Tarrytown NY, May 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Nightfood, Inc. (NGTF), the better-for-you snack company targeting the $50 billion consumers spend on nighttime snacks, is pleased to announce a new social media engagement campaign to increase communication and interaction with its stakeholders.
With an impressive shareholder base that recently surpassed 5,000 investors, Management believes this growing, loyal, and enthusiastic group of investors can be a tremendous asset as it continues to add points of distribution. Nightfood is already in major divisions of Kroger and Albertsons. The Company has announced that two additional chains are expected to be adding Nightfood in June, one of which has already placed their initial purchase orders and been shipped.
“It’s exciting when investors become customers, and customers become investors,” commented Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “So many of them share our passion for turning Nightfood into the next great consumer brand. What we’re doing is easy for everybody to understand and relate to. Anybody wrestling with nighttime cravings for decades, like I have, can get behind what we’re doing and champion for the brand. It helps that we have an award-winning product line that tastes great and has so many nutritional benefits.”

“Obviously a large active and engaged investor base can be a tremendous asset for a new consumer goods launch,” added Folkson. “What other emerging consumer brand has literally thousands of owners championing their delicious ice cream to friends, family, and neighbors? In today’s hyper-connected world, this offers a distinct advantage, and is one that we will now begin to strategically apply.”
About Nightfood Holdings:
Nightfood Holdings, Inc. (NGTF), owns Nightfood, Inc. and MJ Munchies, Inc.
Nightfood has expanded distribution for its ice cream into major divisions of the two largest supermarket chains in the United States: Kroger (Harris Teeter), and Albertsons Companies (Jewel-Osco and Shaw’s and Star Markets), as well as Lowe’s Foods and other independent retailers.
Nightfood won the 2019 Product of the Year award in the ice cream category in a Kantar survey of over 40,000 consumers. Nightfood was also named Best New Ice Cream in the 2019 World Dairy Innovation Awards.
Nightfood has been endorsed as the Official Ice Cream of the American Pregnancy Association and is the recommended ice cream for pregnant women. There are approximately 3,000,000 pregnant women in the United States at any given time, and ice cream is the single most-widely reported pregnancy craving. With more calcium, magnesium, zinc, fiber, and protein, less sugar and a lower glycemic profile than regular ice cream, Nightfood has been identified as a better choice for expectant mothers.
Nightfood is not just for pregnant women. Over 80% of Americans snack regularly at night, resulting in an estimated 700M+ nighttime snack occasions weekly, and an annual spend on night snacks of over $50 billion dollars, the majority of it on options that are understood to be both unhealthy, and disruptive to sleep quality.
Scientific research indicates these unhealthy nighttime cravings are driven by human biology. Willpower is also weakest at night, contributing to unhealthy night snacking behavior, and the majority of night snackers report feeling both guilty and out-of-control when it comes to their nighttime snacking.
Because unhealthy night snacking is believed to be biologically driven, and not a trend or a fad, management believes the category of nighttime-specific nutrition, which Nightfood is pioneering, will be a billion-dollar category.
MJ Munchies, Inc. was formed in 2018 as a new, wholly owned subsidiary of Nightfood Holdings, Inc. to capitalize on legally compliant opportunities in the CBD and marijuana edibles and related spaces. The Company is seeking licensing opportunities to market such products under the brand name “Half-Baked”, for which they’ve successfully secured trademark rights.
