LOS ANGELES – Wonderful® Pistachios today announced the launch of a Big Game campaign to make game day snacking even easier, whether attending in person, or watching from home. For those traveling to the big game, or related viewing parties, a partnership with luxe rideshare service Alto will provide discounted transportation and delicious snacking around Los Angeles over the game day weekend. Football fans gearing up for game day at home can enter-to-win an entertainment system through a social media contest, get game day recipe inspiration on Pinterest, and stock up on healthy game day snacks at grocery retailers nationwide with larger-than-life football-themed displays.
“Football viewing has always been one of the top consumption occasions for Wonderful Pistachios, so we’re giving consumers near and far something to enjoy while watching the Big Game as it happens in our own backyard,” shared Diana Salsa, senior marketing director, Wonderful Pistachios. “In fact, one out of three Wonderful Pistachios consumers say they eat them while watching sports, with football being the most popular of the sports. You can crack open pistachios to take out some of that game day stress!”
The week leading up to the Big Game is one of the biggest retail sales weeks of the year for the Wonderful Pistachios brand1. Wonderful Pistachios is an ideal game day snack – they are a healthy crowd pleaser offering six grams of plant protein and three grams of fiber per each one ounce serving. With a variety of flavors, and both classic In-Shell and No Shells options, there is something for everyone. Wonderful Pistachios No Shells are now available in four award-winning flavors, including Sea Salt & Vinegar and BBQ, along with the Roasted & Salted and Lightly Salted varieties that consumers know and love.
