With the insight that moms prefer to enjoy their breakfast in glorious solitude, Kick’s branding and packaging refresh helped MOM’s Best® Cereals connect in novel ways. From life hacks to mom-focused storytelling, we created engagement all the way around the box that lifted this one-time niche Post® Consumer Brands into co-ops, grocery store chains and mass retailers alike. Oh, and the kids got their own boxes too.

Talk about taking transparency in food manufacturing literally. When building the Whole Foods®-exclusive line of cereals for Post® Consumer Brands, our first step was to ditch the box and print directly on the bag inside. Trees were saved. Customers were lured. And the competition, well, they liked it so much they copied us.

 All natural and all delicious. After exceeding sales expectations in the first year by over 200%, a line extension to hot cereal was only natural.
