Be a homegating hero.

From the stadium to tailgating and homegating, college football brings fans together like no other—they love socializing and staying connected for the love of the game. Farm Rich was looking to step up their game during this occasion. Knowing that snacking occasions represent 80% of their Frozen Snack category dollars, we needed to gain a greater share by tapping into the college football occasion and raising the brand’s relevance among younger consumers.

Supported by our basket data and strategic brand fit, Farm Rich and Dr. Pepper urged young, passionate fans to “Be The Homegating Hero.” Together, the two flavor powerhouses delivered in-store excitement with sampling and POS, drove in-store and online conversion, high margins, and bigger baskets with a heroic snacking solution, and built engagement with social media that spoke our audience’s language: Food Hacks.

The insights told us shoppers eat frozen snacks on four distinct occasions, including entertaining. And their snacks need to be all about flavor and fun. That’s why Dr. Pepper is the #1 choice among consumers looking to treat themselves with a carbonated soft drink. So what better brand for Farm Rich to team up with? With both brands as key players, we could give our consumers the perfect “treat yourself” solution for their homegating events.
