1% for the Planet and Nicey Treat – Making Summer Cool Again
As iconic frozen summer treats go, there are a few. Vermont has Creemee’s, Pennsylvania has Rita’s Italian Ice and now Indiana has Nicey Treat.
Nicey Treat, a new 1% member company, sells cool and flavorful handmade treats for those with a hankering for something sweet yet completely natural. According to Nicey Treat founder, Jeff Patrick, “…each Nicey is made with all natural ingredients some of which include, grass-fed milk, agave syrup, and organic evaporated cane sugar.” Jeff goes on to say, “…having the ability to make something that reminds me of my childhood with ingredients that I can pronounce is really special.”
Jeff believes that “being nice to our planet is equally as important as being nice to our bodies,” so “becoming a 1% for the Planet member was a no-brainer.” As an avid outdoorsman, Patrick saw that “…giving back to organizations that focus on environmental sustainability makes sense to [him] and [his] brand.” Perhaps you’ll see Nicey Treat spreading good karma to the karma on their “Nicecycle”, which allows the company to be mobile without causing harm to the environment.
Check them out in Indianapolis at Indy’s Kitchen or at events such as Zoobilation, Picnic for the Planet, and Orchard in Bloom. If you’re like me, and watering at the mouth already, just listen to these flavors: Strawberry Mint, Mango Ginger, Not-So-Hot Chocolate, and Avocado. And that’s just a few of the “melt-in-your-mouth” flavors Nicey Treat has to offer patrons this summer.
