HP Hood is taking it (cream) to the streets with food truck tour of New England

The dairy processor uses every trendy marketing tactic: food trucks, Twitter, Facebook and cause marketing.

HOOD® PARTNERS WITH TOP CHEFS FOR SOUP BOUTIQUE INSPIRED BY HOOD CREAM

Dairy processor HP Hood, Lynnfield, Mass., is promoting its cream by sending a food truck to Boston, Portland, Maine, and Providence, R.I. from Nov. 26 to Dec. 13.

The truck, called the "Soup Boutique, Inspired by Hood Cream," is serving two cream-based soups. One soup recipe is prepared by Chef Jonathan Dunn of Lavishly Dunn Catering. The other is created by a local chef at each tour stop.

For each sample distributed, Hood is donating one dollar (up to $10,000) to a local food bank in each city.

The featured chefs will meet guests and Hood representatives will hand out recipe cards and coupons for Hood Cream products.
