"We talked to some of our most enthusiastic fans and were pleased to hear
about the deep connection they have with the Wheat Thins brand," said Katie
Williams, Senior Marketing Director at Mondelez International. "The goal of
this campaign is to celebrate those who already love us, entice others to
discover that love and reward our consumers' passion for the brand in
meaningful ways."

In addition to the new ad,Wheat Thins will support the new "Must. Have. Wheat
Thins." campaign with a social media promotion in the weeks leading up to the
big game, one of the biggest snacking occasions of the year.Wheat Thins
understands that many fans are just as devoted to football as they are their
favorite snack, and to ensure its most passionate fans never run out of their
all-important game time snacks, is challenging consumers across the country to
determine whether San Francisco's or Baltimore's fans deserve free Wheat
Thins. Fans can share their love for one of the two cities by voting on
Twitter and Instagram with #SF #MUSTHAVEWHEATTHINS or #BAL
#MUSTHAVEWHEATTHINS. In the winning city with the most social 'noise,' or
votes, Wheat Thins will be making snack runs on Feb. 3, delivering free
products so fans can enjoy their favorite snacks without missing a single
play. For complete rules, please visit www.musthavewheatthins.com. 

The second ad in the "Must. Have. Wheat Thins." campaign will feature a
particularly frustrated fan unable to eat Wheat Thins – in this case, a
puppet! 

Both ads were produced by creative agency BEING. Ideas and innovation agency
