ORANGE, Calif. — With the nation prepping for football’s biggest occasion, the makers of the WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE brand — the ultimate game-day dip — are breaking out a new snacking playbook just in time for the Big Game and two perennial favorites are topping the lineup: pizza and guacamole!
A new study recently commissioned by America’s No.1 refrigerated guacamole brand assessed game day snacking habits and found that 74% of consumers are likely to eat guacamole and 91% are likely to eat pizza when the Big Game commences. However, a majority (83%) have never tried pairing the two foods together. To satisfy people’s curiosity and taste cravings, the makers of the WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE brand are picking 250 lucky fans to score big with free pizza and guacamole deliveries in Kansas City, MO and San Francisco, CA, the two cities still vying for pro football’s ultimate prize.
“A vast majority of people haven’t tried guacamole with pizza, but our study found that 94% of consumers like to experiment with their food and a good majority are open to it,” said Chris Monahan, brand manager of WHOLLY® products. “With over half of people admitting to love dipping their pizza in something and the latest food trends championing ‘melty mashups,’2 this unusual pairing is sure to be the snack combo that fans didn’t know they needed.”
Football fans and flavor seekers can head to GuacifyPizza.com for a chance to win free WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE product for a year. If your city plays in the Big Game, you could win free game day pizza and guac!
