Del Monte Fresh Giving Away 1000 Banana Costumes for Halloween
CORAL GABLES, FL – Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc. is encouraging healthy eating and living during the Halloween holiday by giving away 1,000 banana costumes through its third annual “Go Bananas! Halloween Costume Giveaway.”
Go Bananas! promotes Del Monte® premium bananas as a healthy and tasty alternative to traditional Halloween treats.
“We have seen a tremendous amount of positive feedback from consumers and we are excited to bring the promotion back for another year,” said Dennis Christou, VP Marketing NA. “Consumers love dressing up as bananas and it is a great opportunity to reward our loyal fans while at the same time promoting healthy Halloween treats. We haven’t seen anyone turn down a Del Monte banana costume yet, or the chance to pose in one! They’d all 'rather be a Del Monte banana'."
The promotion will randomly award a banana costume to 1,000 Del Monte social media fans who enter online at www.freshhalloween.com. Plus, any users who submit photos of past Halloween costumes using the hashtag #IdRatherBeABanana, will gain an additional five entries, according to a press release.
Go Bananas! will be supported across the U.S. and Canada with secondary banana stickers, point of sale material for banana Halloween displays and through Del Monte’s social media platforms.
The promotion will run from September 15th to October 5th to ensure delivery in time for Halloween.
