The marriage of Magic Milk Straws and the Got Milk? ® campaign further supports the fact that Got Milk? ® is a powerful brand, not just a campaign
Minneapolis, MN (Vocus) September 29, 2010
Since launching earlier this year, Got Milk? ® Magic Milk Straws have become a vital solution for moms all over the U.S. who are seeking a flavorful and healthy way for their children to get the essential nutrients they need from milk. The popularity of the official Got Milk? ® product has aided in transforming the iconic ad campaign into a full-fledged brand.
Selling out in Target, Walgreens and CVS stores all over the U.S., Magic Milk Straws have filled the void between flavor and nutrition for kids who need the benefits of milk without the gluten, sugar, additives and fat of other milk flavoring products on the market.
“The marriage of Magic Milk Straws and the Got Milk? ® campaign further supports the fact that Got Milk? ® is a powerful brand, not just a campaign,” says Paul Henson, FMMI’s vice president of marketing. “We're so happy to provide the nutritional answer moms have been looking for alongside the brand.”
Parents, dietitians and physicians nationwide have contacted FMMI, the straws’ Minneapolis-based licensee and distributor, with testimonials and praise for helping change the way their children view -- and taste -- nutrition.
Ironically, Got Milk? ® Magic Milk Straws, which are lactose free, have also found a market among children with milk allergies. The straws can be used to flavor any nutritious milk beverage, including soy and almond milk. Together with Got Milk? ®, FMMI has helped extend the brand into broader markets.
In response to the product’s popularity, FMMI recently announced Magic Milk Straws will expand into thousands more retailers early next year, and will add new flavors, promotions and package sizes to its lineup of products.
