P&G’s new Bounty product rolls across America
CINCINNATI Procter & Gamble’s new Bounty Huge Roll is on a journey to help those in need, with the paper towel brand pledging to make a $50,000 product donation to five local food banks nationwide with the help of consumers in local communities.
The Bounty Huge Roll is making stops in San Antonio, Texas; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Cincinnati; Natick, Mass., and North Bergen, N.J., and Bounty will donate the paper towels raised for the food banks in each local market at the end of the cart’s cross-country journey. At each stop, consumers who come out to see the Bounty shopping cart will be able to pick up coupons for the new Bounty Huge Roll to test in their own homes.
“Just as the new Bounty Huge Roll aligns with our commitment to provide consumers with huge value, our goal through this campaign is to make a huge difference in the lives of those in need,” said Chris Brown, Procter & Gamble marketing brand manager, Bounty. “Local food banks are critical to serving people in need in communities across the country, and our hope in pledging to raise $50,000 worth of paper towels, is to incite people into action so together we can make a difference.”
Yoplait goes Greek
MINNEAPOLIS Yoplait is debuting its newest yogurt product in the dairy aisle.
Available in four delicious flavors, strawberry, blueberry, honey vanilla and plain, Yoplait Greek has a unique thick and creamy texture. The new yogurt is available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $1.19 per 6 oz. cup. Each 6 oz. cup plays 12g of protein and no fat.
To celebrate its new Greek yogurt, Yoplait has teamed up with new epic feature film, “Clash of the Titans,” and actress Izabella Miko, who plays Athena.
“I loved playing Greek Goddess Athena – it definitely brought me closer to my own inner goddess. I admired her strength and independence,” said Miko, “and of course she was the goddess of wisdom, so something wise I do is take care of myself. That’s why I love the new Yoplait Greek yogurt – it tastes great and it’s so good for you – packed with protein, high in calcium and vitamin D.”
