Kellogg’s launches the new and improved Honey Loops
Mumbai, April 19 2012: Kellogg’s is all set to introduce the new and improved Honey Loops. The popular breakfast cereal for kids with the delicious taste of honey is now made with wholegrain. Kellogg’s Honey Loops is a fun-shaped, crunchy, multi-grain, honey-flavoured breakfast cereal that is a source of fibre and has 11 essential vitamins and minerals.
The new and improved product with the goodness of wholegrain also offers multigrain advantage with oats, corn, barley and wheat. Mothers can now give their children a tasty and nourishing breakfast that will make their mornings happier. It is not just yummy to taste and crunchy to bite, but also a wholesome breakfast choice for children.
The national launch campaign is led by an energetic and fun television commercial that captures honey bees dancing to a catchy Bollywood tune, aiming to appeal to kids and their mothers alike. Commenting on the launch, Sangeeta Pendurkar, Managing Director, Kellogg India says, “Kellogg’s Honey Loops now made with Whole Grain is yet another step to encourage kids to starting the day with a tasty and nourishing breakfast. We believe that new Kellogg’s Honey Loops made with goodness of 4 grains will help ensure happier mornings as it will be loved by kids for its honeylicious taste and trusted by mothers for its whole grain and multigrain goodness. We are positive that this launch will receive a great response.”
Explaining the thought behind the new campaign, Nandita Chalam, Vice President & Executive Creative Director of JWT states, “The Kellogg’s Honey Loops TVC is a fun film directed at children. We have used a Bollywood track - Uff teri ada- and the action is also choreographed in the style of a Bollywood song with Honey Bee being the heroine and the others her back up dancers. The colours, music and food shots all combine to convey that this is a ‘honeylicious’ breakfast cereal made especially for kids by Honey Bee herself. The animation is world class as children today are exposed to great animation films from around the world.”
Adding to the insight, Samarth Shrivastava, Vice President & Client Services Director of JWT mentions, “We wanted to convey that Honey Loops, is a honey flavoured yummy breakfast for kids. So we used a popular Bollywood number to convey this message. Why Bollywood? Because research in India shows that Bollywood is very popular, especially Bollywood songs. Moreover we have used 3D animation where we see honeybees doing a choreographed song and dance while procuring Honey Loops for our protagonist. So animation with Bollywood will definitely be a magic combination for Honey Loops.”
