Our Commitment to Sustainability

ColdSnap™ pods are made from Aluminum and (unlike plastic) are infinitely recyclable.

ColdSnap™ pods will result in a 25% to 50% reduction in carbon emissions associated with making and distributing ice cream.

ColdSnap Founder Matt Fonte reading with two daughters

Our Story

When nightly bedtime stories grew dull for Matt Fonte and his two daughters, Sierra and Fiona, they decided to swap magic tree house and fairytale princess books for a more creative past-time: invention journals.  Topping the list of problems to solve: how do we create a better ice cream machine for at home use - one without all the hassle?  The girls considered a Keurig-style machine that could generate ice cream in 60 seconds or less, and without the mess.  Matt, a serial entrepreneur, saw potential in this idea.  In 2018, Sigma Phase, Corp. was formed with a singular objective to transform the way frozen confections are produced, transported, purchased and enjoyed!  Please enjoy ColdSnap™.

Frequently Asked Questions

ColdSnap™ is a rapid freezing appliance that produces single servings of frozen confections and frozen beverages in less than 2 minutes.

The ColdSnap™ machine accepts shelf-stable, ambient temperature, ColdSnap™ pods – and then freezes and dispenses the contents of those ColdSnap™ pods in less than 120 seconds. No preparation of ColdSnap™ pods is required and no cleanup of the ColdSnap™ machine is necessary.

ColdSnap™ is capable of making single-servings of:

  • Ice cream
  • Frozen yogurt
  • Frozen coffees
  • Frozen smoothies
  • Frozen healthy shakes
  • Frozen cocktails
  • Slushies
The initial ColdSnap™ offering will include single-servings of ice cream in various flavors.  Other food & beverage categories will be introduced over time.

Our mission is to transform the way that ice cream and other frozen confections are produced, transported, purchased & consumed.

ColdSnap™ pods are shelf-stable and can be shipped at ambient temperature. As a result, the ColdSnap™ system is independent of the expensive, unreliable, and environmentally unfriendly "cold chain" that is used to bring factory-frozen ice cream and other frozen products to market. ColdSnap™ will capture and grow the already-massive global ice cream market - particularly in geographies where the cold chain is weak and unreliable.

ColdSnap™ will revolutionize the direct-to-consumer ice cream experience. Ice cream can now be shipped direct-to-consumer (both homes and commercial consumers) without the use of dry ice.

ColdSnap™ will bring a superior, personalized, frozen confectionery experience to consumers. Great tasting ice cream and other frozen confections can be prepared on-the-spot, in personalized servings, and free of messy preparation and cleanup.

The ColdSnap™ system makes frozen confections with demonstrably smaller ice crystal sizes than store-bought products. Ice cream made from the ColdSnap™ system is creamier and has a smoother mouthfeel than ice cream that undertakes a deep freeze. ColdSnap™ frozen yogurt has an almost velvety texture. ColdSnap frozen confections (Margaritas, Pina Coladas, Daiquiris) have a silky consistency that is difficult to replicate in any home or bar. In short, ColdSnap™ makes a smoother, better product.

The ColdSnap™ machine uses a proprietary, high-powered, refrigeration system to rapidly freeze and dispense the contents of the ColdSnap™ pod.

To make a frozen confection, the user inserts a ColdSnap™ pod into the ColdSnap™ machine. The ColdSnap machine then reads the QR code located on the ColdSnap™ pod to determine the optimal freezing parameters for that specific ColdSnap™ pod. The user then follows the easy display prompts on the ColdSnap™ machine LED display to make the frozen product.

The ColdSnap™ system is ideal for both commercial settings and homes.

The ColdSnap™ system is a one-of-a-kind, on-premise, benefit for businesses that want to encourage and reward employees and customers. Think: morning frozen smoothies to jump-start the day or ice cream as a pick-me-up in the afternoon.

The ColdSnap™ system is also ideal for convenience stores and other commercial settings that wish to place a ColdSnap™ machine in order to generate revenue and profit through the subsequent sale of ColdSnap™ pods. The ColdSnap™ system has clear merchandising and cost benefits relative to other in-store foodservice equipment options: ColdSnap™ pods do not have to be kept refrigerated and the ColdSnap™ machine does not have to be plumbed for installation, or cleaned once installed.

Finally, the ColdSnap™ system is perfect for any home that wants better-tasting, fresher, frozen desserts and beverages – but without the mess of traditional ice cream makers and blenders.

Simply plug in the ColdSnap™ machine and follow the on-screen instructions. No plumbing is required for the ColdSnap™ machine set up. No consumables (e.g., cartridges, filters) are required of the ColdSnap™ system.

Depending on the selected ice cream or frozen confection product (food & beverage category and flavor within that category), the ColdSnap™ system can take anywhere from 60-120 seconds.

The ColdSnap™ machine dimensions are: 9"W x 17.25"H x 17.5"D. The ColdSnap machine weighs ~50 lbs.

ColdSnap™ pods are not yet available for purchase.

Our plan is to conduct a small commercial launch of ColdSnap™ in the second half of 2021, with a broader launch in 2022. We will initially be selling the ColdSnap™ system direct-to-businesses and direct-to-consumers through our ColdSnap™ website.

ColdSnap™ pods are made of infinitely recyclable aluminum and may be recycled just like any aluminum beverage can.

No need to refrigerate the ColdSnap™ pods. However, if you choose to keep the pods refrigerated, then there is no negative effect.

ColdSnap™ pods have a minimum shelf-life of 9 months. Depending on the product, some ColdSnap™ pods will have a longer shelf-life (e.g., up to 12 months).

The ColdSnap™ system can make an infinite number of continuous frozen confections and does not require a "re-cooling" phase.
