ThermaFreeze Products™ Acquires Tugger(C) License for Its New Line of Lunch Box Freezer Packs

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - Les Wilson, President of Licensed 2 Thrill, LLC announced the signing of a multi-year agreement between ThermaFreeze™ Products Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TFZP) and Animated Family Films for use of their Tugger© character brand on a new line of lunch box ThermaFreeze™ cooler packs.

Consumers will receive a free DVD of the animated Tugger movie with the purchase of a package of ThermaFreeze reusable lunch box cooling pads. The worldwide release of "Tugger-The Jeep 4x4 Who Wanted to Fly," features the voices of Jim Belushi and Scott "Carrot Top" Thompson. A 13 part Tugger TV series is in development and will begin airing in 2010. The airing network has not been named as of this release.

"This association is a great fit for our new line of reusable thin line freeze packs. Tugger©, www.tuggerjeep.com, appeals to the perfect target audience, concerned Moms with young children that carry their lunch to school or play," stated Kyle Brown, CEO of ThermaFreeze Products. The product will be available in retail stores around the country in freestanding PDQ displays.

According to Johan Sturm, President of the Coral Springs, Florida-based Animated Family Films, "The completion of this agreement reinforces our efforts to build the Tugger© franchise into a highly recognizable brand and fits well with our long-term strategic plans. We will be announcing additional activities around Tugger© and our other brand platforms in the near future."

ThermaFreeze Products (www.thermafreeze.com), a New Jersey-based company, holds patents for a line of reusable freezer and heat packs that are shipped dry, hydrated and cooled or heated on-site just before use. "Significant savings are achieved by not trucking water-filled gel packs to the retailers, resulting in significantly reduced ground shipping costs and lower carbon emissions," he states. "The freezer packs are economical and offer a much longer temperature reduction than ice with no leaky mess to clean up or spoil the food," stated Brown. He also states, "The product is consumer and environmentally friendly and we want our consumers to recycle wherever possible."

According to Les Wilson, "this is a great opportunity for a licensee and a licensor to work together with the licensing company. L2T not only provided ThermaFreeze with a quality license but also signed them to a long term agreement with our L2T Direct affiliate to assist them in achieving widespread retail distribution of this product line."
