Jack Nicklaus Charitable Scoop

Golf icon Jack Nicklaus and The Schwan Food Company have teamed up with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Jack Nicklaus Ice Cream is celebrating its first anniversary with a commitment to contribute to this national non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. The ice cream brand was already a proud supporter of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. “I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve done together with Schwan over the past year,” Jack Nicklaus said. “My wife Barbara and I have a passion for philanthropy and, especially, supporting pediatric care through our work in South Florida and nationally with our Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. Our family has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with CMN Hospitals in recent years, and because Schwan shares our passion for helping children, together we now look forward to advancing the mission of CMN Hospitals nationwide through the sales of our ice cream.” Dimitrios Smyrnios, CEO of The Schwan Food Company, adds, “In working with Jack, Barbara and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Schwan will have the special opportunity to help children and families in communities across the country. And let’s not forget that everyone loves ice cream, so we have the added benefit of putting smiles on kids’ faces.”

Frosty Cold

Frosty Cold

Frosty Cold Technologies has developed a Zero Power Cooling (ZPC) coolant solution that can provide perpetual chilling without any source of power whatsoever. The patented innovation is a powdered coolant agent that initially transforms into a sub-freezing product when any kind of water is added to it – even sea or ocean water. The Frosty Cold Tech coolant is reusable inside its packaging as it automatically regenerates via evaporation and can be refreshed hundreds of times over. When the water evaporates, the coolant dries out and retains 100% of its cooling ability for future use. Frosty Cold helps provide a uniquely efficient and effective cold chain solution for many industries including the frozen dessert segment. The product can be adapted to any custom shape/volume, flexible or rigid packaging, and can even be formulated to achieve any freezing point or temperature desired. It is 100% recyclable and contains no toxic chemicals. For information, visit

Coffee Extreme

Haver Coffee Extreme

The Coffee Extreme solves the most common problem with continuous coffee service events: Keeping the coffee hot. Using sophisticated vacuum insulation technology, the Haber Coffee Extreme keeps coffee above 165°F for 24 hours. “Our engineers spent a lot of time on this project with the goal of solving the on-going challenge that caterers and banquet managers face every day – keeping the hot coffee hot for extended periods of time. Standard insulated urns don’t last long enough and are too difficult to manage, and sterno urns burn the coffee,” said David Haber, President of DW Haber. “There is no pre-heat required, no canned fuel necessary to keep temperatures up and it fits almost all brew systems. Operators can brew directly into the Coffee Extreme and display in our stainless steel cover up design. Just brew, place and walk away!” Coffee Extreme is available in a 2-gallon size and with a stainless steel cover-up that is stylish, fitting perfectly with many of the DW Haber buffet and riser systems. It functions perfectly indoors and outdoors. For more information on the Haber Coffee Extreme and other new line of Vacuum Coffee Urns, visit or contact the company directly at 718-993-6405.
