TORONTO, December 6, 2021 - For more than 60 years Canadians have enjoyed Kraft Peanut Butter as a staple in their household, whether it be crunchy or smooth, and now the iconic brand has teamed up with so.da and Twitter to develop Kraft Peanut Butter Television, a digital first-of-its-kind variety show starring the beloved Kraft Peanut Butter bears, Crunchy and Smoothie.

The short-form series debuted with five episodes ranging from the timeless crunchy vs. smooth debate to blind dates and cookies for breakfast.

With the shift in how consumers interact with brands and our increasing ability to stretch beyond traditional advertising, we saw an opportunity to leverage Kraft Peanut Butter's distinctive icons to drive a brand-as-content strategy and build a deeper connection with our consumers, said Jacqueline Chao, Brand Manager, Brand Building & Innovation, Kraft Heinz Canada.

Kraft Peanut Butter Television marks our ninth Twitter Originals Fueled by so.da series and we couldn't be more pleased with the continued success of this marriage of content and distribution, said Dervla Kelly, Senior Vice President of Marketing and so.da.
