Humdinger, the multi-category healthy snack company, has partnered with the King of Beers Budweiser, to launch three brand-new flavours of peanuts, in a deal brokered by IMG.
Available in all-American flavours including Smokey Texan BBQ, Buffalo Chicken Wings and Flame Grilled Ribs, the crispy coated peanuts have been crafted to pair with the smooth, crisp taste of Budweiser. Set to launch from 26 June at select UK supermarkets, prices will range from £1 for a 60g bag to £1.75 for a 150g bag.
Emma Perrett, marketing controller at Humdinger, Zertus, commented:“We are delighted to join forces with the Budweiser team to bring these products to market. This category has enjoyed strong sales in recent years and the increase in social gatherings and events like the FIFA World Cup coming up, this will no doubt continue. We are hoping to introduce new shoppers to nuts with this iconic brand and these exciting, bold flavours that are the perfect snack to enjoy with an ice-cold Bud.”
Georgia Doe, senior brand manager at Budweiser, stated: “We are thrilled to be working with Humdinger to launch our very own crispy coated flavoured nuts. Expanding into more occasions is hugely important for the brand and these nuts were developed to pair perfectly with the smooth, crisp taste of Budweiser”
Natalie Horne, associate vice president of Licensing at IMG, said: “We are excited about this new collaboration between the famous Budweiser beer and Humdinger. Combining one of the world’s favourite premium beers with the quality, integrity and sustainability values of Humdinger, we believe shoppers will love this new snack and we are looking forward to its launch next month.”
Budweiser is the official sponsor of the 2022 FIFA World Cup and of the England Football team and the official beer partner of the Premier League.
