Aunt Jemima® Frozen Breakfast Launches First TV Spot in Five Years Highlighting Simplified Just-Like-Homemade Recipe
MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. (June 27, 2011) -- Aunt Jemima® Frozen Breakfast unveiled today its new TV spot and the second of a three-part social video series featuring real employees from Jackson, Tenn. – Jennifer Franklin, Charley Schumaker and Susie Tomlinson. While the first video put the spotlight on the team's "just-like-homemade" process, the new video centers on the high-quality, real ingredients used to make Aunt Jemima Frozen Pancakes and Frozen Waffles.
The new TV commercial, the first to be in aired by the brand since 2006, was created by Jun Group and directed by Kevin Arbouet. While originally produced for the Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast Facebook page, the company decided to showcase their newly refreshed frozen pancakes and waffles, which have a simplified ingredient statement, to a broader audience. The TV spot will air in the following select markets: Hartford, Conn.; Harrisburg, Pa.; Tampa Fla.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Charlotte, S.C.; Providence, R.I.; Orlando, Fla.; Jackson, Tenn.
"What started solely as a social and digital campaign changed when we saw how well people responded to Charley, Susie and Jennifer in the first video," says Andy Reichgut, vice president of marketing of frozen meals, Pinnacle Foods. "It was an easy decision to extend the campaign and feature our second video on TV, in addition to social media."
The iconic brand continues listening to their consumers to evaluate and update their products to provide consumers with the wholesome, great-tasting, "just-like-homemade" products they expect from Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast. That is why their frozen pancakes and waffles are made with real ingredients like eggs, milk and flour and contain no preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.
"We wanted to let America know that because we use real ingredients like the ones you can find in your own kitchen – milk, flour, eggs – our frozen pancakes and waffles taste just-like-homemade," says Reichgut. "And as proud as we are of what do put in our products, we're just as proud of the ingredients we don't use."
