MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, March 4, 2013 – The penny may be gone, but there’s a brand new currency in town – the Tweet! The very first Tweet Shop in Canada is opening in Toronto to launch NEW Kellogg’s* All-Bran* Cranberries & Clusters cereal. At the All-Bran Tweet Shop brought to you by Kellogg, you simply have to Tweet using #AllBranTweetShop or post a message on Facebook about the cereal to score a free full-size box – no money required! Now that’s a “tweet” deal! Come check it out in Trinity Way at the Toronto Eaton Centre from Thursday, March 7 to Saturday, March 9, 2013.
Visitors to the Tweet Shop will be able to taste the new Kellogg’s All-Bran Cranberries & Clusters cereal and send messages about their experience from their own phones or tablets, or from one of the tablets on-hand. In exchange, they will receive a full-sized box of the cereal to take home. Taste. Tweet. Enjoy. It’s that easy.
“Kellogg’s All-Bran Cranberries and Clusters cereal is an innovative new product and we wanted to introduce it in an equally innovative way,” says Andrew Loucks, Vice President, Marketing, Kellogg Canada Inc. “We are making history by bringing Canada’s first Tweet Shop to Canada’s most popular mall in downtown Toronto. For the first time ever, Canadians can use social media as currency and turn a Tweet today into a delicious cereal for breakfast tomorrow.”
Worth the Wait
Kellogg’s All-Bran Cranberries & Clusters cereal is the first new product in the All-Bran cereal line-up since 2008, and it’s worth the wait! Featuring toasted bran flakes with a lightly sweet vanilla flavour, tangy ruby red cranberries and crunchy multi-grain clusters, Kellogg’s All-Bran Cranberries & Clusters cereal tastes so good you’ll forget every one cup serving is a very high source of fibre. Best of all, it’s loaded with natural wheat bran, the best fibre to help promote digestive comfort 1 so you can feel good inside every day.
The Importance of Fibre
Fibre brings big benefits, yet Canadians are not getting enough of this important nutrient. In fact, the average fibre intake among Canadians is approximately half 2 of what it should be. Women aged 19 to 50 should consume 25 grams daily and men the same age should get 38 grams per day3 . With a proven link between eating a high fibre diet and a myriad of health benefits, Canadians don’t know what they are missing.
If you can’t make it down to the All-Bran Tweet Shop brought to you by Kellogg, Kellogg’s All-Bran Cranberries & Clusters cereal is also available the traditional way – find it on grocery store shelves today! You’ll love the taste. Your body will love the benefits.
