Mccoy’s Muchos back on TV with £1m investment
Following huge success in 2019, KP Snacks announces a further £1m marketing push for McCoy’s Muchos, the feisty Mexican-inspired tortilla range.
To continue momentum for KP Snacks biggest ever NPD, the campaign will drive awareness and anticipation amongst consumers looking for a flavoursome snack to spice up sharing occasions.
Responding to the growing popularity of Mexican flavours, KP Snacks launched the innovative half-moon shaped McCoy’s Muchos in January 2019. The pack-a-punch tortilla crisps have proved hugely popular with consumers. The range has been ranked as one of the top 10 FMCG product launches of 2019, with sales reaching £13m RSV in the first 13 months since launch. McCoys Muchos has also reignited growth in the tortilla market, contributing 52% of value growth in the last year and commanding 5% of the total tortilla market.
Now Muchos is back on TV to continue driving awareness and trial. Launching on 2 March, the playful creative returns to TV and VOD, featuring animated characters, including Mexican wrestlers, a mariachi band and DJ Burro our superstar DJ donkey. The strapline “McCoy’s Muchos. When Mexican Flavour Calls” will remind consumers that McCoy’s Muchos can liven up any fiesta, perfect for sharing with family and friends.
The campaign will also be supported by in-store activity with £1 PMP promotions available until March.
