flavors.
“It’s no secret that I love ice cream,” Nicklaus says. “Needless to say, I have never had so much fun in the research and development of a product. The team at Schwan has a world-class product development center. Together, we have created a variety of flavors—all with real ingredients—for a quality, premium ice cream at a value price.”
The ice cream introduction extends the Nicklaus Cos. efforts to celebrate the life and lifestyle of Jack Nicklaus by introducing quality consumer products with a philanthropic tie-in.
"Jack's whole life is synonymous with excellence, family and charity, and our new collaboration with Schwan embodies all three values in a hand-picked selection of delicious ice cream flavors that also supports children's healthcare. What could possibly taste better?” adds Howard Milstein, co-chairman of Nicklaus Cos.
This pint-sized ice cream boasts a suggested retail price of $1.99, and will be available at Winn Dixie, Bi-Lo and Kroger stores in select markets.
