Frigo CheeseHeads sweepstakes offers cheese for a year
Saputo's Frigo CheeseHeads string cheese brand taps into the presidential election year with a call to vote for a favorite cheese and a separate sweepstakes. The free-standing insert pictures eight varieties of string cheese under the headline "We give your family freedom of choice!" Scanning a quick-response (QR) code on a red-white-and-blue campaign button with a smart phone takes readers to a web page where they can vote. Voters are cautioned to "cheese wisely." The sweepstakes offers five top prizes: a year's supply of the cheese (awarded as 25 $6 coupons). Entry is on the brand's Facebook page or online through Nov. 11.
In a separate FSI, Saputo promotes its Frigo mozzarella cheese. A QR code leads to recipes, including cheese-stuffed chicken breasts and game day creamy chipotle spinach dip.
