ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Eat ice cream. Support culture. It's that simple with Culture Republick™, the first premium light ice cream brand with probiotics on a mission to support culture both inside and out. Beyond having live probiotic cultures in the ice cream, the brand aims to support culture in everything it does. The new brand collaborates with emerging artists to design each pint, giving these artists a new canvas for their work, complete with their signature and information on pack. Additionally, 10 percent of the brand's profits will support the arts in local communities, with all charitable donations made possible by the Unilever Foundation.
"Culture Republick was created with a distinct purpose in mind," said Leslie Miller, Marketing Director of Ice Cream at Unilever. "We believe that humanity could use a bit more brightness. By combining our passions for culture and ice cream, we intend to do our part in making people feel more balanced, inspired and connected."
Culture Republick is currently available in seven unique flavors and is the first premium light ice cream brand with probiotics. Each pint contains three billion live active cultures, 400 – 500 calories, 16 – 18 grams of protein, 11 – 12 grams of fiber and no artificial sweeteners. The unexpected flavor combinations include:
- Milk & Honey
- The new classic. A low-key luxurious sweet cream light ice cream swirled with wildflower honey.
- Pack art by Joe Geis, an artist, designer and woodworker based in Brooklyn. Joe's artwork is all about movement and balance.
- Turmeric Chai & Cinnamo
