McCoys Muchos is now worth 5% of the total tortilla crisps market
McCoy’s Muchos is back on TV from 2 March with its ‘When Mexican flavour calls’ campaign, as KP Snacks announces a further £1m investment behind the brand.
The campaign will span TV and video-on-demand, and will feature animated characters, including a mariachi band, Mexican wrestlers and DJ Burro, the brand’s mascot.
It will be supported by in-store activity, with £1 price-marked (PMP) promotions available to convenience retailers until March.
