Too Yumm! begins year with marketing blitz to woo Indians with desi flavours
Too Yumm!, the baked snacking brand from Guiltfree Industries, the FMCG division of the RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, has unveiled its latest marketing campaign with brand ambassador Virat Kohli, themed ‘Har Craving Ka Jawaab’. The 4-part ad campaign reveals India’s favourite flavours according to Virat Kohli – Noodle Masala, Dahi Papdi Chaat, Chilli Chataka and Chilli Achaari. With Too Yumm! having perfectly represented each of these Indian flavour cravings through its products, the four-part ad series conceptualised by Mullen Lintas Mumbai positions Too Yumm! as the perfect guilt-free solution to all cravings, irrespective of where or when they arise.
Having established a strong core around ‘healthy bingeing’, Too Yumm! now wants to address the primary driver of the snacking industry – taste, with a belief that an offering with strong taste and health benefits is an unbeatable combination in the Indian snacking category. Indians tend to have a strong craving for foods like chaat, achaar and noodles that are packed with flavour and spice.
Virat Kohli has been the face of Too Yumm! since the brand’s inception, and through this latest campaign the food loving cricketer reveals his har craving ka jawaab. Thecampaign films showcase Virat Kohli in various roles and situations – from driving a young couple who are craving Chilli Achaari on a road trip, reminiscing about old college memories and ‘hostel wale’ noodles, having a chaat craving during movie nights to adding a hint of Chilli Chataka to a formal dinner. The campaign films deliver a strong message that no matter where or when a craving arises, it can be aptly satisfied by opening a pack of Too Yumm!. Being a health icon too, Virat is seen satisfying his taste cravings without having to worry about or compromise on his fitness goals as Too Yumm! snacks are all baked.
