Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson Interviewed on FOX Business Mornings With Maria, Discusses Ice Cream Category Disruption and Nightfood Ice Cream; Quarterly Investor Call Scheduled
Tarrytown, NY, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Sean Folkson, CEO of Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the innovative company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, was interviewed on Mornings With Maria on FOX Business on Tuesday, February 19th.
While the anchors enjoyed pints of Nightfood on set, Folkson discussed the size of America’s nighttime ice cream obsession, stating that tens of millions of Americans are currently eating ice cream before bed on any given night. Folkson also addressed what it means for Nightfood ice cream to be “sleep-friendly”, which includes characteristics like lower sugar, higher protein, more fiber, less fat, fewer calories, the inclusion of minerals such as calcium and magnesium, lower lactose content, as well as the addition of certain enzymes and amino acids.
Nightfood does not contain sleep-aid substances or drugs, and it’s not a dietary supplement. It’s simply a better-for-you and more sleep-friendly choice for the tens of millions of Americans already eating ice cream on any given night.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be invited onto Mornings With Maria at such an early stage in our exciting launch,” shared Folkson. “We certainly anticipated a media fascination with the category we’re pioneering, sleep-friendly foods and, specifically, nighttime ice cream…but the speed with which the media whirlwind has come since we won the 2019 Product of the Year award for ice cream has surpassed my expectations by months.”
The interview can be viewed on the FOX Business website.
