The always good avocado brand’s 2024 Big Game marketing campaign invites football fans to make their legendary game-watching parties better with fresh guac
DALLAS, Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Avocados From Mexico BB #:371130, the number one selling avocado brand in the U.S., is kicking off its national shopper marketing campaign ahead of the 2024 Big Game. This year, the brand has a fresh take that shoppers will love: Avocados From Mexico is partnering with football, food and reality TV star, Jesse Palmer, to encourage shoppers to host a Better Bowl – a game-day viewing party made better with plenty of guac.
Avocados From Mexico is #AlwaysGood and makes everything better including the Big Game. Not only do fresh Mexican avocados taste good, they’re also good for you1 and they bring the good times on game day! With nearly two-and-a-half billion pounds of avocados imported from Mexico annually2 the Big Game remains the number one occasion where avocados and guacamole are served and prepared3. In fact, for the last five years, retailers have seen an average 16% lift in EQ volume the week of the Big Game4 and avocados increase basket size during the Big Game by an average of $453. So, there’s no riper time to reach shoppers and football fans than the Big Game.
The campaign includes QR codes on in-store displays that shoppers can follow to score chances to win exciting prizes, including cash back on avocado purchases and exclusive autographed items. As part of the tasty promotion, shoppers will find hosting ideas and party tips from Jesse Palmer along with game-winning guac recipes for Big Game celebrations.
“My favorite way to enjoy the Big Game is with family and friends, so I love hosting a Big Game viewing party every year,” said Jesse Palmer. “No game day celebration in my house is complete without guac, which is why I’m excited to be teaming up with Avocados From Mexico to help fans host Better Bowl watch parties with fresh guacamole!”
Retailers are encouraged to sign up now for their free Big Game attention-getting merchandising displays featuring Jesse Palmer, available while supplies last to bring the program to customers and take in-store excitement to the next level.
“It’s no secret that guac and football are a match made in heaven,” said Stephanie Bazan, Senior Vice President of Commercial Strategy and Execution for Avocados From Mexico. “Guacamole is, after all, the number one use for avocados and there is nothing like serving a perfect bowl of guac at any Big Game viewing party. That’s why we’re excited to team up with the ultimate host, Jesse Palmer, to inspire shoppers to host a Better Bowl with guacamole made with fresh Avocados From Mexico.”
Beginning in January, the program will remind shoppers why Avocados From Mexico are a top-scoring Big Game snack through:
- Exciting prizes: After purchasing four avocados, shoppers can spin the virtual wheel for a chance to win signed footballs from Jesse Palmer and other great prizes.
- Big Game Savings: Consumers can get $1 back when they purchase four avocados
