It is beginning to heat up in Las Vegas and I know I love shakes during this time of year.  But to get that shake, you either have to go someplace that sells shakes (only to have it melt) or buy the ingredients and blend up at home.  But I have discovered (okay I was informed) of a new shake in single-serving containers that don’t require a blender or freezer in your car or sitting in some long line waiting at a drive-through window. 

MolliCoolz is in your local freezer aisles this summer with its new Shakers that combine new-to-the-world ice cream technology, milk and the shake of the hand to produce the perfect milkshake. 

Shakers, the latest creation in MolliCoolz's frozen ice cream product line, are distributed as single-serving containers filled with pelletized (as in pellets) ice cream beads. You simply add milk to the Shakers container, replace the lid and "shake it like you mean it" for just seconds. The pelletized ice cream beads, frozen through the aid of liquid nitrogen technology, are specially formulated to soften and mix with milk producing a milkshake every time. 

"Our revolutionary Shakers are changing the way milkshakes are enjoyed in households across America," said Bryan Freeman, MolliCoolz founder, president, and CEO. "The Shakers are a great snack for the whole family, combining our state-of-the-art ice cream beads, milk and a few good shakes to produce a great milkshake within seconds." Freeman has been very successful in the snack-food industry with Snack Works, hand-twisted pretzels, with his company selling over 40 million a year to retailers such as Wal-Mart and Cinnabon. 

Longtime gaming executive and tavern operator Blake L. Sartini, Chairman and CEO of Sartini Enterprises Inc., is also a big supporter of Shakers.  "As an investor, we are pleased to see the widespread enthusiasm surrounding this truly incredible product," Sartini said. "The initial sales results and extraordinary acceptance of the Shakers product demonstrates that consumers have embraced this new technology and validates our vision to expand beyond milkshakes." 

Shakers are currently available in four flavors: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and cookies ‘n’ cream. Best of all, they are not messy – so no more dripped ice cream! 


Distribution of the product includes national and regional retail grocery chains including all Wal-Mart Supercenters. Shakers are priced under $2 each per milkshake. Let’s go have a shake!
