ThermaFreeze Products Corporation Announces That Applelicious Adopts the Use of ThermaFreeze Refrigerant

THEODORE, AL--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - ThermaFreeze Products Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TFZP) announced today that Applelicious, Inc. has incorporated the use of ThermaFreeze™ Refrigerant to ship their famous gourmet chocolate apples and candies.

"Applelicious serves the high-end gift food market with its signature gourmet apples. During lab and field tests performed to Applelicious specs, the apples were found to be very sensitive to heat and were needed to be kept cold but not frozen during shipment," said Joe Murray, President of ThermaFreeze. "During testing we were able to maintain the quality and freshness they desired, while providing Applelicious a significant savings in shipping cost while reducing the loss of product during transit."

Dayna Blankenship, Business Manager for Applelicious, Inc., stated, "We ship gourmet apples all across the United States and into Canada; our clients consist of both wholesalers and retailers, challenging us with the task of shipping many different sizes of packages throughout the day. With the ThermaFreeze pads being flexible even when frozen and able to be cut to fit any size box has proven to be both efficient and cost effective."

"Our Gourmet Apples are extremely sensitive to heat and we have found ThermaFreeze's products to be very successful in maintaining the proper shipping temperature of our apples this summer," Blankenship added.
