Fumbly, Snappy Or Sidelined? SNICKERS® Unveils NFL Hunger Bars To Show Fans What Happens When Hunger Strikes On The Field

SNICKERS® Introduces NFL Hunger Bars to Show the Effects of Hunger on the Football Field

Hunger can affect anyone – even the toughest football players – getting them “Blocked,” “Sacked” or “Intercepted.” SNICKERS® is showing fans what happens when hunger strikes on the field with their new, punny (punt-y?) NFL-themed “Hunger Bars.”

This football season, SNICKERS®, a long-time partner with the NFL, is bringing to life hunger symptoms on the field with 26 bars, like “Sacked,” “Fumbled” and “Penalized.” An evolution of the brand’s award-winning “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign, SNICKERS® first launched Hunger Bars in 2015 to help fans identify who they become when they’re hungry.

“You’re off your game when you’re hungry,” said Michael Italia, Senior Brand Manager, SNICKERS® Brand. “As we continue to evolve the brand’s award-winning ‘You’re Not You When You’re Hungry’ campaign and give fans more ways to share how hunger affects them and their friends, our new SNICKERS® NFL Hunger Bars show the effects of hunger on the field – and on their fantasy picks.”

The full line-up of SNICKERS® NFL-themed Hunger Bars includes: Bench Warmer, Benched, Blocked, Defeated, Defensive, Deflected, Denied, Downed, False Start, Flagged, Fumbled, Fumbly, Guarded, Incomplete, Intercepted, Off-Sides, Out of Bounds, Pancaked, Penalized, Punted, Rushed, Sacked, Sidelined, Snappy, Tackled and Winded.

SNICKERS® plans to support the roll out of the new NFL-themed Hunger Bars through a variety of 360 marketing activities, including two new ads, Fantasy Night and Number One Fantasy, in-store displays and social media.
